VIDEO: BBC's New Take On Nature Shows

When it comes to television, the Brits just do it better.

And if "Downton Abbey" and "Dr. Who" weren't proof enough, now there's the BBC Two's new nature-travel series, "Wonders of Life."

Check out the preview above–set to Monty Python's "Galaxy Song"–and try not fall in love with combination of beautiful footage, great cinematography and the charming host, Professor Brian Cox, a down-to-earth particle physicist who gets roped into antics such as wandering around near lion prides.

To find out more about the project, check out the Wonder of Life website, Twitter or Facebook page.
