Program Description
To fly like a bird, Earthflight not only captures remarkable images of wild flocks but also relies on some extraordinary relationships between people and birds. Filmed over four years on 6 continents and in more than 40 countries, the Earthflight team uses many extraordinary techniques. For some of the unique flying shots, members of the team become part of the flock. The birds follow wherever they go - even in a microlight over Edinburgh and London. In Africa, paragliders float alongside wild vultures, while a model vulture carries a camera inside the flock. In South America, wild-living macaws, that were rescued as babies, still come back to visit their "foster mother," one of the cinematographers, as he travels along a jungle river. In Africa, a radio-controlled drone silently infiltrates masses of pink flamingos without disturbing a feather, and microlights and helicopters capture the dramatic moment white storks arrive over Istanbul. Back in Africa, a tame vulture carries a camera across the African bush and recreates the behavior of his wild relatives. Similarly, in the United States, a flock of hand-reared snow geese follows the migration route of wild flocks and takes in the sights and sounds of New York City - managing to get lost in Brooklyn.
