Viewers have long been accustomed to seeing the BBC Natural History Unit presenting the glories of nature in spectacular close-up. Now, for the first time, they have turned their cameras on ourselves, human beings, highlighting our amazing adaptability to habitats throughout our planet. In doing so, they have provided a majestic portrait of humankind and the power of nature with which we have to contend.
Uniquely in the animal kingdom, humans have managed to adapt and thrive in every environment on Earth. Each episode in the series focuses on a different extreme habitat – the arctic, mountains, oceans, jungles, grasslands, deserts, rivers and even the busiest urban metropolis – and reveals how humans have adapted to the challenges of the landscape and the endless diversity of animals and plants with which we must live.
This eight-part landmark BBC natural history series is narrated by John Hurt and features original music by composer Nitin Sawnhey. It is awe inspiring in its scope, demonstrating that humans are an integral part of nature, and not just the destructive ‘planetary villains’ that it is so easy to label us as.
Contains all eight episodes: Oceans, Deserts, Arctic, Jungles, Mountains, Grasslands, Rivers and Cities.
