The bee is the most studied creature on the planet after man, and down the ages this insect and its honey have been harnessed by doctors, philosophers, scientists, politicians, artists, writers and architects as both metaphor and material. Also uncovered are the mysterious ways of bees - how they can make up to 24,000 journeys to produce a pound of honey, with each bee producing a teaspoonful in a lifetime. The sinister side of bees - such as the savage, untamed energy of the swarms of African bees that sweep through America - is not ignored.
