Cameras in space tell stories of life on our planet from a brand new perspective, revealing its incredible movements, colors, patterns and just how fast it is changing. This is our home, as we’ve never seen it before.
Episode 1 | Moving Planet
Cameras in space tell stories of life on our planet from a brand new perspective. Our planet is constantly on the move; from individual animals to powerful weather systems. Follow an elephant family struggling through drought and marvel as thousands of Shaolin Kung-Fu students perform in perfect synchronicity.
Episode 2 | Colorful Planet
From space, earth is not just a blue planet but a kaleidoscope of color. Swirls of turquoise phytoplankton trigger an oceanic feeding frenzy, China turns yellow as millions of flowers bloom and at night the waters off the coast of Argentina are spotted with mysterious green lights.
Episode 3 | Patterned Planet
From space, earth’s surface is covered in weird and wonderful shapes. Wombats design their own landscape in Australia and hundreds of forest elephants create a tear in the endless green of the Congo forest canopy.
Episode 4 | Changing Planet
Cameras in space show just how fast our planet is changing. Cities are growing, forests are disappearing and glaciers melting but in Tanzania locals have regenerated the landscape, saving a family of chimpanzees.
