From John Brown’s visually stunning new documentary Empire of the Desert Ants:
I watched the full program last night. The cinematography is breathtaking- especially the underground scenes- and the story is largely plausible insofar as these TV shows go. Too much is made over the centrality of the queen in ant societies; in reality queens are just egg-layers while workers make the key decisions. Still, that’s a minor flaw in an otherwise excellent film.
The narrator, by the way, is Gollum.
