Nature: Love in the Animal Kingdom
Wednesday, April 30 at 8:00 p.m.
Animals dance, sing, flirt and compete with everything they’ve got to find and secure a mate.

In this delightful, provocative look at the love life of animals, watch the feminine wiles of a young gorilla, the search for Mr. Right among a thousand flamingos, the open “marriages” of blue-footed boobies, the soap opera arrangements of gibbons and all the subtle, outrageous, romantic antics that go into finding a partner
