Sun­day DAVID AT­TEN­BOR­OUGH’S RISE OF AN­I­MALS

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - PROGRAMS -

ABC1, 7.30pm

It’s the fi­nal episode in David At­ten­bor­ough’s far- reach­ing se­ries chart­ing the rise of back­boned an­i­mals – the ver­te­brates. Fo­cus­ing on mam­mals, he ex­plores how, in the wake of the ex­tinc­tion of di­nosaurs, they evolved from tiny noc­tur­nal for­est- dwellers to the dom­i­nant form of an­i­mal life on the planet. He starts with a visit to south­ern China, where one of the world’s ear­li­est mam­mals has been found. Later, At­ten­bor­ough ends his ex­plo­ration with a look in the mir­ror – well, at homo sapi­ens. No bones about it, the revered nat­u­ral­ist knows the world’s crea­tures like no­body else.
