In the last decade scientists and explorers have discovered a staggering quarter of a million new species, and this celebratory programme showcases the most extraordinary in a special top ten. These are the creatures no one dreamed even existed, the ones which have the scientists in a spin and caused the text books to be re-written. From the world's longest insect - almost as long as a human arm, to one of the rarest mammals on Earth - the pygmy three-toed sloth - filmed for the first time swimming in the waters of the Caribbean, and the carnivorous pitcher plant big enough for a human fist to fit inside, these stories prove Earth can still surprise us.
