Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

David Attenborough guides the viewer through a miniature universe teeming with life, never normally seen, yet all around us. New technology reveals surreal vistas and their extraordinary inhabitants — swarming antler moths, desert locusts and a mountain of cockroaches — up close and personal. The bizarre and the beautiful are represented and their habits, lifestyles and characteristics explained in David Attenborough's inimitable style. Though small, these creatures are as ferocious as any seen before.

My kindergartener is doing his insect unit at school; and so we watched this as an adjunct to that. We were amazed. Not only is it entertaining, amusing and educational, but it is by far the most visually stunning presentation of the insect world to date. With fiber thin cameras, the millimetre world of insects comes to life for us humans for the first time on screen. And what a treat, for all family members! We liked the two series on mayflies, dragonflies & butterflies; and web weavers the most. All of the five series are fantastic, though, and it is not to be missed for BBc or David Attenbourrough fans.
