Overview

Take a trip through an amazing universe without even stepping off of the ground as host David Attenborough explores the lives of the planet's most fascinating insects in a documentary that utilizes advanced technology to prove that in the wondrous world of nature, size is but a matter of perspective. From swarms of desert locusts to living, breathing mountains comprised entirely of cockroaches, these worlds are often a strange combination of the bizarre and sublime. In addition to offering a closer look at these fascinating microscopic wonders themselves, Attenborough and filmmakers also explore the lives and habits of the insect world in a manner never before available to filmmakers.
