Life in the Undergrowth

Invasion Of The Land

Season 1, Episode 1 of 5

Open your eyes to the bizarre, ferocious and surprisingly beautiful world of the invertebrates! Join David Attenborough on his groundbreaking exploration into a spectacular miniature universe never normally seen, but teeming all around us. Not just bugs and beetles, but exotic cicadas, neon glow worms, intricate silk-weaving spiders and iridescent dragonflies - not to mention a whole host of other incredible life forms and intimate, startling behavior. Thanks to technical innovations in lighting, optics and computerized motion control, this turbulent, super-organized world is finally revealed from the perspective of its extraordinary inhabitants. These beasts may be miniscule, but they live life on a truly grand scale.
