For a glimpse at just how much effort goes into creating the gorgeous shots captured by the BBC and Discovery Channel, have a look at this exhausting behind-the-scenes footage of a scene from the new series LIFE.

It’s only 60 seconds long, but this time-lapse shot of an English forest blooming in spring took more than two years to create! Narrated by David Attenborough (who voiced the UK version of LIFEOprah has the honors stateside), you see how the crew first shot the forest, then the plants over bluescreen, and finally pieced them all together.

It’s 10-minutes long, but plenty engrossing. Still, if you’re looking for the money shot, jump to the 9-minute mark.

Discovery Channel’s new LIFE series airs on Sundays from March 21 through April 18th. For a look at some of the stunning images from the series, hit our gallery here.
