UKTV-owned digital channel Eden is to air a five-part series on natural anomalies featuring Sir David Attenborough (pictured).

David Attenborough’s Natural Curiosities (5 x 30-minutes) is produced by Humble Bee Films and will air in the fourth quarter of this year along with the British presenter’s previous series Planet Earth, Life and Madagascar.

Each episode will feature two creatures with distinctive evolutionary adaptations that are linked together by a common theme, such as the platypus, the narwhal and the mole rat.

The series was commissioned by UKTV’s senior commissioning editor Catherine Catton and ordered by Eden’s general manager Adrian Wills. Stephen Dunleavy will executive produce for Humble Bee Films.
