The Trials of Life

I’ve been watching the first few episodes of Planet Earth II through iTunes and, as usual, I’m staggered by the scenes the BBC have been able to capture. In episode 2, where the bears are scratching their backs, that had my 13 month old son laughing. They are unparalleled.

To my surprise, the BBC series that got me hooked on natural history is available on iTunes: The Trials of Life. 12 (no where near close to HD) episodes that were originally given to me on VHS as a gift over 25 years ago that still stick with me to this day. They must have been good.
