Like all life forms, humanity partially adapts to types of natural environment, yet also tends to change them. Each episode examines how life differs for men and nature in some type of environment, from Arctic to desert and jungle, from coasts to mountains.

What are people saying?

  • Bogdan Liviu's rating of the film Human Planet

    A mesmerizing journey through mountains, oceans, jungles, deserts, well, through the whole world, really. In the first episode we get to see the dramatic life of a compressor diver and how Pa-aling fishermen live.The whole thing has 7 episodes, each containing around 60 minutes- totally worth the time. In fact it would be a waste of time not to see this. Five stars, no debate. Hat's off to BBC for making this happen.
