Abstract:

Every year, spectacular seasons transform our planet. These beautiful stand alone films explore the unique opportunities and challenges posed by each season. Spring brings new life, but it's also a dash to wake up and get ahead of everyone else. Summer is a time of long days and glorious abundance. But the living isn't always easy when the temperatures rise. Autumn brings the world's most spectacular transformations. It's also the last chance to breed, to grow up, to stock up before the cold returns. And during winter – the most magical, dramatic season of all – animals find inventive ways to survive. Andrew Scott narrates a special programme which celebrates winter and explores how animals and plants rise to the challenges it brings. With their world encased in snow and ice, animals must find the most inventive ways to survive and even benefit from the cold. Caribou become ice road travellers as it gets slippery underfoot, stoats make their own fur bedding, and snow monkeys find a warm bath. Emperor penguins are built for the cold weather, but even they must find their own tricks to endure the world's most savage winter.
