Midsummer is a critical time for bees when they must gather enough food for the winter and so with the help of Professor Adam Hart, Chris and Martha are on a quest to find out how the bees do it. Using a specially-designed hive and a formidable arsenal of cutting-edge technology, they lift the lid on the mysteries of the beehive like never before. Chris and Martha put the latest scientific findings about bees to the test and discover why they are one of the most incredible creatures on our planet.
