TV: Africa

Peerless they may be, but the BBC's Natural History Unit don't half make things hard for themselves. Africa, which continues this week, has been four years in the making and, as some of the end-of-episode Eye To Eye shorts show, creating it was an arduous and at times heartbreaking process; particularly in the filming of the death of an elephant calf in the second episode of the series. The result, though, is a programme fully deserving of the HD treatment and containing some truly gawk-worthy scenes, from a bruising, slow-motion battle between two giraffes to footage of the bizarre, prehistoric-looking shoebill bird. Catch up with the series in full over on the iPlayer.
