Despite sibling rivalry and murder, this tale of bees is just not buzzy enough

In a harsh landscape of barren plains, twisted forests, mighty peaks and soaring eagles, two beautiful princesses are born. Twin sisters, one of whom will become queen and reign supreme. She will command an army of devoted soldiers who will unleash terror across the land. They will take on enormous fire-wielding foes in order to defend their queen and her precious hoard of liquid gold. The other princess will die. Only one survives. Today they must fight, to the death …

The new season of Game of Thrones? I wish. No, you have to wait until Monday for that, I'm afraid. This, my friends, is Natural World: Queen of the Savannah – The Honeybee (BBC2).
