TONIGHT: Life in Cold Blood 'Land Invaders' with David Attenborough

David Attenborough delves into the extraordinary and intimate lives of the soft skinned amphibians and finds marsupial frogs where the father carries his young in pouches and then gives birth, giant salamanders over a metre long that wrestle for territory and newts that display just like underwater birds of paradise. From steamy jungles to dry deserts amphibians have taken their first footsteps onto land using their bizarre life histories to break their ties with the water and invade the earth.

"Reptiles and amphibians are thought of as slow, dim-witted and primitive," says David Attenborough in this the start of the final chapter of his Life on Earth saga. However they can also be, as this beautifully conceived (and presented) programme shows, affectionate and sophisticated." Daily Teleeraph

"It is effortless, intriguing and utterly sublime: TV that entertains & educates with painless ease." Observer.

"Here is the mythic presenter cosying up to frogs, alligators and iguanas, captured by the finest wildlife photography in the world. Where does the BBC go from here?" Times
