Hidden Kingdoms is an innovative new series from the BBC's Natural History unit. For the first time it takes the viewer into a unique and unexplored miniature world, immersing you into the action-packed lives of the planet's smaller animals.
The films are based in six of the planet's most iconic landscapes; the open plains of Africa's savannah, Arizona's desert, the forests of Borneo, the woodlands of north America and the urban jungles of Rio & Tokyo.
From chipmunks to beetles from marmosets to elephant shrews, these are animals who live life at an intensity it's hard to imagine. They hunt food, but are themselves hunted, they face the forces of the world that, to them, can be catastrophic. When you are just a few inches tall, raindrops can feel like meteorites, dust stings like gravel, a sudden gust of wind feels like a tornado.
This is a world that has been waiting to be explored – the challenges our planet's mini creatures face are daunting, their solutions are always surprising and often defy belief. Prepare to be amazed, entertained and fascinated by the world's Hidden Kingdoms.
