David Attenborough's natural history series.

Tropical rainforests cover just three per cent of our planet, yet are home to a staggering 50 per cent of the world's species. They are the richest environments on earth but also the most competitive. Travelling through this enchanted world, we uncover the amazing strategies its inhabitants adopt in order to survive. Look out for the flying frog mating orgy and the sinister bodysnatching cordyceps fungi that eat their victims alive.
