The BBC has again produced a stunning, informative and fascinating series, this time about human interactions with nature, titled The Human Planet. The series takes us to many diverse ecosystems in the world and illustrates how humans have adapted to life under the most extreme climates. Episodes describe life in mountains, grasslands, jungles, the arctic, deserts, rivers and cities. Using courage and ingenuity, humans manage to survive under the harshest circumstances. The series is beautifully filmed and the individuals highlighted in each episode have adapted to their environment in astounding ways–the fisherman who crosses the ravaging Mekong River on a self-made rope bridge in order to catch fish for his family, the New Guinea tribe who builds their homes high in the trees, the 3 tribesmen who hunt facing a pride of lions armed only with spears, the Mongols who train eagles to hunt for food . The people profiled in each episode are filmed with the utmost care and respect, and a 10-minute segment at the end of each series shows the difficulties the filmmakers encountered in filming that took place over a 3 year period. This is an amazing look at human life on our planet and how various cultures have adapted to living with nature.
