Deadly 60 United Kingdom
Thursday 13 August
Steve Backshall heads to more familiar territory to show viewers that you do not
have to travel to exotic countries to find deadly creatures, in the penultimate
episode of the series. This week, he is searching the UK for predators worthy of
making it onto his deadly list.
He travels to the Welsh coast to witness the skilful hunting of greedy gannets.
These incredibly streamlined birds are nature's equivalent of a harpoon. They can
spot their prey from 30m, hit the water at 60 miles per hour, and their clever
design means that air sacks around their chest and head cushion the impact.
Impressed by this dazzling diving display, Steve tries to have a go himself and
launches himself into the sea from 20m up an oil rig. The result is a very sore head
and a huge amount of respect for these lethal hunters.
Next, Steve heads off to some heath land in search of the only snake that has ever
hospitalised him – the adder. Steve has never caught an adder before and, after a
long hunt, during which he finds every other snake that lives in the British Isles,
his persistence finally pays off and he uncovers the only venomous snake in the UK.
Finally, Steve heads to some woodlands to demonstrate the incredible flying and
hunting skills of the goshawk. These birds of prey have eyesight which is eight
times better than humans and they can decelerate from 30 miles per hour to stop in
around a second. When it comes to hunting, the goshawk thinks, acts and sees in a
different world of speed.
