Earthflight: A Nature Special Presentation

Earthflight: A Nature Special Presentation
Wednesdays, at 8pm on CET
What would it be like to see the world from a bird’s perspective? To experience riding on the backs of bald eagles and snow geese or flying alongside a flock of brown pelicans as they scan and dive for fish in the ocean below. State-of-the-art technology and sophisticated camera techniques have now made it possible to do just that and more as EarthflightA Nature Special Presentation takes viewers on a breathtaking aerial adventure over six continents.
 
It took Earthflight series producer John Downer and his team four years to film more than 100 bird species in 40 different countries. Using strategically placed cameras, including tiny HD cameras placed on the backs of trained birds, this six-part series captures amazing viewpoints that have never been seen before.
