The story behind the most fascinating, hilarious and dramatic quests to find a mate and leave a lasting legacy.
Some species need to overcome the challenges of a vast environment just to find a member of the opposite sex. Others find themselves pitched against their neighbours in mass mating aggregations. Some must impress with complex displays. Others build extraordinary structures just to prove their worth. One thing, however, connects them all – the drive to succeed at all costs.
Exploring five different habitats across six continents, this series reveals the varied, fascinating and downright bizarre strategies different animals use to find and attract a mate. It is the ultimate inside view on what it takes to succeed at the mating game.
Planet Earth is perfect.
Everything about our world - its size, its distance from the Sun, its spin and tilt, its moon - is perfectly suited to our existence, and our planet's natural forces perfectly nurture life. A global weather system circulates and distributes fresh water to all corners of the globe, marine currents deliver nutrients to even the deepest reaches of the ocean, sunlight warms and energises everything it touches, and powerful volcanoes create and fertilise the land. As a result, there is literally no part of our planet where life can’t be found.
This stunningly ambitious series brings to life the most memorable events in the history of the solar system, by using groundbreaking visual effects to tell the thrilling story of all eight planets.
Transporting you to the surface of these dynamic worlds to witness the moments of high drama that shaped each one, The Planets reveals how the latest science allows us to unlock their past lives. It pieces together clues of magnificent lost waterfalls on Mars, the mass planetary migrations as they jostled for position early in their history, and even the distant fate of Saturn as one of its moons awakens to form a beautiful water world.

The latest David Attenborough nature documentary series, shot in HD. This ambitious 2006 series, described as 'the definitive look at the diversity of our planet' was the first ever to be filmed entirely in high definition. Every episode but the first one looks at one of the Earth's natural habitats and examines its local features, together with the breadth of fauna found there. While filming it, the crew caught several firsts - places and animals never before caught on camera. The fact that it was co-funded by Discovery Channel, BBC and Japan's NHK, took 5 years to make and was shot in over 200 locations is apparent and the series is everything you'd expect from Sir David Attenborough and his team if they were unconstrained by budget or practicality.
Box set containing the complete BBC natural history series examining life beneath the world's oceans. 'The Blue Planet' presents an overview of the programmes to come, offering a sense of the amazing variety and complexity of the underwater kingdom. 'The Deep' explores the deepest depths of the oceans and looks at the predators which live there. 'Open Ocean' examines the stretches of deserted sea where very little life can be found, except some of the most dangerous predators of all. In 'Frozen Seas' life in the Arctic seas is compared with life in the Antarctic. 'Seasonal Seas' looks at the way the sun effects the marine environment in the temperate seas. 'Coral Seas' examines the way coral reefs are formed, the life which flourishes among them, and the destruction which ultimately comes their way. In 'Tidal Seas' the series examines tidal movements and their effect upon marine life. And finally 'Coasts' looks at the way underwater life uses the regions above the tide line, a habitat which holds few indigenous species but plays host to many visitors. Also included are two special episodes: 'Making Waves', a look at some of the characters who helped bring the series to the screen; and 'Deep Trouble', an investigation of man's relation to the sea.
David Attenborough looks back over a career that encompasses over sixty years of natural history film making. Focusing on three areas of particular interest, the pioneering presenter examines how science, the environment and film making itself have changed during his lifetime.
Having completed travelling around the World in 80 days, Michael Palin set out to travel along the 30 degree East line of longtitude - from the North to the South Pole. This, however, proved much more of a challenge and Palin, and his film crew, managed to use most modes of transport to travel through 17 countries over 5 months.
The Galapagos islands are a fascinating microcosm of our planet and home to some of the most astonishing creatures found anywhere on Earth: iguanas swim the sea like dragons, short-eared owls stalk petrels by day and 500 pound giant tortoises bellow over lava fields..
One thousand kilometres due west of Ecuador, where four major ocean currents unite, vast undersea volcanoes break the surface of the Pacific Ocean. Early explorers described these otherworldly islands as 'Las Encantadas'... 'the Enchanted Isles', but in time they became known as 'Galapagos'., the 'Islands of the Tortoises'.
