Private life of plants

It's shocking to realize that David Attenborough's Private Life of Plants is now 17 years old but it is still one of the most captivating documentaries on plant growth, morphology, ecology and evolution. Time-lapse photography is used extensively throughout the series and reveals plants as much more complex organisms than we generally think.

There are six episodes in total and they are well worth watching but for the condensed version there are a number of clips available online.
