From the moment they are born, every animal on the planet begins the same great and perilous journey – life. Told from the perspective of individual animals, this series follows the journey from birth to parenthood.
The journey of life is something we can all understand. Like us, animals have to overcome both the struggle to reach adulthood and the unpredictable challenges thrown at them by their environment, their enemies and even their own families.
Each episode of this captivating series focuses on one stage of life, starting with those crucial first few days and moving through the challenges of the grown up world – from power struggles to the search for a suitable mate – and finally parenthood where survival of their own offspring, their legacy, becomes life’s purpose. Every day these animals face triumph, tragedy, humour and joy.
Presented by Sir David Attenborough, Life Story brings their experience to the screens in minute detail, showcasing their strength and fascinating ingenuity and bringing the drama and tension of the natural world to life.
BBC Earth is on Starhub Channel 407.
