Unlocking Nature's Secrets: The Serengeti Rules:

#1 Post by MichaelG. » Sat Nov 16, 2019 3:10 pm

This extraordinarily good documentary is currently available on BBC iPlayer

Unlocking Nature's Secrets: The Serengeti Rules:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000b8p4

One of the most important yet untold science stories of our time, a tale with profound implications for the fate of life on our planet.

Beginning in the 1960s, a small band of young scientists headed out into the wilderness, driven by an insatiable curiosity about how nature works. Immersed in some of the most remote and spectacular places on earth - from the majestic Serengeti to the Amazon jungle, from the Arctic Ocean to Pacific tide pools – they discovered a single set of rules that govern all life.

Now in the twilight of their eminent careers, these five unsung heroes of modern ecology share the stories of their adventures, reveal how their pioneering work flipped our view of nature of its head, and give us a chance to reimagine the world as it could and should be.

Hi Michael,
that sounds very interesting! I tried to get access to it but after creating a BBC account I was told that I can only watch it in UK - were I am not.

But for UK residents it is probably quite interesting.

Thank you for this second source, but this secret seems to stay unlocked by me: "We're sorry, but this video is not available in your region due to rights restrictions." :(

Is there a way to hide one's origin?

It's apparently available on Amazon Prime video, to rent - $4.99, or buy - $5.99, if that helps anyone.
