Animal Super Senses: Sight
Sunday, 3 May 2015 New Series
Go beyond the limits of human perception to explore the extraordinary world of animal senses.
This new three-part documentary series takes a closer look at animal senses and explores the hidden world their senses can unlock. Find out how elephants can hear thunderstorms hundreds of miles away, how bees distinguish between complex pheromones, and why a bizarre deep sea arms race has forced an ocean giant to evolve the largest eye on our planet – the size of a human head!
Shot in a contemporary way and featuring contributions from biologist Patrick Aryee and physicist Helen Czerski, this series showcases some of the wildest habitats on Earth and gets up close to some enchanting wildlife.
The first episode of the series explores the extraordinary sense of sight in the animal world. We travel through the colours of the rainbow, across the spectrum of light our eyes can see, and beyond. Presenters Helen Czerski and Patrick Aryee reveal how caribou use UV light to avoid wolves, they discover how seeing in slow motion lets dragonflies make a kill in the blink of a human eye, and they show how one animal can see in pitch dark - without using its eyes.
A BBC/BBC America co-production. 3 x 50 minutes

News of the marriage between Ross (Aidan Turner) and Demelza (Eleanor Tomlinson) shocks Trenwith – with Charles’ (Warren Clarke) amusement at the union bringing on a fatal heart attack. On his death bed he asks Ross to look after Francis (Kyle Soller) who is drinking, gaming and whoring his family’s money away.
Verity (Ruby Bentall) visits Nampara and despite Demelza’s worry that she is too common for Verity, the two quickly become firm friends, and Verity teaches Demelza how to be a refined lady.
Wheal Leisure has still not hit copper and the money is running out. Ross turns to his investors, but finds they are unwilling to throw away good money after bad. They must hit copper soon or Wheal Leisure will have to close after Christmas.

There is nowhere else on Earth quite like Africa. Vast forests, mighty rivers, endless savannahs, the driest deserts – home to astonishing wildlife and a billion people. Griff Rhys Jones wants to explore it. And to meet Africa’s people and see its incredible landscapes, he’s taking to the continent’s trains.
In the first episode of this remarkable series, Griff begins a 1700 mile journey across North Africa in Morocco. In Marrakech he stocks up for his trip with items from the souk. He shares some sweet pastries with his fellow passengers, and discovers that one is a travelling salesman for Berber medicines.
In the ancient city of Fes, Griff enlists the help of possibly Morocco’s most eccentric guide to ensure he doesn’t get lost in the medieval streets before continuing his journey along the railway built by French colonialists.
The largest country in Africa boasts magnificent railway stations and hospitable, friendly people. On the train Griff meets a family heading to the capital Algiers for a holiday. After visiting Algiers he then ventures to the east of the country and the breathtaking city of Constantine, named after the Roman Emperor, before crossing into Tunisia.
From the capital Tunis Griff heads south, away from the Mediterranean and towards the edge of the Sahara Desert. For now this is the end of the line. It has been an exhilarating journey, and Griff has experienced some of the rich mix that gives North Africa its distinctive, exotic culture.
