nat­u­ral World / 8.00pm / BBC1

sir david at­ten­bor­ough turns his at­ten­tion to the crea­tures liv­ing on bustling coral reefs. One of our favourite se­quences sees a tur­tle hav­ing a spa day, ly­ing back bliss­fully while smaller fish kindly re­move its dead skin and par­a­sites. Mean­while, a cute sad­dle­back clown­fish has to drag a co­conut shell along the seabed to give his mate a safe place to lay her eggs. Com­pe­ti­tion for food is fierce on the reef and, while a broad­club cut­tle­fish changes its skin pat­tern re­peat­edly to hyp­no­tise its prey, a canny coral grouper teams up with an oc­to­pus to nab a meal. More wor­ry­ingly, the episode also looks at how ris­ing tem­per­a­tures are caus­ing an in­crease in coral bleach­ing.
