    I would love to use this in my high school biology classroom. Are there any supplement materials avaiable to use with it? Or has PBS developed any lesson plans that use this as a resource? I thoroughly enjoyed this show last Sunday. Thanks for airing it again.

    A wonder of God is the fig,
    Although it’s not very big.
    In the vast web of life,
    With all of its strife,
    It performs it’s marvelous gig!

  • JohnAtl

    This is one of, if not the best Nature documentary I’ve seen.
    Evolution has given us such a grand and wonderful world!

  • Dylan

    I’ve seen many nature shows in my life, and this one is certainly among the most beautiful. The cinematography and storytelling was outstanding. As close as I’ve ever come to crying for an insect.
