Four years in the making, and filmed on every continent, this series of evolution in action narrated by David Attenborough tells 130 enthralling tales from the frontiers of the natural world.
We’ve come to expect superb standards from the BBC Natural History Unit; well this ten-part series is among very best. The focus of the series is the extraordinary lengths that animals and plants go in which to survive. And if this sounds like something you have seen before, believe me, you haven’t. This is new, spectacular material and it is absolutely enthrallng.
With 130 stories from the frontiers of the natural world, Life focuses on the special tricks and techniques that have enabled species to survive and reproduce in their challenging environments, often by pushing the boundaries of their behaviour.
Cutting-edge cinematic techniques capture unprecedented, beautiful sequences such as birds running and dancing on the water’s surface in intricate displays of courtship and fidelity, fish outwitting predators by using their fins to take flight, frogs turning into pebbles to cheat death and flies competing in mesmerising eyeball inflation contests.
