Filmed on five continents The Living Planet examines,
one by one, each of the earth's environments, seeing how living
organisms survive and thrive in conditions ranging from the
Arctic to the tropical.
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.
next 10 episodes concentrate on different environments: the
frozen Poles, the northern forests, jungles, grasslands, deserts,
skies, rivers and lakes, tidal shores, islands and oceans.
The Living Planet looks at how human beings have changed
the earth's habitats, destroying but also creating new ones
and also looks at what the future may hold for the whole community
on our amazing planet.
you'd expect, with David Attenborough at the helm, this is
not only informative, but incredibly entertaining. Sit any
youngster down to watch this and in no time at all they'll
be speaking knowledgeably about volcanos, the problems of
living in arid deserts, or the icy North Pole. Heck, I've
even started coming out with bits of information when I'm
down the pub.
looks a little dated (or should I say Mr Attenborough's dress
sense does - thank God polar bears didn't dress differently
in the 80s) but your not watching this to laugh at Mr Attenborough's
taste in safari suits - then again, you might be.
include a 40 minute making of documentary which takes us behind
value for money release from BBC Worldwide. This is one collection
that no home should be without.
