This six-part nature documentary series reveals one of the world's most enigmatic countries -- one filled with natural complexity, picturesque landscapes and colorful people -- all spectacularly captured, from the Himalayas to the tropical islands, using high-definition cameras. The series was filmed for 16 months and involved a half-million miles of travel, with footage being shot in 26 of China's 30 provinces. Topics covered in the series include the climate and terrain of South China, which is ideal for rice cultivation, and the Tibetan Plateau.
The planet is teeming with myriad life forms, both plant and animal, all interlocked in a struggle for survival. As time goes on, some living things are forced to adapt and change to survive. This series chronicles some of the most unusual, if not downright bizarre, behaviors that living organisms have devised to keep their species alive. The 11-episode series was four years in the making, taking camera crews to every continent and habitat.
From the frozen tundra in the north to the dry forests of the equator, Sir David Attenborough narrates a compelling view of the planet. "Planet Earth" was the first natural history documentary to be filmed in high definition, and now a decade later improved technology has made it possible to capture further details, from elusive animal behaviors to previously inaccessible remote landscapes. In addition to exploring the wilderness, the series examines urban dwellings, focusing on animals that have adapted to city life.
