Kingdom of Plants

Using the latest time-lapse and macro photography filming techniques, David Attenborough traces the 'kingdom of plants' 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 at Kew. This spectacular adventure is so immersive and compelling it has the capacity to amaze even the least green-fingered! 3 episodes.
