A new 10-part series of Power of Nature, comprising individual four-minute films
which focus on some of the most spectacular places on Earth, screens from
Tuesday 14 January on bbc.com and BBC World News.
Sponsored by Nikon and using astonishing HD imagery, Power of Nature
explores the acute impact of some of the world’s animals on their habitats. From
the gardener elephants of the tropical rainforests to the sea otters of the North
Pacific, the series features beautiful natural imagery as well as interviews with
world-renowned scientists and biologists, explaining the significance of intricate
ecosystems that enable our planet to flourish.
“Viewers will see these animals and the worlds they inhabit in an entirely
different way. They will learn how animals are critical actors, shaping the health
and well-being of the human race. Putting these stories on bbc.com and BBC
World News underscores the importance of understanding these new, surprising
facts about our world,’ says Dr M Sanjayan, lead scientist with The Nature
Conservancy and contributor to the series.
Available on BBC News as short films, The Power of Nature series can also be
viewed online at www.bbc.com/powerofnature.