Using Spectacular HiDefinition cinematography from land, sea and air, and blending dramatic landscapes with intimate animal behaviour, drama reconstruction and stunning satellite imagery, this ambitious series presents the most complete portrait ever of these fascinating islands.
Galapagos reveals how wildlife has found the most enterprising ways to get to grips with this restless volcanic outpost, why these islands are such a fascinating showcase for evolution, and the profound forces that influence the delicate balance of life.
Against a backdrop of smouldering volcanoes, brittle lava fields, fields of giant cactus and wave-pounded shores, witness blue-footed boobies plunge-diving in to treacherous waters, sea lions surfing, the beautiful courtship dance of the waved albatross, Darwin's finches as crafty tool-users and hawks hunting marine iguanas.
Galapagos is unlike any other place on Earth.
The first two series of the documentary presented by esteemed British wildlife commentator David Attenborough exploring some of the natural world's greatest curiosities. Among the issues examined by Attenborough are the role electric eels played in human research into electricity and other quirks in animals that have proved interesting to scientists and researchers. The broadcaster also looks at pairs of animals that share certain traits such as the emperor penguin and wood frog, both of which can live in exceptionally cold conditions; the rhino and the hedgehog, which possess formidable defences to deter predators; and gorillas and vampire bats, which have a reputation for aggression that is largely unwarranted by their behaviour.
The demise of the dinosaurs, 65 million years ago, did not leave the world empty. A succession of extraordinary creatures has since come and gone, leading to our own ancestors, and yet we know virtually nothing about them. These bizarre beasts were some of the most fascinating creatures ever to have inhabited our planet.
The award-winning team that brought us Walking With Dinosaurs now explores the rise of the mammals. The latest scientific findings, advanced computer graphics and strong natural history stories are combined as we return to the sights and sounds of extinct worlds... this time full of life you hardly knew existed.
Walking With Beasts takes you on a journey through time to distant worlds: from the hottest, wettest climate the earth has ever known to one of the coldest... the Ice Age. See the early forerunners of the whale (walking!), avoid the carnivorous pig the size of a rhino, and pity the horse the size of a cat, eaten by a bird the height of a man!
And we humans are not safe either... mighty saber-toothed cats with teeth the size of carving knives have a taste for our own ancestors!
Walking With Dinosaurs
The makers of Walking With Dinosaurs returned to make two specials, The Ballad Of Big Al and Land Of Giants & The Giant Claw to continue to delight fans of the original series.
The Ballad of Big Al
Land of Giants & The Giant Claw
Transporting you to locations across the globe and back in time through tens of millions of years, Planet Dinosaur uses unique hi-tech graphics to bring to life the most awesome and amazing creatures that ever lived. Almost all the dinosaurs featured were discovered in the last 10 years or so and forced a rewriting of the prehistory books.
Palaeontologists now know that dinosaurs spread to every part of the globe, and evolved in ways so monstrous, horrific and bizarre they make T Rex look very tame indeed. Planet Dinosaur is a completely immersive visual experience studded with curious facts and jaw-dropping action as well as charismatic monsters.
Presenting a brand-new global perspective on the prehistoric era, the series re-creates the creatures, their habitats and how they lived, from analysing their bones to watching them fight to the death.
Triple bill of nature documentary series narrated by Sir David Attenborough.
Amazon presenter Bruce Parry turns his attention to the Arctic Circle. Indigenous ways of life that have remained virtually unchanged for millennia will cease within our lifetimes. Marine mammal hunters, like the Inuit of Northern Greenland, will have to find new ways to live in this harsh place. They are the last of their kind. But for others, this rapidly changing world promises great opportunity. The Arctic is rich in oil, gas and minerals. The US geological survey estimates that 25% of the world's undiscovered oil and gas could be located under the polar ice cap.
However this series will not be a series about the politics or science of global warming. The focus will be human. Bruce, and his BAFTA-winning production team, have found a method of telling important global stories with humour and warmth, drawing a large, young audience to often difficult issues. Same immersive format as Amazon, with Parry embedding himself in a series of indigenous tribes plus camps of Westerners who make their living out of the region’s natural resources.
