Life Story captures a number of filming feats as elephants, spiders, chimpanzees, polar bears, humming birds, and more are observed on a journey that is documented in six crucial stages: taking their first steps in the world, growing up, finding a home, gaining power, winning a mate, and succeeding as a parent. The series, distributed by BBC Home Entertainment, was shot in ultra-high definition 4k (ultra-HD), using stabilized camera technology – normally associated with drama filming – which allowed the production crews the freedom to move alongside the animals.
Over a period of four years, there were 78 separate shoots which included a five-week expedition into the far reaches of the Gobi desert, eight days spent crossing dangerous seas to reach the sub-Antarctic, and seven weeks trekking through the heart of the Congolese jungle.
