BBCnews is carrying this report on what should be a fascinating new series from naturalist David Attenborough:

"In the past, in order to get close to something, you had to pour light on it; so much so you were at risk of frying the thing - and you certainly inhibited natural behaviour," Sir David said.

"We've now got such sensitive electronic cameras that we don't need that amount of light, and we've also got tiny, tiny lenses; so we can get up close and tight, and then you see mind-blowing things."

Since Discovery tends to get these shows after their UK premiere, here's to hoping it arrives sooner rather than later!
