A Portrait of the Earth by DAVID ATTENBOROUGH
A series of 12 programmes 7:The Sky Above
High above the earth's surface David Attenborough floats weightless, showing that without gravity the world would be a chaotic place. Seeds, spiders, sky-diving frogs, gliding squirrels, insects, birds and bats have all overcome the force of gravity to fly through the air.
