"A fascinating look at Life on Earth as per the title."

Purchased on Mighty Ape

If you want to learn about life on earth from animals through reptiles to plants this is compulsary viewing.


The BBC series that broke the mould of natural history on television.

First transmitted in 1979, Life On Earth was a sensation. It was the first big-budget natural history blockbuster. A huge, ambitious undertaking which tells the comprehensive, chronological story of how all life evolved on our planet, from the first single-cell organism that appeared about 3,500 million years ago in the seas, to over four million diverse and complex animals and plants that share the world with us today – some of which are now under threat of extinction.

Filmed on location on all continents and featuring some of the most beautiful, breathtaking and advanced photography of the time, the broad sweep of the series was unprecedented and yielded many spellbinding moments that have become part of television history.

Highlights include Attenborough's me­eting with the mountain gorillas of Rwanda, remarkable footage of a live coelacanth (long believed extinct), a tiny tadpole ejected from the mouth of a Darwin frog, not to mention many more brightly coloured jewel-like frogs and the gloomy interior of a cave full of bats.

Attenborough's na­rration is simple but intelligent and his approach allows time to absorb the atmosphere, so that viewers feel that they are there with him.
