This three-part series takes a look at locations that feature some of the most spectacular seasonal changes in the world. `Earth's Greatest Spectacles', narrated by actor Domhnall Gleeson, showcases the yearly transformations, in addition to exploring the processes that cause the changes to occur and showing how the local wildlife adapt to the changing conditions. Each episode highlights a different location - the Svalbard Islands in the Arctic Ocean, which is home to thousands of polar bears; Botswana's Okavango Delta, which is produced by seasonal flooding; and American region New England, home of some of the most incredible colour changes on Earth as leaves turn from green to various shades of gold and red each autumn.
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.

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.
