The Living Planet
Filmed on five continents The Living Planet examines one by one each of the earths environments, seeing how living organisms survive and thrive in conditions ranging from the Arctic to the tropical. Also revealed is how creatures in similar habitats thousands of miles apart, have adopted intriguingly similar solutions to their common problems. The series begins at the beginning how huge forces formed the earth, how continents move and how the planet has become so varied.

Finally The Living Planet looks at how human beings have changed the earths habitats, destroying but also creating new ones and also looks at what the future may hold for the whole community on our amazing planet.
