Information
------------------------------

Alien Empire puts you into the bizarre world of insects for an unforgetable encounter with the alien life that surrounds you. Where science fiction meets science fact. This is a radical adventure that will turn your world inside out. Stunning macrophotography and stateoftheart, multisensory digital effects propel you into a world of unimaginable power, intelligence, beauty and horror.

Insects are everywhere and in vast numbers too. There are at least a million species, ranging from microscopic beetles and wasps to beetles which are larger and heavier than the smaller mammals. They inhabit desert and arctic tundra, land and sea; they are even in our homes and on our bodies. Unsung toilers on our behalf, they perform most of the major ecological tasks upon which we and all other species depend. Many animals, birds and people rely on them for food, while all of our fruits and many of our vegetables are entirely dependent on them for pollination. We need to know more about these extraordinarily beautiful and complex creatures to understand their vital role in maintaining our planet's life support systems so that we are better placed to conserve them and, ultimately, our own living space.

Incredible photography, graphics and time-lapse techniques investigate how these agile creatures become airborne, seemingly defying the conventional laws of flight. From the beautiful blues, greens and reds of jewel beetles to close-up footage of a moon moth emerging from its cocoon, this WNET/BBC co-production provides a fascinating insight into the sophisticated miniature world of insects and takes the viewer on a spellbinding journey into another world.

6)  War of the Worlds 
"War of the Worlds" reveals the hostile, yet dependent, relationship of humans and insects. Though insects invade homes, destroy crops and spread disease, they assist humans in food production and industry. Without insects, humans could not survive. The program delves into the chemical and biological control of insect pests, such as wasps in New Zealand and African bees in the Americas, and also looks at traditional and new pollination techniques and the dependence of humanity on the insect world.
We have worshipped the honey bee, formed a profitable partnership with the silkworm, and recruited many insects to wage war on their more destructive counterparts. All but the Western cultures depend on insects for protein in their diet, and some look to them for profitable entertainment. Nevertheless the lethal chemicals we use to do battle with them has helped to create resistant strains of megainsects.
