David Attenborough and the BBC have a well-earned reputation
for producing some of the greatest nature programmes, but The Life of
Mammals could well be Attenborough's magnum opus. Much of the
footage shot for this series had never been seen before, and is presented
with the respect and reverence for the natural world that Attenborough has
made his trademark. It never ceases to surprise: the sight of a lion
taking down a wildebeest on the African savannah has almost become a
cliché of nature programmes, yet in The Life of Mammals the cameras
keep rolling and the viewer witnesses the fallen animal's herd coming to
its rescue and driving off the lion. It's a moving sight and just one of
many remarkable scenes.
