Attenborough's Natural Curiosities shines spotlight on 'Young Wrinklies'

13 February 2013

Sir David Attenborough visited Queen Mary last year to record an episode in his new series, Natural Curiosities. He visited the lab of Dr Chris Faulkes to look at his work with naked mole-rats - a small bald animal with a set of highly unusual traits. In a backstage clip, Dr Faulkes discusses the physical characteristics and social behaviour of mole-rats. The episode Young Wrinklies first aired on Tuesday 12 February and will be shown again tonight at 6pm.
