New nature documentary featuring peacock spiders

The ABC in Australia will show a segment about peacock spiders in the three part series “Magical Land of Oz”. This is not the first time footage of peacock spiders makes it onto TV, but it is the first time a major natural history production about Australian wildlife uses the image of a peacock spider as their main advertisement. Years ago when I started my work on peacock spiders I predicted that in 10-20 years time peacock spiders would be as popular as kangaroos or koalas, this is perhaps evidence that this is happening.
