Dangerous Earth

This series combines archive footage, the latest research and the astonishing power of the planet's most spectacular events.

With the explosion in camera technology, millions of people now have full HD camera kit.

Things that once required specialist equipment and months of planning to film can now be captured by eye witnesses with a smart phone or GoPro.

Combined with the equally powerful images from the BBC archive, this rich vein of footage has tested our scientific understanding of these phenomena to its limits and beyond.

In this series, we discover how this new footage is pushing earth science into uncharted territory, from volcanoes that burn blue at night to hurricanes packing 1.5-trillion watts of energy.

The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart

The Bachelor Presents: Listen to Your Heart unites two of the most emotionally powerful forces in human life: music and love, as 20 single men and women embark on a journey to find love through music.

Singing well-known songs, both individually and as couples, they will look to form attractions through the melodies, find and reveal their feelings, and ultimately fall in love.

The eligible bachelors and bachelorettes will meet and explore their relationships while living together and going on Bachelor-style dates that focus on music.

Once the couples commit to each other, it will be time to take their relationship to the next level.

The harmony of the couples will be tested through musical challenges, including live performances judged by some of the biggest names in the music business.

Ultimately, the couples whose performances reveal their love and devotion to one another will continue to be given a chance to further their relationships until only one couple is left standing.

In the series premiere, "Week 1": The next chapter in Bachelor franchise history begins with the arrival of 20 hot, single musicians - 12 men and eight women - from across the USA looking for love and musical chemistry.

Who will find their musical soul mate and a lasting partnership? And who will leave as a solo act?

The renowned musical and celebrity judges featured on this previously recorded special event include Jason Mraz, Kesha, Toni Braxton, Andy Grammer, Pat Monahan, Ashlee Simpson-Ross, Evan Ross, Rita Wilson, Jewel and Taye Diggs.

Bachelor Nation favourites JoJo Fletcher and Jordan Rogers, Rachel Lindsay and Bryan Abasolo, Arie and Lauren Luyendyk Jr., and Kaitlyn Bristowe and Jason Tartick will also make appearances throughout the six episodes as the couples take a chance on love in search of their perfect duet.

The talented cast members arrive and chemistry is quickly established.

Relationships are already getting messy as two handsome musicians, Brandon and Sheridan, attempt to serenade the same woman.

Meanwhile, Rudi sends mixed messages in the hot tub when she dodges a kiss from a passionate bachelor; and Jamie, a hopeless romantic, finds herself kissing two of the suave bachelors - Ryan and Trevor - before the night is over.

Who will she choose to compose her love story with?

The first date card arrives and drama strikes a chord early as Ryan gets caught up in a love triangle.

He will try to win the heart of Jamie, his ambivalent, but beautiful love interest, as the couple heads off to record a duet version of John Mayer's "Gravity" with the legendary singer's producer, John Alag, at world-famous Capitol Records.

Will the couple fall in love over a shared microphone or does the young woman's heart belong to Trevor back at the ranch?

Matt, another charming musician, is the recipient of the second date card. Will he ask Rudi, the woman he connected with on the first night?

She seems confident he will, but instead, he chooses another lucky lady and the couple enjoys a private concert by the famous band The Plain White Tees.

Will his new love interest be singing his praises or are these two lacking romantic chemistry?

The season's first cocktail party finds the women handing out the roses in this musical "Bachelor in Paradise."

With tensions running high, the men pull out all the stops to avoid going home.

Julia, one highly sought-after beauty, is serenaded by two bachelors. Where will her heart lead her? Will she send the potential love of her life home?

Rudi and Matt clash, and Jamie finds it difficult to decide between her two ardent suitors.

At the end of the night, eight couples are united and four unlucky bachelors are sent home.

These duos are excited to turn up the volume.

But with new cast members arriving, will these couples take their relationships to the next level?
