The Kimberley

Coast Australia, Series 1 Episode 1 of 8

After almost a decade exploring the coastline of Britain and Europe, historian and archaeologist Neil Oliver is leading a local team of presenters to discover Australia's spectacular coastline - its people, their history, and its many natural wonders.

In the pristine Kimberley of Western Australia, Tim Flannery walks in primeval tracks along the legendary Dinosaur Coast. Neil wrestles the southern hemisphere's biggest tides at the surging Horizontal Falls, and Xanthe Mallett explores a unique maritime war grave.

Neil also discovers Broome's dark pearling history and the delicate science of pearl cultivation. Brendan Moar learns the art of indigenous raft making and Emma Johnston investigates the lush, protected habitat of migratory shorebirds.

Finally, Neil experiences the indigenous 'dreaming' stories through a little sacred maintenance on some ancient rock art at Freshwater Cove.
