Summary David Attenborough continues his search for the origins of flying animals, charting the rise of new, larger creatures - extinct reptiles that flew on wings of skin, dinosaurs that sprouted feathers to become the ancestors of birds, and gliding mammals that emerged from a life in the trees to dominate the night as bats.Attenborough travels the globe, from the rainforests of Borneo where he meets bizarre gliding animals, to China and its new discoveries of dinosaur fossils.Stunning CGI brings to life creatures that disappeared millions of years ago, and new filming techniques bring us closer to the secrets of flight itself.PRODUCTION DETAILS:Presenter and Writer: David Attenborough. Producer: Anthony Geffen. Director: David Lee. A Colossus Production in association with Atlantic Productions, and with the assistance of ABC
