In filming this series the Life Story team captured rare and extreme behaviours, some never recorded before, and they employed new technology to film behaviour in novel ways: A Barnacle Goose chick’s death-defying leap 400 feet down a cliff; the moving story of an adult humpback whale blowing bubbles to protect a calf from shark attack; the Long-eared jerboa surviving its first night alone in the Gobi desert – a creature so rare it’s never been filmed in the wild before. New technology floated a camera around a meerkat as it learned how to capture a scorpion.
