A typical British nature documentary, which is to say, a very good film, and one that mostly balances the "awwws" with the awesome.

A typically eye-catching, years-in-the-making chronicle of animal life that is tainted by the urge to anthropomorphize.

Another gorgeously shot document of nature's majesty, this one focusing on the life cycle-and interconnectedness-of all living creatures.

As much as Daniel Craig's narration can feel tacked-on, it's really secondary to the film's expert camerawork.

This BBC Earth animal-behaviour doco catches the sheer jaw-dropping mentalness of the creature kingdom round the globe.

Even if we can understand that the future of our planet depends on a multi-species sharing economy, the film doesn't always match up what it says with what it shows.
