Wild Kingdom
Witness the beauty of Britain's seasonal rhythms in this spectacular three-part series. Filmed over the course of one year, Wild Kingdom offers a fresh perspective on Britain’s natural world. Time-lapse photography illustrates how the landscape is changing minute by minute, day by day, month by month - from a waterfall freezing solid to an entire hillside of heather bursting with colour. Animated ‘chlorophyll maps’ pinpoint the places where the first green shoots start to grow in spring and the last leaves fall in autumn, while slow-motion techniques capture magical moments, like owls hunting in the snow and the violent battles between sika deer. Simply stunning.
