- This fast-paced and refreshing take on nature documentaries returns to explore more of the unexplained, unexpected and utterly weird aspects of life on our planet. It features the divers who found a transparent blob the size of an elephant under the water, meets the researchers who filmed an army of mice eating the brains of seabird chicks, and finds out what caused the flowing river of ice caught on camera in the Saudi Arabian desert. Using scientific demonstrations, detective work and eyewitness accounts, this series reveals what in the weird world is going on. In this episode Chris Packham uncovers some bizarre events from the natural world. He examines a mysterious die-off of saiga in Kazakhstan and strange holes ripped out of the clouds. He charts the advance of a crab army in Norwegian waters, finds out what's killing off seabirds on remote islands, investigates why spiders are glowing in the dark, sheds light on chimps with rock dolls and discovers strange mineral deposits alive in the caves under France.
