If we and the rest of the backboned animals were to disappear overnight, the rest of the world would get on pretty well. But if they were to disappear, the land's ecosystems would collapse. The soil would lose its fertility. Many of the plants would no longer be pollinated. Lots of animals, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals would have nothing to eat.

This is an ingenious documentary about creatures of this world we often forget exist. It features amazing camera work, incredibly realistic, life like colours, mesmerizing scenes, good selection of music and even a sort of a storyline like progression for each episode that make this mini TV series by far the best wildlife documentary I have ever seen. David Attenborough doesn't just make us clearly understand the complexities of life in general, but also relates many things that we witness to human experience. Struggle, formation of societies, communication and continuity of life are amongst the main ideas he presents, but espionage, war, theft, deceit and even anarchy, and breakdown of order are also present. He really does go far and wide to present us with an extremely rich experience of the miniature world beneath our feet. Such an incredible amount of footage from all over the world, shot with such an incredible skill left me amazed. I couldn't wait to get my hands on more of his movies, just to see what else I could learn from such an interesting man and definitely a great teacher.
10/10 for a perfect cinematographic creation.
