Natural History programming is a real jewel in the crown of the BBC's programming and this breathtaking programme is a superb example. Following a sett of badgers through the year, the programme documents their movements both above the ground and below. The twists and turns of their fortune as they endure hardships and enjoy bounties throughout the year is movingly portrayed, as is the struggle for dominance between the males of the family (which includes one fight scene filmed underground which is as dramatic and memorable as any you're likely to see in a wildlife documentary). The footage from above the ground is superb; the footage from below the ground is simply unbelievable and certainly unique. David Attenborough's superb narration, interesting and well-informed, offers a final stamp of authority to the film. If you're interested in nature, you'll love this - it's a real treat.
