Enjoy the show - the new season of BBC natural history programmes
Wonder Monkey likes to celebrate all things nature, and that includes celebrating some ground-breaking natural history film making.
Last month I passed on news of a novel short film called Loom, which used computer generated graphics to depict a spider catching and eating a moth, offering a new perspective on the hunt in the process.
The makers of Loom based their depiction in part on real natural history films shot by the BBC’s own Natural History Unit in Bristol, to which BBC Nature online and Wonder Monkey is affiliated.
Now the NHU is showing what it too is capable of producing.
Please sit back and enjoy a taster of the upcoming season of natural programmes that will be shown by the BBC.
It includes a first look at Frozen Planet, an epic landmark series that portrays the coldest reaches on Earth, recording a snapshot of the polar regions that may end up being lost forever.
And Africa, which will tell the story of the continent’s wildlife like never before.
Other programmes are more intimate shows that will dive deeper into the natural world.
These programmes are entertaining, inspiring and uplifting.
They will show you aspects of the natural world you will have never seen before, and may never forget.
Enjoy the show.
