Revelatory new science and a spectacular journey are at the core of this stylistic 3-part series, which travels progressively deeper towards the earth’s core, to meet the bizarre creatures that inhabit the world beneath our feet, and uncover the remarkable strategies by which animals survive and thrive in a world devoid of light.

Wild Underground

It is estimated that that there are more than one billion organisms in a pinch of soil, and many of them perform functions essential to all life on the planet. Yet we know more about deep space than the world below our feet. In this 3-part series, biologist, Mike Dilger, invites you to join him on a thrilling tour into the hidden depths of this unfamiliar subterranean world.
