The ostrich, the emu, and the rhea, together with the kiwi and the cassowary, are the court jesters of the avian world, because they can't do the one thing that birds are famous for doing. They can't fly. But exactly how and why did these birds abandon flight? It's been one of the natural world's great mysteries. And now DNA is promising to give us the answer.

This informative, 60-minute nature-documentary from PBS takes a close-up look at the flightless birds of the world, such as the ostrich and the kiwi.

It is certainly one of the natural world's greatest mysteries that these feathered creatures cannot make lift-off, especially when faced with danger.

From Africa, to Australia, to South America - The viewer is given a guided tour of the habitats of these big, flightless birds of the world.

An excellent documentary hosted by David Attenborough. This looks at the various species of birds who have ended up flightless but formidable in various parts of the southern hemisphere. Enlightening and insightful.
