As its name suggests, this BBC series sees the naturalist, writer and broadcaster Sir David Attenborough present the amazing story of the beginnings of life on Earth.
Spanning billions of years and using the latest technology, First Life’s time-travelling narrative brings the viewer face to face with the first animals that ever existed, revealing what these early animals would have looked like and how they would have lived.
Attenborough shows us how the evolution of the first eyes, the first solid body parts and the first feet and backbones came to be, as well as how some of the evolutionary features of these most primitive creatures are alive today in modern animals – including humans.
Looking at global ice ages and volcanic eruptions he also explains how evolution is heavily connected with the history of the planet. This is an important investigation in typical Attenborough style, in which he travels the world to unearth the secrets hidden in prehistoric fossils, providing a deeper understanding of the first living creatures and the origins of our evolutionary traits.
