An extraordinary
video about
honey bees
Beginning in 1952 and for the next twelve years, master beekeeper and photographer, Charles Hofmann, created the images and wrote the narrative for The World of Bees. He did not intend to teach people how to keep bees, but to show people something of how honey bees live and work, and to share his love of bees and the beauty of the environment in which they work. Hofmann presented his show for over 30 years to thousands of students and to countless groups large and small. His remarkable and award winning program is now available on DVD and Blu-ray.
