Discovery Channel's LIFE Ends With Three-Hour Finale (VIDEO)

LIFE is ending this Sunday, but not before it makes a grand exit with three back-to-back episodes. The three-hour finale will start with a close-up look at plants, moving on to primates in the second hour. And if you've ever wondered how the show captures its visual glory, the last hour will give you behind-the-scenes look at the making of LIFE.

Here's a clip from the plants episode, and before you say-- who cares about looking at plants?-- bear with us. This filming of a creeper plant's life is possibly one of the most breathtaking visuals committed to film. It zeroes in on the plants' every movement, making you see them just as they are, but as we rarely get to see them, as living, breathing things.
