Biomimicry: Inspired by Nature

Scientist and broadcaster Prof Trevor Cox explores a new wave of biomimicry - copying nature - which aims to recreate the processes and systems, from self-cleaning lotus leaves to the Namibian fog-basking beetle, which can harvest moisture from the dry desert air.

Trevor meets the people attempting to emulate nature's genius. Their goal is not just to copy nature's structures, but to recreate the processes and systems that evolution has taken billions of years to perfect.
