Summary In this series Professor Iain Stewart tells a stunning story about our planet. He reveals how the greatest changes to the Earth have been driven, above all, by plants. In the second episode, Iain discovers how flowers have transformed our planet. He journeys to the remote islands of the South Pacific to track down the earliest flowers. In the deserts of Africa and rainforests of Vietnam, he sees how they brought brilliant colour to the most barren landscapes and sculpted the earth itself. And he learns how they drove the evolution of all animals - kick-starting our human story
