Animal Babies: First Year on Earth • 2019 • 3 episodes • 2h:57m
Cameras follow six baby animals as they learn the basic skills needed to face the challenges of surviving their first year on Earth.
The first three critical months are when our animal babies have to rapidly get to grips with their new family and the challenges of environment that surrounds them.

Approaching the end of their first year on Earth, the animal babies take on the most complex challenges of their lives. A mountain gorilla infant learns the co-ordination to roam free in the forest.
