I stay awake on a cliff top watching a nest of Barnacle Geese... will the chicks jump? Gordon sleeps by his camera waiting to film. We should have plenty of warning but will the night work out how we planned?
Paul Williams and Lasse Ostevold discover Barnacle Geese nests on a very cold day on Svalbard.
I and Lasse Ostevold search high and low for Barnacle Geese nests in a Svalbard canyon.

The last programmes will be on iPlayer for a few more days so if you haven’t managed to watch I'd encourage anyone with an interest in British Wildlife to watch a couple of episodes: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/
The website http://www.bbc.co.uk/springwatch/ is also a world apart from its previous incarnations, flash, easy, and with lots of clickability. Its message boards have really been buzzing and its immediate approach to British wildlife and its interactivity seem "to reach parts" that many other programmes just don’t. eg. see this heartwarming message called "Springwatch Saved My Life" http://www.bbc.co.uk/dna/mbsn/F10211074?thread=5563319

Should we really be scared of the Komodo dragon? Awesome scenes captured for the upcoming BBC series "Life"
"The scent of blood, carried on the air, is caught by more of these monsters lurking in the vicinity and they converge on this act of prehistoric carnage. Before long, 20 lizards, most of them heavier than a fullgrown man, are indulging in an orgy of death and gluttony."
The scene sounds as if it is from Jurassic Park. In fact, it is one of the most extraordinary moments of life in the wild yet captured on camera, and will be shown next year as part of the BBC's major new series, Life, from its Natural History Unit.
