‘Life In Colour’ will explore the many ways that animals use colour throughout their lives. Filming will take place across the globe, with particular emphasis on Australia.
The broadcaster said: ‘Colour plays a vital role in the daily interactions of many species, but the colour we can see tells only part of the story. Using new cameras built specifically for this series, ‘Life In Colour’ will reveal a world of colour normally invisible to human eyes.’
BBC Two Controller Patrick Holland commented: “Any series authored by Sir David is very special and this promises to be exceptional. I am looking forward to seeing the combination of innovative photography and rich analysis to explore the role that colour plays in animals’ lives.”
Tom McDonald, Head of Commissioning, Natural History and Specialist Factual, added: “ ‘Life In Colour’ promises to be a unique and original insight into the natural world. Deploying innovative new technology to reveal our world in new ways, I’m thrilled that we are working with Sir David on a series which promises spectacle and insight.”
