The earth is home to more than 30 million different animals and plants – every single one in its own fight for survival. From the makers of  PLANET EARTH and narrated by global media leader Oprah Winfrey, the epic television series LIFE is the definitive exploration of our planet’s living things and their spectacular, bizarre and fascinating behaviors.

More than four years in the making, with over 3,000 days of filming in the field by 70 camerapersons, LIFE spans every continent and every habitat. This episode will showcase the exhaustive and remarkable efforts by the LIFE filmmaking team to bring the breathtaking images of intimate animal and plant behavior to the screen. The latest in HD filmmaking techniques capture never-before-seen images while ensuring that natural behavior was not disturbed. Ingenious new cameras and filming platforms were invented for the series, including a “yogi cam,” which allowed a camera to track smoothly alongside migrating reindeer and elephants, and a “flying” camera that used intricate cable rigging to provide a “butterfly-eye” perspective of hundreds of thousands of Monarch butterflies in Mexico.
