Yesterday +1: The Great British Year
Documentary following British wildlife through the seasons, beginning on New Year's Day, with the landscape in the grip of winter. Time-lapse photography shows a magical country shrouded in frost and swirling mist, while water becomes the enemy as the creatures must cope with ice. Red squirrels resort to subterfuge, kites track a farmer's plough to get at the worms beneath the frost, and as winter fades adders bask in the sun and the woodland floor erupts with snowdrops.
Documentary following British wildlife through the seasons. Spring marks a series of beginnings, as trees explode with blossom and mornings fill with the chorus of birdsong. Long-tailed tits frantically build nests, a stoat mother hunts rabbits to feed her playful young, while in the oceans, seahorses sway to a graceful courtship dance. As spring becomes summer, guillemot chicks leap from their cliffs to begin life at sea. Narrated by Joseph Fiennes.
