The story of Arabian ships and seafarers is often overlooked, which is unfortunate for they wrote much of the sea's history.

Dhows helped spread Islam throughout the world, turning the Arabs into a major political force. The principal link in the lucrative trade between East and West, they also made Arab merchants a fortune. Sons of Sinbad is a story of courageous sailors and savvy traders, whose legacy cannot be ignored. Locations: Egypt (Alexandria, Cairo, Aswan, Luxor), Oman (Sur, Salalah, Muscat, Sohar), Yemen (Mokha, Marib, Sana‚'a, Al Hudeidah), Kenya (Lamu).

For hundreds of years, human skin colour has been used as a marker of race. Now, science is uncovering the intricate relationship between skin colour and environment. When our ancient ancestors in Equatorial Africa lost their body hair and ventured out into the open savannah, their skin had to become dark to resist strong UV radiation. Perfectly adapted to the environment, the black skin of Africans is one of Nature's greatest achievements for the survival of the human species. This may not sound new, but in 2000, Penn State University anthropologist Nina Jablonski proposed a startling new explanation as to why human skin has so many colours. Her study suggested that pigmentation did not evolve to prevent skin cancer, but primarily to help the human body maintain the right balance of two crucial vitamins essential for reproduction and body development. As a result, skin colour developed as a perfect compromise: allowing enough sunlight to stimulate the production of Vitamin D, but screening the body from harmful rays that destroy folic acid - a vitamin necessary for reproductive success.

Catalyst - Episode 22
If you struggle to get your teen out of bed in the mornings and off the computer at night, it's not necessarily their fault. A number of research projects have found that teenagers experience a delay in their sleep phase timing which makes them want to go to sleep, and wake up later. Still, teenagers generally don't get enough sleep which can lead to obesity, bad memory & poor grades, as well as mood disorders and potentially more serious mental health issues. Graham Phillips reports on the biological changes that turn teenagers into night owls.
