Life on Planet Ant - Intro

Professor Adam Hart is joined by a team of primary school scientists to explore the fascinating underground world of a leafcutter ant colony.

Almost one million ants are transported from Trinidad to the UK and studied in every detail as they reorganise themselves inside an enormous, transparent, man-made nest.

The young scientists get hands-on in their lab, carrying out their own investigations into the lives of these tiny insects - from reproduction to how they fit into the wider ecosystem.
