Animal Games

As the human world gathers to stage its greatest athletic contest, the animal world holds its own spectacular contest for Gold, Silver and Bronze. Hosted by the Birds, the Games take place within a stadium, set deep inside a volcanic island. Animal competitors from the Mammals, Birds, Insects, Reptiles and the Fish nations are scaled to human size so everyone is on level pegging as they compete in the 100m, high jump, long jump, shooting, weight lifting and swimming. All the tricks of multi-camera shooting, action replays and photo finishes are used to analyse each event.

Featuring some of most astonishing feats in nature, many of which have never been filmed before, this one-off spectacular, showcases how animal abilities surpass that of any human competitors.

Commentators John Motson and Jonathan Pearce add to the excitement. From the opening ceremony to the nail-biting finale, expect the unexpected.
