One Life review

A cunning dolphin plan to force fish above water; snow monkeys guarding hot springs; a Komodo dragon facing off against a water buffalo…

This BBC Earth animal-behaviour doco catches the sheer jaw-dropping mentalness of the creature kingdom round the globe.

It’s as much a glossily packaged celebration of human-tech finesse as it is about animal ingenuity. Colour-drenched close-ups taken with high-speed cams are the key to its wow factor.

Daniel Craig makes a decent fist of the narration. But you could also do without its gush about the “incredible journey” all beings on the planet share.
