The Incredible Journey of the Butterflies ~ Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays

Every year 100 million monarch butterflies set off on an incredible journey across North America. These beautiful creatures fly 2,000 miles to reach their remote destination: a tiny area high in the mountains of Mexico. Shot in stunning detail, NOVA flies along with the monarchs, a scientific marvel locked in an inspiring struggle for survival.

 

Hummingbirds: Magic in the Air ~ Tuesdays & Sundays

Hummingbirds represent one of nature’s most interesting paradoxes – they are the tiniest of bird, yet they qualify as some of the toughest and most energetic creatures on the planet. Scientists are making great breakthroughs in hummingbird biology which makes this a perfect time to focus on these shimmering jewels of the natural world. High definition, high speed footage helps us to understand the world of hummingbirds as we never have before.

 

Bees: Tales from the Hive ~ Thursdays & Saturdays

Amazing up-close footage filmed with specially developed macro lenses brings you the most intimate,   spectacular portrayal of a working bee colony ever filmed. See a high speed mid-air “wedding flight” of a drone and his queen. Learn how a bee colony defends itself from honey loving bears. Did you know it takes nectar from 10 million flowers to create a single liter of honey? Join us to find out the secret world of bees!
