Secrets of Our Living Planet

Secrets of Our Living Planet is a four-part BBC documentary series presented by Chris Packham, showcasing the incredible ecosystems that make life on Earth possible. Why does a tiger in the Sunderbans swamp of Bangladesh need a crab? Why does a gecko in the whistling acacia grasslands of Kenya need a giraffe? Using beautifully shot scenes from all over the world, the series reveals the hidden wonder of the creatures that we share the planet with, and the intricate, clever and bizarre connections between the species, without which life just could not survive.
