Life Story BBC1, 9pm

Macclesfield Express - - TVWEEK -

Nat­u­ral­ist David At­ten­bor­ough doc­u­ments the univer­sal story that unites hu­man­ity with ev­ery other an­i­mal on the planet – the jour­ney through life, and the goal to con­tinue the blood­line through off­spring. This edi­tion fo­cuses on the first hur­dle any an­i­mal will face, sur­viv­ing in­fancy. Cam­eras follow flight­less bar­na­cle goose chicks as they strive to find food, leap­ing 400ft down a cliff from the ledge where they hatched. Mean­while, in New Zealand, young fur seals have stum­bled across a safe haven in which they can learn how to avoid preda­tors.
