What is Tiny World about?

If you’re a fan of the often-overlooked small species, then this series on the “tiny heroes” is for you. Over 200 species were filmed over the course of nearly a decade, including the diminutive Cuban bee hummingbird, and Africa’s smallest carnivore, the dwarf mongoose. The majority of filming took place in the wild, though in some cases – due to animal welfare considerations – captive animals were filmed.

The first six episodes each focusses on a different habitat: savannah, jungle, island, outback, woodland, and garden.
