A four part award winning series from ABC Natural History Unit that describes the powerful climate systems that batter Australia and how they affect the weather, wildlife and people of this island continent. Using powerful never-before-seen cinematography, state-of-the-art computer graphics and satellite images, each program traces the development of one extreme climatic force and explains how Australia's plants and animals cope with these long term weather events. Meet La Nina - a combination of torrential rainfall, cyclones and massive floods in Australia is mirror imaged in South America as in suffers drought. In Souther Exposure, the sudden storms from Antarctica and the Southern Ocean race northwards towards southern Australia at any time of the year. The third part of this series introduces El Nino, which brings heartbreaking droughts and bushfires to Australia while South America drowns in rains and floods. And the final episode follows the spectacular ferocity of the Monsoon as it swings with the sun between Asia and Australia.
