David Attenborough

New BBC series: Life

October 16th, 2009

The BBC’s new flagship natural history series Life has just begun in Britain. Narrated by the the wise old man of nature David Attenborough, it portrays stunning scenes of various forms of animal behaviour, and looks are how animals have adapted and evolved to flourish in their own unique environments. Some clips are now available online including this one of an unsinkable Pygmy gecko. These geckos have hydrophobic skin which repels water just like a waterproof jacket.

Each week, incredible clips from the programme will be available online. The 10-part series of Life is currently showing on BBC One “Life” and will include studies of Reptiles/Amphibians, Mammals, Fish, Birds, Insects, Creatures of the Deep, Plants and Primates. It will then gradually become available around the rest of the world. The clips are avaiable as a way of promoting the BBC Wild Live Finder <http://www.bbc.co.uk/nature/> Launched in 2009, this BBC site features short video and audio clips from the past thirty years of wildlife film making. The material can be searched by species or by habitat, adaptation (behaviour, communication, and so on), or ecozone.
