About Life in our Planet:
Today there are 20 million species on our planet, yet what we see is just a snapshot in time — 99% of Earth’s inhabitants are lost to our deep past. The four billion-year story of what happened to these dynasties — their rise and their fall — is truly remarkable. Life on Our Planet uses the latest science and technology to bring long extinct creatures back to life, presenting the incredible story of life’s epic battle to conquer and survive on Earth. Organized around the five mass extinction events that have forever shaped the planet, plus the sixth we’re facing today, the series brings creatures known only from fossils to life in dramatic, photoreal fashion. These stunning scenes are presented alongside cutting-edge natural history sequences, showcasing the unique evolutionary advantages modern species have inherited from their ancestors in ways that have never been seen before. Audiences will see the story of life unfold through its most pivotal moments: from the first single-celled life form, to the first animals to move out from the sea and onto land, to the first creatures to take flight. Revisiting one of Earth’s longest-lived dynasties, the dinosaurs, viewers will bear witness to the cataclysmic downfall that led to the age of the mammals and the rise of the most dangerous animal the earth has ever seen: us.
As it traces our lineage across this epic journey, Life on Our Planet underscores our unique status as the only species in the four billion-year story of life to understand what is happening to our world and what is needed to put it right. But whatever future awaits, the past reminds us that life has always found a way.
