David Attenborough revisits the Great Barrier Reef after nearly 60 years. His visit takes him from the most exposed part of the reef as well as down to 300m below the surface discovering corals never seen before.
Famous naturalist David Attenborough explains the rise and fall of pterosaurs, mistakenly known as flying dinosaurs. He also flies a glider to show how big the Quetzalcoatlus, at the time the largest known pterosaur species, really was.
This series of three episodes is very distinct from the famous BBC nature documentaries. It depicts the story of how life developed, and therefore also uses animations. It is amazing to see how life developed such things as being able to move around and sexual reproduction. To me, fossils always seemed boring pieces of stone. But in this series, David Attenborough travels the world to show places and fossils that demonstrate pivotal developments in the early evolution of life.
After you've seen this, all other nature documentaries that depict the world's current nature may feel like merely portraying an aftermath of the journey this documentary takes us on. All life's current wonders become but a small moment in time in an evolution that has been going on for millions of years and in which the real leaps forward were taken long before life even came to land.
