Quotes

Himself - Host: Ever since we arrived on this planet as a species, we've cut them down, dug them up, burnt them and poisoned them. Today we're doing so on a greater scale than ever... We destroy plants at our peril. Neither we nor any other animal can survive without them. The time has now come for us to cherish our green inheritance, not to pillage it - for without it, we will surely perish.

Amazing look into the alien world of plants
3 August 2010 | by (Maynooth, Ireland) – See all my reviews

They move. They hunt. They kill. They struggle for life just like us animals. It is all just on a slower timetable. Once speeded up to something our mind can grasp, we see the wonderful world of plants in all its glory. We are given a six-part series with the following components: Travelling, Growing, Flowering, The Social Struggle, Living Together and Surving. Attenborough is wonderful here. He shows us the struggle of plants to survive in a story that is full of extraordinary drama and breath-taking beauty. This and another of his great works, "Life on Earth", are among the best production and entertainment pieces I have ever seen.
