The Life of Birds: To Fly or Not to Fly

David Attenborough presents a ten-part insight into the evolution and
behaviours of birds. In this first programme, computer graphics
recreate the period 150 million years ago when small, fast-running
dinosaurs evolved feathers and took to the air. In New Zealand, David
examines the environment required by birds which have survived without
recourse to flight, and enjoys a midnight encounter with a kiwi,
captured on a starlight-sensitive camera.
