It’s nice to see Ten continue it’s strategy to offer an alternative to Reality TV.
Filling the gap left by David Attenborough will be the 3 part series Hidden Kingdoms narrated by Stephen Fry.
Imagine what it is like to be shrunk down and immersed in a magical world of fantastical creatures living incredible, action-packed lives. With a cast of miniature marvels all less than a foot in size, these superheroes may be small but they pack a punch way above their weight. Chipmunks, elephant shrews, marmosets, scorpion mice, even giant rhinoceros beetles all face drama on a different scale – when you are this small rain drops fall like meteorites and a breeze feels like a tornado.
Narrated by Stephen Fry, this is the story of two young animals forced to grow up fast. In Africa’s savannah, a baby elephant shrew learns how speed is the secret to survival amongst the largest animals on Earth; and in America, a young grasshopper mouse confronts the Wild West’s deadliest creatures to stake a claim of his own.
