DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Friday - SE­CRETS OF OUR LIV­ING PLANET, SBS One, 7.30pm

ARE there any se­crets of our liv­ing planet left? Sure there are. Such as what hap­pened to Cuba Good­ing Jr’s ca­reer? No word from na­ture pho­tog­ra­pher Chris Pack­ham on that, but he does dis­cuss ni­tro­gen (stay with me . . .). And while he tends to start sen­tences with things such as ‘‘ The really great thing about grass . . .’’ you will be amazed by the an­i­mals. (His en­counter with rhi­nos — fan­tas­tic). The an­gle tonight is the in­cred­i­ble and un­likely con­nec­tions an­i­mals have made to sur­vive. The gi­raffe and the dwarf gecko, for in­stance. Be­cause, with 10 mil­lion species on Earth, no­body can make it alone.
