PBS Nature: My Garden Of A Thousand Bees

My Garden of a Thousand Bees, PBS Nature, Premiere: 20 October 2021

A story of surprise and revelation. A wildlife cameraman spends his time during the coronavirus pandemic lockdown filming the bees in his urban garden and discovers the many diverse species and personalities that exist in this insect family.

It’s about an hour-long program. You may be able to watch the whole thing here:


A female bee’s self-made fortress of a shell and sticks. Unbelievable.

Bee mating ritual caught on camera. Bees are tender? Bees are tender.

Large male Wool Carder bee defends his territory. Bees are also fighty.

Completely changed my perspective of bees. I dream of the day we stop using pesticides.
