In this sensational series, shot over the course of a year, Sir David Attenborough explores the lives of plants and their fascinating world, from the most bizarre to the most beautiful. Using beautifully shot footage to illustrate his own inimitable narrative style, David traces them from their beginnings on land to their vital place in nature today, exposing new revelations along the way. He moves from our time scale to theirs, revealing the true nature of plants as creatures that are every bit as dynamic and aggressive as animals.

And he does all this in one unique place, a microcosm of the whole plant world where some 90% of all known plant species are represented: The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. This spectacular adventure through the Kingdom of Plants is so immersive and compelling it has the capacity to amaze even the least greenfingered.

This documentary was shot in 3D, and the 3D version is available on Blu-Ray. Please note that you require a 3D TV and Blu-Ray player to play this. The DVD was shot in 2D and can be played on regular monitors.
