Spy In The Wild

Starts Monday October 22

Show Synopsis

In this astonishing innovative series, from the makers of Penguins - Spy in the Huddle, a team of life-like Spy Creatures go undercover to film love, intelligence, friendships and mischievous behaviour among some extraordinary animals.

How different are we to our animal cousins? Do they experience the same kind of emotion and intellect that we do? Meet the elephant aunts who act as midwives, the bowerbirds gathering trinkets to impress the ladies, the hippos having pedicures, the monkeys getting drunk and disorderly and chimpanzee policemen laying down the law. These moments, captured by a new generation of spy cameras, not only reveal a lot about animal behaviour, they also hint at how similar each beautiful form of life truly is.
