Summary "Each programme in this six-part series focuses on one of the crucial stages through which every plant must pass if it is to survive: - travelling, growing and flowering ; struggling with one another; creating alliances with other organisms both plant and animal; and evolving complex ways of surviving in the earth's most ferociously hostile environments ... Attenborough and his team travelled to all corners of the globe, from the tropical jungles of Borneo to the harsh deserts of Africa, from the high mountains to the thickest swamps. Using time-lapse photography and state-of-the-art techniques specially developed for this series, he shows us plant life in action as it has never been seen before."--Container
