In this revolutionary new series, David Attenborough reveals the marvellous adaptability of the most successful group of animals on the planet. Using pioneering macroscopic 3D techniques, he explores in unparalleled detail the intricate, sophisticated behaviours of these fascinating creatures and the complexity of the environments they build and inhabit, in a world normally hidden from the human eye.
This six-part series tells the story of the prehistoric development of arthropods, how they turned carnivorous and began to develop weaponry, and reveals some of the most amazing creatures alive today.
