In this new 3-part documentary series, Richard Hammond reveals secret animal abilities from the natural world, and discovers how those same animals have inspired a series of unlikely human inventions at the very frontiers of science.
Witness some of the world's greatest wildlife phenomena and natural wonders through the eyes of birds in this natural history series. Amazing sights from five continents will be revealed in a whole new light as the journeys of snow geese, cranes, falcons, albatross, eagles and other birds are documented using new, cutting edge filming techniques and state of the art spycams.
There 1,900 volcanoes worldwide which are considered to be active. Many are widely unknown, such as Mount Nyiragongo in the Democratic Republic of the Congo. At an altitude of 3500 meters a hot lava sea boils and bubbles at 1000 degrees Celsius. Every day this volcano spews out as much sulfur dioxide as all the other volcanoes on earth put together.
In the hidden depths of Australia's wild Southern Ocean a great white shark, 3m long and packed with nearly a tonne of muscle, is savagely attacked 100m below the sea's surface by a far larger and faster mystery predator. An electronic tracking device attached to the great white records a high-speed underwater chase nearly 600m deep before the shark and its tag are savagely devoured. Two weeks later, after being carried in the belly of the unknown killer, the still functioning tag is excreted and washed ashore, withholding clues that could reveal the identity of the shark's super predator.
Sir David Attenborough investigates why animals appear to have taken nature's gifts and stretched them to extreme limits, such as the giraffe, which has ended up with a super-stretched neck, and the chameleon, with a super stretchy tongue.
Brief look at what an earthquake looks like and its effect on the land and buildings. Activity: Story board.
Without warning, the earth can quiver, destroying towns and leaving entire regions crippled. Host and British adventurer Ben Fogle teams with earthquake expert Reggie Des Roches to examine three recent earthquakes: Haiti, Italy and Japan.

Tornadoes and hurricanes may hit closer to home as opposed to other natural disasters in recent years, as the U.S. Midwest has been ravaged by twisters while the Gulf Coast has experienced the most destructive and costly hurricanes in U.S. history. To test the effect of wind on humans, host Ben Fogle visits a specialised climate chamber to recreate the effect of wind at up to 120 mph.
