Narrator, Martin Dohrn.
Martin Dohrn, a veteran wildlife cameraman and bee enthusiast, embarked on a special challenge during the COVID-19 lockdown of 2020: to film all the bees he could find in his tiny urban garden in Bristol, England. By the end of the summer, he became bee obsessed and developed relationships with some individuals. Dohrn saw more than 60 species of bees that come in all shapes and sizes, from Britain's largest bumblebees to scissor bees, which are the size of a mosquito. Most people think of bees as honeybees, but the majority of bees are "wild" and make their homes in tunnels underground or in holes carved from wood.
