BBC Uses Creepy Animal Spy Cameras to Get Close-Up Shots of Wildlife

For its new nature documentary TV show, Spy in the Wild, BBC One deployed a wide range of spy cameras made to look like realistic animals. Using the creepy-looking robotic spies, the show was able to capture rare and impressive shots of wildlife up close.

Here’s a 30-second trailer for the new show, which premieres today on BBC One:

You can find the official page for the show on the BBC One website. The first 3 episodes so far in the 5 part series are titled “Love,” “Intelligence,” and “Friendship.”
