Earth's Seasonal Secrets

A show that celebrates the extraordinary nature of the four magnificent seasons on Planet Earth, and how animals and plants rise to the new challenges they bring.

In each episode, we visit a different season, each with its own magical and dramatic personality, and reveal how different animal characters must find their own extraordinary ways to make it through.

Through all the seasons, animals need to find enough to eat, find partners, raise their families, deal with the tumultuous weather and they have astonishing tricks to overcome what each season throws at them, and thrive.

The series is narrated by Sherlock star Andrew Scott.
