Series of talks by Sir David Attenborough on the natural histories of creatures and plants from around the world.

Why do we collect things? Is it a male response to ancient hunting instincts to provide food for the family? Today, collecting by children is in decline, and with it the development of an early fascination with the natural world around them.
