The Screen Guide

Discovered by European science a little over 200 years ago, the platypus was first thought to be a hoax - made from skins of different animals sewn together. Today we are on the verge of new discoveries about the life of this little-known creature. We'll journey with the people who are pushing the frontiers of knowledge - getting insights into the way these animals live and how they have their funny looking babies.
