Life On Earth
Life On Earth offers a chronological account of the flora and fauna of planet Earth over a period of 3,500 million years.

The Living Planet
An ambitious 12-part documentary that spanned the globe with portraits of each of the major geographical regions that offer a home to life.

Life In The Freezer
Life In The Freezer reveals incomparable standards of natural history filming to trace Antarctica’s seasonal cycle from the long winter months when the formation of ice almost doubles its surface area, to the brief summer when the race to breed really heats up.

The Private Life Of Plants
David Attenborough takes us through each aspect of plants’ lives – travelling, growing, flowering, their struggle with other plants and animals, and the ingenious way they adapt to even the harshest of conditions.

The Life Of Birds
The Life Of Birds celebrates the incredible variety of the world’s best-loved creatures and provides fresh insight into the fascinating way of life.

The Life Of Mammals
The Life Of Mammals features many of the planet’s most fascinating species, including ourselves, and illustrates how mammals have become so incredibly diverse and successful.

Life In The Undergrowth
Join David Attenborough on his ground-breaking exploration in a spectacular miniature universe never normally seen, but teeming all around us. These creatures may be minuscule, but they live life on a truly grand scale.

Life In Cold Blood
