Episode of Series “Wildlife on One”.
Two films narrated by David Attenborough from the BBC Wildlife on one series. “Birds of the Sun God” tells the fascinating story of the partnership between hummingbirds and plants, a partnership which has lasted three million years. “In Flight Movie” uses remarkable new filming techniques to enable us to take to the air ourselves. This unique film enables you to fly in the clouds with a flock of geese, look over the shoulder of a soaring buzzard or hedge hop with a speeding starling, revealing just how a bird’s design is shaped to the life it leads - in flight! Issued as a BBC wildlife special.
