"Battle for Survival" is an episode of Walt Disney Presents. It aired on April 9, 1961.


This episode of Walt Disney Presents proves that the battle for survival does not exclusive rage in the "big" world of man and animals. Using extreme close-up photography, the program shows the survival techniques, both inherited and adopted, use by the minutest forms of plant and animal life, on land and in the sea. In a remarkable sequence, time-lapse photography illustrates the life cycle of the humble oat seed. Rutherford Platt and Tilden W. Roberts served as consulting biologists for "Battle for Survival," which, curiously, was neither rebroadcast nor released theatrically after its initial April 1961 play date.
