"Kingdom of Plants" Sir David Attenborough on "Solving the Secrets" in Insect UV Vision (3)

I had reported earlier about that here, but now Kew Gardens has a preview video online on youtube about the forthcoming SKY 3D series "Kingdom of Plants" with Sir David Attenborough on Kew Gardens in 3D stereo as well as an overview on their site including an interview with Sir David.

((quote Sir David from an interview)) Attenborough: Kingdom of Plants 3D. "We wanted to use 3D in time-lapse, so that the plants move," he says. "They look sensational. They always do -- but in 3D, they look absolutely mind-blowing." ((unquote))

The following is a clip from Episode II "Solving the Secrets", that will air Saturday June 2, 2012 at 6pm GMT (7pm CET) on SKY 3D and on SKY ATLANTIC in HD and which I have provided the VIS + UV + UV induced visible fluorescence photography for.
