The opening instalment sees Tim Peake explain how autumn was born four-and-a-half billion years ago.

There will also be segments about the Manx shearwater colony on Rum and a foray into fungus at Abernethy, one of the country's mushroom and toadstool hot spots.

Sold! See you on the sofa?

I'll bring the hot chocolate.
