Summary
  • Five years in production, over 2000 days in the field 200 locations, this blockbuster 11-part television series takes the viewer on an unforgettable journey with our planet's best-loved, wildest and most elusive creatures from the highest mountains to the deepest rivers, through the challenging seasons and the daily struggle for survival in Earth's most extreme habitats
  • Disc 1. From pole to pole (introduction): Looks at our planet as a whole and considers key factors that have shaped its natural history. -- Mountains: A tour of Earth's mightiest mountain ranges, starting with the birth of a mountain. Includes some of the most reclusive creatures on the planet and the secrets of their survival. -- Fresh water: Follows the descent of rivers from their mountain sources to the sea and showcases the unique and dramatic wildlife found within Earth's unexplored waters
  • Disc 2. Caves: Discover astonishing crystals, cave angel fish, the five million bats of Deer Cave (Borneo), and weird troglodytes. -- Deserts: Deserts make up a staggering 30 percent of the land's surface may seem empty and lifeless, yet they are the most varied of earth's ecosystems. -- Ice worlds: The advance and retreat of polar ice is the real challenge to life from Antarctica to the Arctic
  • Disc 3. Great Plains: From the baking savannahs of Africa to the frozen tundra of the Arctic, discover the greatest gatherings of wildlife on Earth. -- Jungles: Jungles are the most productive places on Earth, but surviving in the jungle is far from easy. -- Shallow seas: Follow a humpback whale mother and calf on an epic journey from tropical coral paradises, where the new-born calf takes his first faltering breaths, to the storm-ravaged icy polar seas, the whales' great feeding grounds
  • Disc 4. Seasonal forests: From the evergreen forests of the frozen North to the deciduous dry forests of the tropics, these woodlands illustrate the intense seasonality of the Earth and are home to a fascinating range of wildlife. -- Ocean deep: From rapier-billed predator sailfish to the exquisitely shelled Nautilus and the threatened blue whale, this journey into the most unexplored part of the planet reveals the extraordinary survivors of this immense and barren realm
  • Disc 5. Saving species: Looks at the reasons behind declining numbers of particular animals, and questions whether we face an extinction crisis, as well as how we choose which species we want to conserve. -- Into the wilderness: Why uninhabited expanses such as the Bialowieza forest, the Gobi desert and the Arctic tundra are important for human survival as well as that of all creatures on the planet. -- Living Together: The history of conservation and how conservation can fit into a world driven by economics and development. Looks at the challenges facing conservation in the 21st Century, as well as the role of religion in promoting a moral and ethical approach to the world we live in
