Nature Screen: My Garden of A Thousand Bees

Nature Screen: compelling, educational and visually stunning science, nature, and history documentaries that inspire appreciation, curiosity, and stewardship of our natural world and its inhabitants.

My Garden of a Thousand Bees is a story of surprise and revelation! Martin Dohrn, a veteran wildlife cameraman and bee enthusiast, embarked on a special challenge during the Covid-19 lockdown of 2020: to film all the bees he could find in his tiny urban garden in Bristol, England.

By the end of the summer, he became bee obsessed and saw more than 60 species of bees that come in all shapes and sizes, from Britain’s largest bumblebees to scissor bees, which are the size of a mosquito. This stunningly filmed documentary will enlighten viewers about the incredible diversity of bees and the mini dramas playing out in our own backyards.
