Planet Earth: Caves
Planet Earth: Caves 
Planet Earth is a BBC production with five episodes in the first series, and a second series to follow in 2007. Each episode examines a range of environments, focussing on key species or relationships in each habitat, the challenges they face, the behaviours they exhibit and the adaptations that enable them to survive. Recent advances in photography are used to achieve some spectacular 'first sights' - in particular, stabilized aerial photography gives us remarkable views of migrating animals and the techniques used by their predators to hunt them.

The Caves episode begins dramatically as a man hurls himself into the void of the Cave of Swallows in Mexico. We soon realize that he is a base jumper and we watch as he and his friends parachute down into the largest cave shaft in the world, 400 metres deep. Caves are one of the least explored places on Earth and we rarely venture deep into them. If we do, we find that many animals and organisms have made their home in the dark.

The series is suitable for middle secondary students studying Science and SOSE/HSIE, and for senior secondary students of Biology, Environmental Science and Geography.
