How do series like Planet Earth capture footage of things like the inside of ant hills, or sharks feeding off of a dead whale?

Partially I’m wondering the physical aspect of how they fit in these places or get close enough to dangerous situations to film them; and partially I’m wondering how they seem to be in the right place at the right time to catch things like a dead whale sinking down into the ocean?

What are the odds they’d be there to capture that and how much time do they spend waiting for these types of things?

The recent Attenborough series has a bonus episode where they take you behind the scenes of some of the shots. I believe it was called “our planet”.

It may help answer some of your questions, for example it took 2 people living in a shed for the winter 3 years to capture just 25 secs of footage of this super rare tiger.
