Growing Up Wild: Natural World
For animals growing up is a real adventure, but finding food, avoiding predators and making friends doesn't always come naturally, so they need a little parental guidance to help them learn and hone the skills that will enable them to survive on their own. David Tennant narrates this documentary following the trials and tribulations of young animals all over the world as they prepare to leave home.
Produced by Sally Thomson.
