Earthflight - Episode 2 Preview Clips

John Downer Productions, the makers of the series have released new preview clips from Earthflight. The second episode of the stunning new BBC wildlife documentary, narrated by David Tennant, focuses on the continent of Africa. The BBC synopsis reads:

Fly over Africa on the back of a vulture and see the most animal-packed continent with fresh eyes. Arrow-dive with cape gannets among sharks, dolphins and whales as they join the great sardine run. Soar with fish eagles as they discover an S-shaped living island comprised entirely of flamingos, and join them on a spectacular hunt. Fly with kelp gulls as they study the hunting behaviour of the greatest underwater predator of all: the great white shark.
On the wings of eagles, fly through the mist-filled Victoria Falls and dive for fish in the mighty Zambezi. Circle with vultures high above the Serengeti as they watch the drama of the wildebeest migration below, and discover what happens when this canny scavenger suddenly becomes prey.
Among toxic soda lakes, find out what it is like to be a flamingo, vulnerable to every predator on the continent, including baboons and hyenas. Join these flamingos as they take part in one of the most beautiful dances in the bird world.
This is Africa as never seen before - from the wings of birds.

Episode two of Earthflight can be seen at 8pm on BBC1 and BBC1 HD tonight (Thursday 5th January)
