This weeks Science Saturday is all about the brilliant BBC special ‘Animals Behaving Badly’. It’s a three-part series presented by the fantastic Liz Bonnin on the innovative and mischievous behaviours that help animals mate, get food and survive.

This series showcases the sheer ingenuity of the creatures that share this planet with us and how they have adapted in order to survive.
