Top 10 Memorable Moments in Nature Captured by Leonardo Thermal Imaging Technology for the BBC

Added: 17th May 2024 by Leonardo

In October 2013, the BBC broadcast its ambitious nature documentary The Great British Year. Each of the four seasons presents unique situations for Britain's environment and to help capture the cold dark nights of winter, the BBC turned to Leonardo.

For more than 65 years, engineers at our sites across Britain have been developing secure communications and surveillance systems, including thermal imaging technology.

With the ability to capture high-resolution imagery while operating in the most challenging environments around the world, our technology has brought pioneering new perspectives to BBC wildlife documentaries for more than 10 years.

Here, we look back at some of the greatest moments captured by our cameras for TV audiences.
