The Private Life of Plants – BBC Timelapse

David Attenborough documentary series exploring the life cycle of plants. A study of the growth, movement, reproduction and survival.

The series utilises time-lapse sequences extensively in order to grant insights that would otherwise be almost impossible. Plants live on a different time scale, and even though their life is highly complex and often surprising, most of it is invisible to humans unless events that happen over months or even years are shown within seconds.
