Get breathtakingly close to the planet's six most spectacular natural events and the powerful wildlife stories behind them. Narrated by David Attenborough, Nature's Great Events presents wildlife spectacles of epic proportions as well as more intimate, rarely seen moments. From the frozen Arctic wastelands to the blazing heat of the African plains, from the flooded Amazon forests to the caves of South-East Asia, each episode reveals the greatest sights, sounds and dramas of the animal world. The six-part series charts the effects of global climatic phenomena which have the power to transform entire landscapes, drawing in thousands of animals and determining their fate. Each episode is set in a different part of the world and demonstrates how immense natural forces, often starting thousands of miles away, drive a chain reaction that culminates in a spectacular wildlife event. The first episode showcases the seasonal wonder of the Arctic - the great melt. The summer sun melts nearly seven million square kilometres of ice revealing an entirely different landscape and providing a window of opportunity for many animals to breed and feed. Follow a mother polar bear and her cub as they make their first journey onto the sea ice in search of their favourite prey - ringed seals. Groups of Arctic whales - the elusive narwhals - are filmed for the first time using aerial cameras as they head north to feeding grounds, travelling along giant cracks in the ice. The beluga whales provide one of the most bizarre summer spectacles - hundreds gather in the river shallows to rub themselves on smooth pebbles, whistling as they do so. This exfoliating action allows them to moult their year-old skin.
