The team behind the triple-Emmy Award-winning series "David Attenborough's First Life" return with another wildlife spectacular hosted by the nature veteran. The focus of the series is the Great Barrier Reef, which Attenborough became enthralled with after filming there back in 1957. Revisiting the area once again with the latest camera technology allows the filming crew to capture even the smallest life-forms. Through the use of satellite scanning, the expanse of the world's largest living organism is viewed in all its glory.
The planet is teeming with myriad life forms, both plant and animal, all interlocked in a struggle for survival. As time goes on, some living things are forced to adapt and change to survive. This series chronicles some of the most unusual, if not downright bizarre, behaviors that living organisms have devised to keep their species alive. The 11-episode series was four years in the making, taking camera crews to every continent and habitat.
Produced by the team that created BBC's "Planet Earth" series, "The Hunt" explores the relationship between predators and their prey. Sir David Attenborough narrates this documentary while the cameras follow the animals in their natural habitats. With a specific focus on strategy, the hunters are examined in detail -- from their use of the environment to their sharp instincts and physical prowess. On the other side of the fence are the hunted, which use their senses and defense tactics to flee when they feel threatened. Each episode centers on a different habitat, and the last one focuses on the state of the planet.
