    Arctic, Season 1 | Episode 4

    A windswept polar desert, the Arctic is one of the last extensive areas of wilderness remaining in the world. It is also among the least hospitable environments known to man – with its ever-changing icy landscape and ferocious weather conditions helping shield it from human influence. Isolated and largely unpopulated, the Arctic has preserved a specialized and surprisingly abundant variety of animals. Here, in the northernmost part of the globe, can be found Polar Bears, Walruses, Killer Whales, Moose and Wolves.

    The Early Bird, Season 1 | Episode 7

    Predator versus prey: in this instalment we analyze three attack-escape scenarios involving bird predators and their prey. One is the climbing flight escape, another is horizontal speeding, and thirdly, there is turning and diving to avoid capture. Predator and prey attack-escape behavior is another outcome of the evolutionary arms race.

    Reptiles, Season 1 | Episode 8

    Crocodiles, like all living reptiles, they are descended from animals that roamed the Earth about 250 million years ago. There's something so viscerally terrifying about these creatures that lay in wait for their prey, just under the waterline. Like all reptiles, snakes rely on the heat of the sun to control their body temperature.

    Savage Islands Giants, 1

    Halfway between New Zealand and Antarctica the rugged Auckland Islands, formed from the crumbling remains of two 12 million year old volcanoes are a beacon of life in the bleak southern ocean. Every summer the island's population explodes as regular visitors arrive - some to mate and produce their offspring, while others are there to prey on the newborns. A massive congregation of New Zealand sea lions forms on the sandy beach, and brawling males battle for mating rights, while females give birth. Beneath the waves, male giant spider crabs migrate from the depths to the islands coast to seek females and perform their bizarre breeding ritual. Yellow-eyed penguins, and other year round residents, must adapt to the new arrivals if they are to survive.

    Unseen Islands: Atlantic Arks, Season 1 | Episode 1

    Thousands of miles from the nearest anything, these islands scattered across all 7 seas from the Antarctic to the tropics are amongst the remotest places on earth. But life here isn't lonesome. They teem with life from huge penguin colonies to the world's richest coral reefs. Because many are so remote they have acted as laboratories of evolution shaping life in unexpected and dramatic ways. Thrushes that once fed on seeds have evolved a taste for meat. Turtles have become extreme navigators and seabirds nest on single islands and nowhere else in the world. These islands all have one thing in common, they are all British overseas territories. On this journey we'll travel the length of the South Atlantic, from the frozen wastelands of Antarctica to the equator, visiting islands unknown to most of the world.
