Snakes alive

The TV Guide - - News -

One of the se­quences fea­tured in the first episode of Planet Earth II took out the Bafta award for Best TV Mo­ment Of The Year. Filmed on the Gala­pa­gos Is­lands, it fea­tures a young marine iguana which must es­cape an on­slaught of deadly racer snakes the mo­ment they hatch from the sand. “Rarely has any real-life footage made the heart thump so hard in my chest as dur­ing this sub­limely edited five-minute se­quence (which may prompt many an anx­i­ety dream in years to come),” de­clared The Lon­don Tele­graph’s critic Ger­ard O’Donovan.
