Actor: David Attenborough

In The Private Life Of Plants, David Attenborough takes us on a guided tour through the secret world of plants, to see things no unaided eye could witness. He shows us the struggles of plants to survive in a story that is full of extraordinary drama and breath-taking beauty.
Each programme in this six-part series focuses on one of the crucial stages through which every plant must pass if it is to survive: travelling, growing and flowering; struggling with one another; creating alliances with other organisms both plant and animal; and evolving complex ways of surviving in the earth's most ferociously hostile environments.

Truly exceptional! The time lapse photography is stunning and eye opening, even to someone in the plant science field.

Watched with Disc 2. Some excellent time lapse photography of plants growing & flowers blooming. Covered plants from all over the world as well as fungi & underwater corals. Found out that Victoria's Mountain Ash trees are one of the tallest trees in the world!
