In telling the epic story of reptiles and amphibians — the most enduringly successful animals ever to walk on land — David Attenborough completes his overview of life on the planet. The very latest technology enables extraordinary and previously unseen behaviour to be captured in intimate detail, overturning the myth that cold-blooded life is slow, solitary and primitive and revealing these creatures to be as dramatic, social, sophisticated and passionate as warm-blooded animals. As with Life in the Undergrowth, this series will change the audience's perceptions forever — giving them a new, warm-hearted relationship with Life in Cold Blood.

|2||Closed CaptioningVideoLand Invaders||From steamy jungles to dry deserts amphibians have taken their first footsteps onto land using their bizarre life histories to break their ties with the water and invade the earth. David Attenborough delves into the lives of these soft skinned amphibians and finds marsupial frogs where the father carries his young in pouches and then gives birth, giant salamanders over a metre long that wrestle for territory and newts that display just like underwater birds of paradise.||56:50||£1.89||View in iTunes|

Their tender side is displayed in the sinuous courtship of kingsnakes and the water birth of 15 beautiful yellow anacondas.||57:15||£1.89||View in iTunes|

David Attenborough is a legend and all of his documentaries bring something new and unseen to TV. I bought this on dvd and some of the shots that go into this documentary are just brilliant. They spend there time on getting the perfect shot and it pays off.
I honesly believe everybody should see this series. Every episode is full of creatures that I could barely believe existed. Watch this, you won't regret it.
