The Secret of Life on Earth begins where life apparently began three-and-a-half billion years ago. As if peering into a time capsule, witness some of the key developments in plants that made possible the web of life - since evolved and now endangered. Brilliant use of micro, macro and time-lapse photography delivers stunning close-ups of special relationships between plants and animals: barnacles feeding, microscopic plankton, tiny grasses flowering, and pollinators at work. The interdependence between plants and animals is portrayed as an unwritten "green" contract.
