The Bee-Team Narrated by David Attenborough
Neighbours in a Kenyan sandbank - 300 bee-eaters. At first sight, a colourful spectacle of birds living happily together. But look closer and you will find one of the most complex societies yet discovered in birds, a society in which group rape, nest robbery and child battering are everyday events.
This is the story of a team of five birds that join forces to bring up their chicks. Attacks by snakes and mongooses, a terrible food shortage - all this was predictable. What the bee team had not expected was the devious behaviour of one of their chicks.
