About Life

Life looks at the extraordinary ends to which animals and plants go in order to survive, and uncovers the strategies and extreme behaviour all living things have developed in order to continue to live and prosper.


The 10-part series starts with Challenges Of Life and shows extraordinary examples of feeding, hunting, courting and parenting behaviour from across the animal kingdom.

With investigation into the survival techniques of reptiles and amphibians, mammals, fish, birds, insects, hunters and hunted, creatures of the deep, plants and primates, Life is a comprehensive study of the natural world, complete with bar-raising filming techniques and jaw-dropping imagery.

As ever, Sir David Attenborough presides over some stunning, world-first footage, and travels the globe in search of incredible examples of survival.
