Animal Super Senses: Sight - Ep 1 Of 3 
*This program contains hunting scenes that may concern some viewers*

Go beyond the limits of human perception to explore the extraordinary world of animal senses. This documentary series takes a closer look at animal senses and explores the hidden world their senses can unlock. Find out how elephants can hear thunderstorms hundreds of miles away, how bees distinguish between complex pheromones, and why a bizarre deep sea arms race has forced an ocean giant to evolve the largest eye on our planet - the size of a human head!

Shot in a contemporary way and featuring contributions from biologist Patrick Aryee and physicist Helen Czerski, this series showcases some of the wildest habitats on Earth and gets up close to some enchanting wildlife.

The first episode of the series explores the extraordinary sense of sight in the animal world. We travel through the colours of the rainbow, across the spectrum of light our eyes can see, and beyond. Presenters Helen Czerski and Patrick Aryee reveal how caribou use UV light to avoid wolves, they discover how seeing in slow motion lets dragonflies make a kill in the blink of a human eye, and they show how one animal can see in pitch dark - without using its eyes.
