Review

More mini-miracles with David Attenborough. Marvel, open-mouthed, at the industry of a tailor bird as it sews together a cosy pocket of leaves, or at the properties of, and scientific potential for, spider’s silk, one of nature’s toughest materials.

These hand-picked Curiosities are every bit as astounding as a really good magic trick.

Summary

David Attenborough examines creatures that spin and weave, contemplating the history of silk production and its romantic origins in China.
