Synopsis:
Using special 'spy cameras' invented by the wildlife film makers at John Downer Productions, the viewer is plunged into the very heart of the extraordinary lives of over thirty fascinating animals across the world, including langurs, orangutans, meerkats and crocodiles, revealing behaviour that is remarkably like our own. To expose some of the most astonishing animal behaviour ever seen, the team of Spy Creatures go undercover. These robotic look-alikes make all the right moves to not only be accepted by animals but also interact with them, providing revelatory insights into their world.
In this four part series, each episode is packed with a menagerie of animatronic Spy Creatures exploring the different aspects of animal behaviour: Love, Intelligence, Friendships and Mischief. The innovative techniques and ambition of the BBC One series are documented in the fifth ''Making Of" episode, where we see the creation of the Spy Creatures and witness their first magical moves before being deployed around the world; from deserts and rainforests to the Polar Regions.

Very Different - Spy in the Wild: Series 1 review by PN

Spoiler Alert
31/05/2018

This was never meant to be an average wildlife documentary, the whole project was like an espionage mission into the wild, to trick animals into being off guard while a very expensive robot invades their territory and sits right beside them. In honesty, this made the show 10 times better as they put the viewer right into the thick of it. You can see the curiosity of the animals and most were able to tell it was not real, but not worried enough to escape it. The chimpanzees can be seen attacking it with rocks and sticks and generally being freaked by the strange animal in the tree with cameras for eyes. They cover a whole range of animals across the globe, rainforests, desert, sea, air. It's a spectacular achievement for the crew and definitely worth a watch even if you're not an addict of wildlife films.
