Is there safety in numbers?
Imagine being at the very heart of a swarm of bats, 20 million strong, or in the middle of a huge mass of migrating wildebeest — that is where this three-part series will take you. It unravels the action and explores the story behind these huge wildlife spectacles. The participation of every animal is explained while iconic footage is used to tell the story. Augmented by photo-realistic technology, some truly stunning angles and points of view are produced, relaying the action from the very heart of the event. Highlights include the ‘Bait Ball Bonanza’ — an annual food-fest, clearly visible from space, which attracts thousands of sharks, whales, seals and birds as they seek to gorge themselves on a gigantic shoal of sardines tens of miles long.
