The natural world

The Natural History Unit has been making ground-breaking wildlife documentaries for more than 50 years, capturing some of the most mesmerising moments in the natural world on film, many for the first time.

Over the years we have seen the power and agility of a breaching great white shark, Sir David Attenborough get close to chimpanzees like never before and witnessed the thrills and frustrations of filming tigers in the wild. All ready for you to watch again.

Whether you are fascinated by fearless lions, in awe of enormous whales or dote on delicate bluebells take the time to explore all our animals and plants and you may stumble upon a few gems you've never even heard of.
