"Brilliant series"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Great for viewing and teaching purposes. Children get to see in detail so much that the naked eye misses. Engaging.

"Excellent Series"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

As with all of David Attenborough's se­ries productions, this Life in the Undergrowth is professionally done, carefully filmed and gives the viewer a very interesting and informative insight into the tiny insects that live among us.

"I just adore Sir David Attenborough!"
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This documentary is fantastic! Takes you into another world, and helps one to realise that all creatures no matter how small are important to this beautiful planet we live on. Highly recommend :-)

"The Best"
5 stars"

Its been said already that I think this series is quite simply the best. Amazing camera shots, easy to folllow (though stilll detailed) information and of course the calm easy-listening voice of Mr. Attenborough. I have seen this series three times now and every time I was still hugely intrigued. I think the only thing that could be made better about the series would be if the BBC re-released this on a blu-ray disc but high definition or not, the shots are still spectacular.


In Life in the Undergrowth, David Attenborough reveals a secret universe that is teeming with life and is all around us, yet we never see it.

It is the world of the very small, and it is a world of sex, drugs and violence. Here David shows us not just bugs, beetles and creepy-crawlies, but scorpions and centipedes, mites and mantids, spiders and dragonflies. And not just life in the undergrowth, but the dramatic battles between predator and prey that are happening in the corner of your living room and in your larder. See magnificent spectacles: swarming antler moths; millions of desert locusts; a mountain of locusts. For every pound of humans on Earth, there are 300 pounds of insects.
