The Unseen Powers Of Animals

Unseen Power of Animals is a six-part British nature documentary television miniseries  that was produced by John Downer Productions and commissioned by the BBC Natural History Unit, the same team behind the earlier successful shows Supersense and Lifesense.

The program was narrated by Andrew Sachs and originally broadcast in the United Kingdom on BBC1 in 1999. The theme of the series was "the unseen power of animals."

John Downer's Supernature provides a companion to the BBC television show, charting the boundaries between science and the supernatural with an examination of extrasensory perception and unusual animal abilities.

From life forms which survive under the most adverse conditions to the hidden language of animals, this surveys some extraordinary abilities of the animal world.

When science fiction becomes science fact... This groundbreaking series unravels the extrasensory feats and near-paranormal powers of animals.

It journeys to the outer limits of scientific knowledge to find a parallel animal universe where life exists in other realities and has powers that almost defy belief.


This landmark series explores the outer limits of recent scientific discoveries and encounters sharks that can perceive human electric auras and dolphins that use ultrasound to see human embryos in the womb.

There are frogs that have mastered cryogenics and can literally freeze themselves out of life for six months, and lizards that cry blood. In this “strange but true” world, lizards walk on water, bacteria make gold and pets predict earthquakes.

Science shows that most animals live in a different sensory and physical world to humans. Enter their world and weird phenomena such as raining fishes and stranded whales suddenly make sense.
