Synopsis

If you want to know who David Attenborough styled himself on, look no further than this groundbreaking series of British short films about the natural world, filmed between 1922 and 1933. Masterminded by natural historian and cinematographer Percy Smith, who filmed much of the footage in his back garden and producer-director Mary Field, the series pioneered new techniques of filmmaking - including time lapse, microscopic and underwater photography. From beautifully unfurling pea blossoms to killer vines and aphid attacks, all overseen with lively narration, this collection is a window onto a golden age of nature documentary.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
