If you have the chance to catch up with the BBC nature series ‘Spy in the Wild’, you won’t be disappointed. The makers have placed animatronic spy creatures in the wild to record intimate footage of animal behaviour. So many nature films focus on hunting; what has been so touching about this series is that it has revealed the intimacy of the relationships and bonds formed between animals. It becomes clear just how much we all have in common. I include here a video of the series makers John Downer and Rob Pilley talking about the experience but first an extraordinary clip of Langur monkies displaying a grief and empathy we can all recognise.
