Join Springwatch’s Martin Hughes-Games as he follows the dedicated and inspirational individuals working to save some very special babies, nature’s miracle babies, who are the lifeline to preserving some of our planet’s most critically vulnerable species.

There’s great hope for the future of the rarest cat in the world, the Amur leopard. With only 35 left in the wild, the arrival of a litter of tiny cubs could help save this species from extinction. There’s a rollercoaster of emotions following the exhausting vigil of one very special giant, an Indian one horned rhino, who has her keepers on tenterhooks for days as she tries to deliver a baby as big as a man. And heartbreak turns into hard work for a dedicated team at Jersey Zoo. They have to become surrogate parents to a litter of tiny baby pied Tamarins, the rarest primate in South America, after they’re attacked by their mother. But will they make it through?

Nature's Miracle Babies is an intimate, yet ultimately uplifting series that touches all our emotions.

I absolutely adored those series describing the efforts to breed in captivity endangered animals and I recommend them warmly. Films are very well made, VERY interesting, the message is very optimistic and the cause defended (preserve endangered species from extinction) is a very great and pure one. The enthusiasm of the narrator is only equalled by the devotion and commitment of animal handlers, veterinarians and scientists shown in the four episodes. Without giving too much spoilers, here are some of the topics covered:

- breeding in captivity of pandas, gorillas, Amur leopards, koalas, wallabys and aye-aye lemurs
- caring about orphaned baby elephants
- trying to contain a deadly disease decimating Tasmanian devils
- evacuating the whole population of an endangered frog from island of Montserrat
- taking care of newborn tamarins rejected and attacked by their mother
- helping endangered kestrels to lay more eggs and raise more hatchlings by providing them with safe nests in wilderness

Without affecting in any way the five star ratings there is however one caveat that I would like to give - this show is not appropriate for young children, for two reasons: sex and violence. If you watch it in family, your young children can be treated to some very explicit images of copulating pandas and then even more torrid sex scene between gorillas... Even worse, in episode three there are some extremely shocking images of tasmanian devils suffering from a form of very virulent (and contagious!) cancer, which disfigures them HORRIBLY! The images of a baby tamarin mutilated by its mother are also very tough...

Unquestionably the best Nature series I have ever watched. It is easily worth twice the asking price and is a fitting tribute to all those completely dedicated, caring people who work ceaselessly saving endangered animal and bird species.
It is extremely interesting - funny, uplifting, heart-rending, heart-warming and with a huge "AH" factor. It could have been called Nature's Gorgeous Babies.
My only criticism is that there is hardly any information about the episodes.
However, highly recommended.
Absolutely marvellous.

I so enjoyed the program when shown on television here in Australia and thought it would make a lovely gift for my grandaughter's 14th birthday. So heartwarming to see such dedicated people in this world trying to protect and preserve these beautiful animals and birds, and the lengths they will go to. A delightful DVD which arrived promptly in time for the birthday.

This is a wonderful and uplifting series: fascinating, engaging, touching, heart-warming and at times upsetting.

I have to disagree with one of the other reviewers (Maciej 'Darth Maciek'), who mentions 'explicit' and 'torrid' sex scenes, also stating that (partly) for this reason the programme is not appropriate for young children. The series can be upsetting at times, though no more so than any other nature programme, and, unlike many of these, at least we don't actually see any violence or killing taking place. However, the 'sex scenes' are not 'explicit' or 'torrid' at all. The one involving gorillas is actually quite amusing and endearing, and surely it's better for children to be introduced to the whole idea of the dreaded 's-e-x' in its natural context rather than via the popular media, playground gossip or an awkward 'facts of life' lecture from embarrassed parents.

In short, this is a wonderful series, if a little upsetting at times, and thoroughly deserving of 5 stars.

Shows the real work being done to conserve animals in zoos/preserves rather than all the armchair activism floating around.
