Excerpt: Following in the footsteps of "Planet Earth" and "Life", this epic eight-part blockbuster is a breathtaking celebration of the amazing, complex, profound and sometimes challenging relationship between humankind and nature. Humans are the ultimate animals - the most successful species on the planet. From the frozen Arctic to steamy rainforests, from tiny islands in vast oceans to parched deserts, people have found remarkable ways to adapt and survive.
Conclusion: This is another outstanding effort from the BBC that not only shows us life in other parts of the world, but also gives us the opportunity to realize how good we have it here. Seeing other cultures and ways of life is something that I believe is beneficial to our understanding of the world and our place in it and I highly recommend this series. If you loved Planet Earth or Blue Planet , I can safely assure you that you will love this series as well.
Excerpt: Earth Day is one of the “newer” events that we as a people celebrate and it was first brought to my attention by a high school science teacher. He was “eco-friendly” even when it wasn’t en vogue to be such. About half of my class too his Environmental Studies class simply because it was an easy “A” and me, never being the sharpest knife in the drawer, doubled in Math. Oh well. As we’ve seen, the Earth is much like our bodies, a very tough, yet very fragile thing.
Excerpt: BBC Earth has separated its products from the plethora of nature documentaries that have proliferated this HD era. Both Planet Earth and Life explored the various regions and eco systems of our planet and how animals and insects have adapted to them. The format was simple yet the results were astoundingly well produced and highly engaging but also educational.
Conclusion: All too often we sit around in our homes and offices, safe in our comfortable bubbles, not realizing what sort of difficulties humans all over the world suffer everyday. The trials they must face, and the day-to-day struggle just to find food to eat. 'Human Life' barely scratches the surface of human existence, but it's a start.
