More than 30 animatronic spy cameras disguised as animals secretly record behavior in the wild in this "Nature" miniseries from WNET and BBC. The series captures rarely seen behavior that reveals how animals possess emotions and behavior similar to humans -- including the capacity to love, grieve, deceive and invent. Special sequences include a female Nile crocodile gathering her babies in her mouth and carrying them underwater; a female red-billed hornbill waits with her chicks for her mate to bring them food; and a young chimp befriends an abandoned genet kitten.

From the frozen tundra in the north to the dry forests of the equator, Sir David Attenborough narrates a compelling view of the planet. "Planet Earth" was the first natural history documentary to be filmed in high definition, and now a decade later improved technology has made it possible to capture further details, from elusive animal behaviors to previously inaccessible remote landscapes. In addition to exploring the wilderness, the series examines urban dwellings, focusing on animals that have adapted to city life.

The nature series "Life Story," a collaboration between BBC and The Open University, shows how animals try to overcome the challenges they face throughout their lives to eventually continue their bloodlines by having offspring. The show, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, aims to give viewers an idea of what it is like for animals who face difficult choices in nature. Episodes document the journey of animals surviving the hazards of being young through learning how to survive as an adult, climbing the social ladder, getting a mate and becoming a parent.
Whenever documentary filmmakers at Discovery Channel and the BBC unite for a project, stellar television seems to follow. "Planet Earth: Africa" stems from this collaboration, as did the breakthrough natural history series "Life" in 2009. David Attenborough narrated that one, and he's back to take viewers on a journey through the vast and diverse continent of Africa. Four years in the making, during which more than 2,000 hours of video were shot, the program consists of six hour-long episodes that feature an array of never-before-filmed species, animal behaviors and previously unknown places. Cameras uncover the extreme dangers of the Kalahari, the dense forests and snow-capped peaks of the Savannah, the dynamic Congo rainforest, the ever-changing climate of the Cape and the massive and parched Sahara.
"Dynasties" is a documentary by Sir David Attenborough as he goes on a journey behind some of the most celebrated and endangered animals on the planet. Follow the stories of penguins, chimpanzees, lions, painted wolves, and tigers. Each of these animals is locked in a heroic struggle against the forces of nature and their rivals -- they face harsh environmental conditions, dangerous predators, and even the greatest threat: humans. They actively seek to fight for their survival and the survival of their families -- their dynasties.
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.
Madagascar is a land just off the coast of Africa that is full of misty mountains, tropical rainforests and spiny desert scrub. It is also home to strange wildlife, much of which is not found elsewhere on Earth. This documentary series, from the BBC's Natural History Unit, showcases the island's diverse and rare wildlife, some of it being filmed for the first time. Among the animals featured on "Madagascar" are lemurs, frogs that change color from brown to yellow, wasps that pluck tadpoles from trees and fish that swim upside down. David Attenborough narrates the three-part series.
