Synopsis Colour makes our world a beautiful place to live in. But there is so much more to it than beauty. In fact, colour is intimately connected to almost every story nature has to tell. It is the means by which animals communicate and collaborate and even the language of life and death in the natural world. Attenborough’s Life in Colour will be a thrilling visual feast, full of revelation, fascination and compelling storytelling. Packed with innovation and new camera technology developed just for this series, it will open our eyes to a new realm of life on Earth.
