Jakso 1. A stunning and wondrous series combining state-of-the-art technology and sophisticated techniques to show the world from an amazing aerial perspective. Each episode explores a different continent, with birds providing a dramatic narrative of their journeys across it. In North America, snow geese and bald eagles struggle from the Gulf of Mexico to Canada. In Europe, grey cranes dodge galloping horses of the Camargue and barnacle geese get lost over London. In South America, the condor and brightly coloured macaws travel through mountains and rainforest. Other episodes take in the astounding landscapes of Africa, Asia and Australia. Using an array of devices - onboard cameras, drones and birds trained to fly right alongside microlights - the series takes us over the planet's most incredible landscapes and wildlife spectacles and reveals what it's like to fly like a bird. Finally, episode six shows how this thrilling series was made and the close relationships between the birds and team who made it.

There'll be amazing turtles and beautiful snakes, red pandas in the bamboo, giant salamanders as long as Nigel is tall, and rare green peacocks, the inspiration for China's famous Peacock Dance.
