Secrets Of Nature
UK 1926 | Black & white | 200 mins | Cert Exempt | Documentary
This pioneering series exploring animal, plant and insect life, made wondrous worlds and natural processes visible for the first time: sweet peas unfurl in the sunlight, white owls swoop in on their prey, sea life lurks on the ocean floor and moths patiently spin their cocoons. These entertaining and absorbing films developed groundbreaking techniques of time-lapse, microscopic and underwater cinematography, paving the way for the natural history programmes that we know and love today.
