Water plants create some of the most beautiful, bizarre and important habitats on earth. To hold on in torrents, plants use a kind of superglue. Some are armed with vicious weapons to fight titanic battles for space. Others form perfect spheres and escape from animal enemies by rolling. Where nutrients are washed away, plants turn into hunters of animals, laying traps and even counting to ensure their success.

Simon Schama goes both east and west, to Papal Rome but also to Ottoman Istanbul and Mughal Lahore and Agra, exploring their connections and rivalries, and examining how the role of artists from the different traditions of West and East developed in the years following the Renaissances. Their rivalry unfolded most spectacularly in the creation of domes: in Ottoman Istanbul Mimar Sinan builds the light-flooded Süleymaniye mosque, while in Rome Michelangelo designs the dome of St Peter's Basilica.

Between the tropics and the frozen poles lies a region dominated by relentless change in the form of the four seasons: spring, summer, autumn and winter. Each one presents plants with huge challenges, from ice and snow to raging fires, from intense competition to surprising enemies. This is a world of astonishing variety and vibrant colour. To survive here plants must use strategy, deception and remarkable feats of engineering. Most importantly, they must get their timing right.

As historian of empire David Olusoga shows, art was always on the frontline. Each cultural contact at this time left a mark on both sides: the magnificent Benin bronzes record the meeting of an ancient West African kingdom and Portuguese voyagers in a spirit of mutual respect and exchange.
