Life on Earth : First broadcast in 1979, Life on Earth began a new era in television, looking at the incredible variety of the worlds wildlife and its evolution. David Attenborough and his talented team of cameramen, producers and scientific advisers bring to the screen some quite remarkable images, which have a lasting impact on any audience. This series was the biggest ever undertaken by the Natural History Unit at the time, using over a million feet of film and 100 locations. It traces the dramatic history of life on earth from its very beginnings, some 3.5 billion years ago, to the final emergence of man and the array of animals that share the world with us today. Life on Earth established David Attenborough and the award-winning Natural History Unit at the forefront of wildlife documentary filmmaking.
The Living Planet : Filmed on five continents The Living Planet examines one by one each of the earths environments, seeing how living organisms survive and thrive in conditions ranging from the Arctic to the tropical. Also revealed is how creatures in similar habitats thousands of miles apart, have adopted intriguingly similar solutions to their common problems. The series begins at the beginning how huge forces formed the earth, how continents move and how the planet has become so varied. The next 10 episodes concentrate on different environments: the frozen Poles, the northern forests, jungles, grasslands, deserts, skies, rivers and lakes, tidal shores, islands and oceans. Finally The Living Planet looks at how human beings have changed the earths habitats, destroying but also creating new ones and also looks at what the future may hold for the whole community on our amazing planet.
The Private Life of Plants : Crawling, flying, exploding, thieving, fighting, killing David Attenborough reveals plants as you have never seen them before- on the move and dangerously devious!

Using computer animations, fibre-optics and unique high-speed and time-lapse photography, we discover how plants have managed to colonise every part of the globe. They can live longer, grow bigger and even come back from the dead.
