Nature: Silence Of The Bees
Winner of the prestigious Peabody Award, this gripping episode explores one of Nature's most baffling mysteries: the disappearance of the honeybee. Beginning in the winter of 2006, millions of bees vanished from their hives without a trace. A precious pollinator of fruits and vegetables, the disappearing bees left billions of dollars of crops at risk and threatened our food supply. Join researchers as they follow the trail of clues from the United States to southern France, from the hills of Spain to England, all the way to Australia and China as they scramble to discover why honeybees are dying in record numbers - and to stop the epidemic in its tracks before it spreads further.
