Summary Taking the globe as its canvas, and drawing on science, history, art and other disciplines, this three-part series is a visual exploration of how we view colours, how we make them, and the meanings they hold in our world. From ancient ochre cave paintings in Australia to Masai tribal rituals in East Africa; and from India's holy festival to one of the world's leading colour forecasters in downtown Manhattan, it journeys across 16 countries and six continents. This episode focuses on the nature of colour. It draws on the latest science to find out how - and why - humans and other living things view the world in colour. For those of us who can see colour, it is fundamental to our existence. The question is where does this mysterious force originate and do we all see colour the same way?
