Wild Caribbean: Life's a breeze

(BBC2, 9pm)
Between June and November every year, the West Indies take combination punches from mother nature -15 hurricanes hammered into the islands in the very bad year of 2005. This third film reveals that the reefs, as well as the land, feel the brunt, with lobsters skittering off to deeper waters when they sense the adverse weather approaching, leaving the coral to cling on for dear life. Devastation is invariably followed by regeneration, but is global warming upping the ante?
