A short trailer to anounce the TV-broadcast in "planet wissen":
A sundew is kicking a fruit fly with one of its catapulting tentacles and makes it stumble into the catapult-trap of a neighbour plant. A mighty fine draft for this filmlet. The scientific publication of the catapult-flypaper trap in 2012 in PLOS ONE (dx.plos.org/10.1371/journal.pone.0045735) has been a botanical sensation. Also the technology writer Volker Arzt became aware of it and recommended our (until now unique) HD-shots to the editorial staff of the scientific broadcast "planet wissen".
The result: On September 11th our shots will be on air for the first time worldwide on the German TV stations SWR (1:15 pm) and ARD alpha (3 pm). A broadcast on the German WDR will follow soon.
The broadcast will be online later at the YouTube-channel of "planet-wissen".
The broadcast is meanwhile online in the German language. It's not on YouTube, but on the "media-channel" of the TV-station. Click on top on the video-screen beside the titel "Pflanzen wie wir - Neue Sicht auf unsere grünen Mitgeschöpfe" (Plants like us - a new look on our green fellow creatures):
