Description

    THE DAVID ATTENBOROUGH 90TH BIRTHDAY COLLECTION

    Eight outstanding programmes from the world's greatest natural history presenter.

    Galapagos
    Two hundred years after Charles Darwin set foot on the shores of the Galapagos Islands, David Attenborough travels to this wild and mysterious archipelago. Amongst the flora and fauna of these enchanted volcanic islands, Darwin formulated his groundbreaking theories on evolution. Journey with Attenborough to explore how life on the islands has continued to evolve in biological isolation, and how the ever-changing volcanic landscape has given birth to species and sub-species that exist nowhere else in the world. Encompassing treacherous journeys, life-forms that forge unlikely companionships, and survival against all odds, Galapagos tells the story of an evolutionary melting pot in which anything and everything is possible.

    Kingdom of Plants
    Kingdom of Plants is an astonishingly beautiful three part series written and presented by David Attenborough. Entering the strangely slow world of plant time, Attenborough explores how plants cleverly adapt to the changing seasons, including the explosive drama of seed dispersal and the bursts of colour as they bloom. Using exquisite high definition footage to complement his own inimitable narrative style, David traces plants from their beginnings on land to their vital place in nature today, discovering new revelations along the way.

    Rise of Animals
    The evolution of the vertebrates, animals with backbones, is one of the greatest stories in natural history. From crocodiles and whales to tigers, birds and humans, their kind is extraordinary for their beauty, variety and adaptability. For millennia, they have developed astonishing ways of living in all the world?s environments. David Attenborough, who has a unique perspective on them all, embarks on a remarkable journey of discovery. Now new scientific discoveries and living fossils, animals with biological links to their ancestral past, enable him to tell the fascinating story of how animals have come to be the way they are today.

    Natural History Museum Alive
    In this stunning new project Attenborough takes us on a journey through the world-famous Natural History Museum in London, revealing it as it's never been seen before, in a compelling tale of discovery, adventure and magic. As the doors are locked and night falls, Attenborough meets the extinct creatures that fascinate him the most, as they magically come alive in front of his eyes; dinosaurs, ice age beasts and giant reptiles. Featuring ground-breaking CGI technology, this 90 minute spectacular is a special collaboration with experts and curators from the Natural History Museum, and helps fulfil the dreams of the nation's favourite naturalist.

    Micro Monsters
    Right beneath our feet is a secret world of disguise and espionage, social networking and courtship, rape and pillage, parenthood and relationships. The terrestrial arthropods - the bugs - are the most dominant animals on our planet. They outnumber us in their hundreds of billions and have survived for 500 million years. They have outlived every catastrophe Earth has thrown at them, seen the dinosaurs come and go and even witnessed our own arrival.

    Conquest of the Skies
    David Attenborough's Conquest Of The Skies, the latest landmark series from David Attenborough tells the story of the intricate engineering behind nature's greatest aeronauts. From the double BAFTA award-winning team behind Natural History Museum Alive and Flying Monsters, Conquest Of The Skies will reveal the dazzling world of flight as never before. David analyses gliding reptiles, parachuting mammals, acrobatic insects and the exquisite and intricate aerial world of birds on location at a number of locations all over the world including China, Rome, Scotland, Ecuador and Borneo.

    Great Barrier Reef
    Great Barrier Reef with David Attenborough combines cutting edge scientific research alongside innovative filming techniques. By using the very latest infrared cameras, the hatching of the iconic clownfish is witnessed for the very first time whilst time-lapse macro cameras will expose behaviour of the normally unseen tiny coral animals that built the entire Reef and also reveal the most magical reproduction event on the planet, the annual coral spawn. Furthermore, the programme will show how a shrimp with vision like no other animal on the planet views the natural wonder.

    Attenborough at 90: Behind the Lens
    This very special film sees award-winning writer, broadcaster and naturalist Sir David Attenborough talk to presenter Kirsty Young about his life and career as he approaches his 90th birthday. Filmed in front of a live audience and with special guests joining them on stage, Kirsty and David discuss the many pivotal moments of his life, from collecting fossils in the Lake District during his childhood through to his pioneering work on natural history programmes that have inspired, entertained and educated so many people around the world. David's fascinating stories are illustrated with footage from the BBC's extensive natural history archive, highlighting some of the most unforgettable moments of his career. The film also uncovers the story behind each moment and finds out what happened after the cameras stopped rolling.
