Summary
Accompanying Radio 4's landmark six-month-long series presented by Brett Westwood, 'Natural Histories' explores 25 unexpected species that have changed the way we see the world. From cockroaches to coral, and from mammoths to meteorites, their stories are extraordinary and eye-opening: What happened when a pipe-smoking, gin-drinking monkey dined with George IV? What cutting-edge technology have we borrowed from beetles? How could giant squid sink large ships? Why should sharks be scared of us rather than vice versa? Why were butterflies once seen as evil? How have brambles helped solve murders? Each chapter focuses on a different creature or species - the lion offers a starting point to discussing our relationship with power; coral with the idea of paradise; and the nightshade with poisons
