Packed with excitement, revelation and entertainment - and stunning screen 'firsts' - this breathtaking ten-part blockbuster brings you 130 incredible stories from the frontiers of the natural world. Discover the glorious variety of life on Earth and the spectacular and extraordinary tactics animals and plants have developed to stay alive. This is evolution in action, individual creatures under extreme pressure to overcome challenges from adversaries and their environment, pushing the boundaries of behaviour. Cutting-edge cinematic techniques capture unprecedented, astonishingly beautiful sequences: birds running and dancing on the water's surface in dazzlingly intricate displays of courtship and fidelity, fish outwitting predators by using their fins to take flight, flies competing in a mesmerising eyeball-inflation contest... More than four years in the making, filmed over 3000 days, across every continent and in every habitat, this is Life - as you've never seen it before.
