Humans are always trying to be better, brighter, faster, stronger, tougher. It's one of the things that makes us human. But nature has spent three and a half billion years producing ingenious answers to life's questions. So a lot of the problems we're trying to solve.....have already been solved - by evolution.
Nature is truly miraculous and in this exciting series Richard Hammond sets out to demonstrate exactly that, by investigating the weird and wonderful engineering solutions that can be found by studying the animal kingdom.
Elephants, giraffes, owls, vultures, cuttlefish, hagfish - these are just some of the animals tested in a series of compelling experiments. Ultra-high-speed, super-microscopic and ultra-violet photography help reveal the inspiration for a series of unlikely human inventions at the very forefront of science.
