Not sure how David's going to top those miniature mating frogs from last week (was anyone else weirdly touched by their love making? Just me? Moving on), but he can but try. This week, Attenborough describes some of the wildlife spectacles of southern Africa, starting out in a little-explored rainforest discovered only six years ago by scientists who spotted it on satellite maps. There, thousands of butterflies dance for the right to mate, while on a tiny island off Mozambique, green turtles emerge from eggs and begin a hazardous journey to the water - with pied crows and hungry crabs eager to get them. Cameras also capture one of the largest gatherings of great white sharks on the planet, as 30 of the predators circle around a dead whale.
