Wildlife on One programmes. The Water Walkers
First shown in 1981, this film explores a bizarre and fascinating miniature world - the surface of our ponds and streams. Almost totally self-contained, this is a world within a world, where the laws of physics take on new dimensions, water bends and surface tension becomes a fearful force dominating the lives of predators and prey. Startling photography by London Scientific Films reveals the lives of pond skaters, swamp spiders, water boatmen and whirligigs. Discover why water boatmen have hair tails and whirligigs don't collide.
Narrated by David Attenborough. Producer Pelham Aldrich-Blake

Captain William Bligh:
There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
