'Human Planet’
is a new and ambitious landmark natural history series for BBC1. It celebrates the remarkable ingenuity and success of the human race and the myriad of ways in which we have managed to adapt to every habitat, including the most extreme and inhospitable places on earth. For the first time the BBC have turned the cameras on US. The team has trekked with HD cameras and state of the art gear to film from the air, from the ground and underwater in over 80 locations around the world to capture the amazing ways that human beings have learned to work with nature in order to survive. The result of four years work: a “cinematic experience” created by world-class natural history and documentary camera crews and programme makers. This co-production project between BBC, Discovery and French Television series is narrated by John Hurt and with a soundtrack by Nitin Sawhney.
