A natural history in 13 parts by David Attenborough
The story of life from the first primitive cells to the plants and animals that now live around us. 9: The Rise of the Mammals
The mammals have proved to be one of the most adaptable products of evolution. Their ancestry can be traced back nearly 200 million years to the beginning of the dinosaur era when the first furry warm-blooded creatures scurried around the forest floor at night while the mighty reptiles slept.
As time went by, female mammals evolved ways of keeping their babies warm and nourished. Early ones may have laid eggs like the platypus does today. Later forms evolved pouches, placentas ana milk-producing organs and so provided for their young more comprehensively than any other kind of creature.

Millions of years ago, generations of living creatures died and were buried, then crushed among the rocks. Now their remains are brought up from deep under the sea and fire our machines.
The Brent Delta is but one of 40 platforms between the Shetlands and Norway which reap this black liquid harvest. It is a strange and eerie world: the night sky glows bright orange; men work on deck sweltering in tropical warmth, but surrounded by a sub-Arctic sea; 300 miles from any city, commuters shuttle daily to and from their work on flying buses.
Yet every activity of every one of the thousands of men confined to this unreal and dreamlike world is directed to one end alone: to get oil and gas out and so make money. Their success or failure affects not only their company's profits, but all our pockets too. Narrator IAIN CUTHBERTSON
