“Bee City” Presents a Look into a Beehive

This 1951 film offers a delightfully narrated glimpse into the buzzing metropolis of a beehive and the roles the different types of bees play to make sure their “city” keeps running.

“Thirty thousand inhabitants of a city are exposed before your eyes, as our camera peers and probes into a community of bees. We witness perhaps the most ingenious creatures of the insect world – their growth, their myriad activities, their whole society, all of which is an amazing chapter in nature’s wonderland.”
