PLANT ODYSSEYS EPISODE 1

A story of flowers through time...

There are some 300,000 species of flowering plant on Earth. A small number have so captivated humans across the ages that they have become iconic, instantly recognisable as part of our everyday life. More than mere ornaments found in our gardens or home - behind their beautiful blooms lies an incredible evolutionary story.

This series explores the biological and botanical history of four iconic plants - including the rose, the tulip and the water lily. It traces each plant's epic journey across millennia, looking at how millions of years of evolution have created unique characteristics and how man has bent these traits to his will and the vagaries of fashion. But the surprises aren't purely biological. These plants have had an immeasurable impact on man.

Plant Odysseys also reveals not only how we have changed these plants but how they, in turn, have changed us.

Note: This BBC title not available in Hong Kong, Macau, Taiwan, Mainland China, Japan, USA, Canada.

HOW TO GROW A PLANET: THE POWER OF FLOWERS

The power of plant life

We might think humans are the most powerful living thing on Earth, but it's plants that time and again have set the agenda for life. All animals rely on plants for their survival. This is not an accident - they are the most powerful evolutionary force on Earth.

Plants enabled amphibians to leave the water, they had a hand in the rise and fall of the dinosaurs, and they ensured the ultimate triumph of insects, mammals, birds and even us - all for their own benefit. Because plants have only ever had one goal - the total domination of the planet. It is a story of ruthless ingenuity, seduction and deception; of unimaginable power and ambition. An epic tale, How to Grow a Planet offers a stunning new perspective on Earth history.

FLOWER IDENTIFICATION

Comprehending the correct use of flowers and plants for floral arrangements is vital to the success of a florist and an arrangement. This presentation describes the various plants and flowers used in floral arrangements. Each flower will be classified into one of four categories: line, mass, form and filler. Additional flowers which do not fit into these three categories are classified with plants into the following categories: foliage and greenery, and potted plants. The students will learn both the botanical and common name of the flowers and plants along with their countries of origin. With assistance of pictures, students will be able to classify and identify each flower or plant in the presentation.

PLANT TAXONOMY

What is the difference between a plant species and a sub-species, and how are those plants related to hybrids, varieties and forms? These questions have often created frustration and confusion between botanists, horticulturists and scientists. Finally there is a detailed video which explains the systems for naming, classifying and identifying plants. Plant Taxonomy: The Universal Language, is a video program which covers many related topics including scientific nomenclature, classification, identification and field botany. The first half of the program starts by introducing viewers to the internationally recognized system of binomial nomenclature developed by Carl Linnaeus(1707-1778). While older models of classification are based on plant morphology, this program also presents new systems based on recent molecular findings. See how plant samples and records are stored in a modern herbarium. Text graphics make it easy for students to grasp the many rules which are used when recording plant names. The second half of the video shows how to develop observation skills for recognizing plant families in gardens and natural environments. Clear and readable text is shown as the narrator presents the terms used to describe flowers and leaves. These terms are repeated as students see how to identify flowering plant families and species. Dichotymous keys are shown alongside video images which help to illustrate the key terms and definitions as they are being narrated. Extensive graphics, clear examples, original music and beautiful photography make this program a powerful resource on this complex yet important topic.

PHOTOSYNTHESIS: TRANSFORMING LIGHT TO LIFE

Our Photosynthesis DVD documents how scientists unraveled the mystery of photosynthesis. It then examines the structural adaptations in leaves that facilitate photosynthesis, the nature of visible light, and the structure of chloroplasts. It then goes on to explain how the light dependent reactions that occur in photosystems I and II produce ATP and other high energy molecules that are then used to produce glucose via the light independent C3 and C4 cycles which are compared and contrasted to one another
