The second episode of a two-part documentary in which Chris Packham and Martha Kearney reveal the mysteries of the honey bee. Chris and Martha check up on the tagged bees.
Chris Packham and Martha Kearney reveal the mysteries of that iconic insect of the British countryside, the honey bee.
Chris and Martha discover which of our tagged bees have survived over the midsummer week - a frenetic nectar and pollen gathering period - and if they have collected enough food at this critical time to see them through the winter. With the help of Prof Adam Hart they will also explore the queen's remarkably deadly mating ritual and look at how bees can help us medically and how we can help them.
