Life Story takes us on the greatest of all adventures – the journey through life. It is a story that unites each of us with every animal on the planet, because we all set out on this journey from the moment we are born. Told from the perspective of individual animals, this series follows the journey from birth to parenthood. Every day these animals face triumph, tragedy, humor and joy. Each episode focuses on one stage of life starting with those crucial first few days and moving through the challenges of the grown-up world - from power struggles to the search for a suitable mate - and finally parenthood where survival of their own offspring, their legacy, becomes life's purpose.
