Exploring Earth’s power - and fragility - to sustain life, this latest documentary series by BBC Earth will showcase cutting-edge cinematography, environmental storytelling both intimate and grand, and the world’s favourite natural historian Sir David Attenborough’s timeless narration.

This five-part series will show how the forces of nature - weather, ocean currents, solar energy and volcanoes - drive, shape and support Earth’s great diversity of life. In doing so, it will reveal how animals (such as, the golden snub-nose monkeys in China; the flamboyant cuttlefish in Lembeh, Indonesia; Bryde’s whales and fig wasps in Thailand; gibbons in Vietnam; and camels in Mongolia) are perfectly adapted to whatever the environment throws at them.

This truly global series was filmed across 31 countries, including some of Asia’s most iconic natural habitats, national parks and seas, such as Queen Sirikit Botanical Gardens, Cat Tien National Park, Shennongjia National Park, the Gulf of Thailand, and the Gobi Desert, Mongolia.
