For some years past NRK's Arild Hagen has ranged the world in search of material for his new series - six programmes devoted to some of nature's most remarkable and beautiful shapes and patterns.

Nature offers some of the most exquisite and refined geometrical designs imaginable. Take, for example, the hexagonal structure of a honeycomb. Or the intricate spirals of a seashell, logo of this new television series, which has its origins in the delicate, coiled shell of a fossilized ammonoid, a long-extinct cephalopod. Some of these shapes have inspired human architectural styles and inventions, while others have been a source of wonder and reflection. Others again are firmly entrenched in popular beliefs and religions.
