Nature of Things: Bee Talker
Inside the honey-lined beehive, the Queen Bee seems to magically direct tens of thousands of her worker offspring. But how do they know what they’re doing? And why? This fascinating documentary explores the perfectly constructed, architecturally complex structure that has remained virtually unchanged for all of known time, the beehive. With the help of a high definition camera, viewers get up-close and personal with these industrious insects. In Bee Talker: The Secret World Of Bees, we meet one of the world’s greatest bee behaviorists, Dr. Mark Winston, who looks beyond the biology of the creatures to show us that our honey-producing neighbours have broader implications for humans and the planet.
