How we tell intimate stories...BBC

Our world may be very big, but sometimes it is the smallest stories that teach us the most. BBC Earth brings you three incredible videos where an innovative use of technology has captured the true magic of nature.

Did you know you can see colonies of grass cutter ants from space?
Producer Rupert Barrington explains how he managed to get closer than ever before to a nest of up to 5 million grass cutter ants.

A filming-first for the BBC Earth team is not the only example of innovation in natural history. Executive Producer Mike Gunton, gives a fascinating insight into the imagination of the male Vogelkop bowerbird.

Developing technology to capture the minuscule and the marvelous is one thing, but what happens when what you’re trying to film is located underneath eight feet of solid ice?
Producer Neil Lucas gives us an insight into the incredibly rewarding, but painstaking task of filming in these challenging conditions.

Armed with a passion for the natural world and the desire to communicate its incredible stories, BBC Earth filmmakers will continue to surprise and delight us for years to come.
