I’m fascinated by the creatures which we so often find so horrible, because they can live with us. Pigeons, rats, mice, flies and other infestations. In some ways, I think, our squeamishness comes from the fact that, consciously or not, we see ourselves in competition with them. They eat what we eat, they can live where we live, indeed, they can, if left unchecked, out compete us in what we think of as our own environments.
This documentary takes this theme one step further, to the creature which not only live in the same environment, but for whom that environment is us. Some of which we could not live without, some of which can kill us, and some that are unpleasant to think about, but mostly harmless.
