From BBC Earth, this is the story of a day in the life of two little heroes: a scorpion mouse and a chipmunk. For each of them this will be a day they never forget.

Using the magic of computer graphics, viewers will become like the fabled Jonah – and be swallowed by a whale in a fun, water-churning roller-coaster ride into the giant’s maw. We’ll see mothers caring for their young and listen to males sing a song that fills the theatre. Because international laws now ban whaling, more than 100,000 Humpbacks live and travel off our shores. They play, they need a good meal, they care for their young and breathe the air we breathe.
