Sir David Attenborough tells the stories of the world's best animal architects. There are house-proud bower birds, who only find a mate if they decorate their homes perfectly. There are hornets, who build electric central-heating systems, and the star-nosed mole whose house is so well designed...

Going above ground and under, we will investigate just what goes into making a home when you're wild and cost is not a factor.
