Watch Human Planet
- 1 Season
Human Planet is a part of the 8-part British TV documentary series. It was produced by BBC with a co-production from the BBC Worldwide and Discovery channel. It basically is a tv series that describes the human being species as well as its relationship upon the natural world simply by showing the many remarkable ways a human has adapted into their life in all types of environments here on Earth. It was announced in 2007 that the production teams were based upon the BBC's Natural History Unit near BBC and Bristol Wales. They spent 3 years shooting nearly 70 different stories in a couple of the coolest remote locations here on Earth spanning over 40 different countries. Each episode that this series had focused on different types of human inhabited environments such as the Arctic, deserts, jungles, rivers, grasslands, oceans, urban landscape, as well as mountains. For the very first time on the BBC landmark series this production hired a dedicated stills photographer named Timothy Allen, who was the one who documented the entire project photographically for their books and multimedia which had accompanied the series. The Human Planet series was first screened in the United Kingdom on the BBC One every Thursday at 8 pm for over eight weeks straight, starting from January 13, 2011. The domestic repeats have actually been seen on the Eden, with all of the 8 episodes being aired in the time span of one week, which was on April 2012. The BBC Worldwide productions have since announced that they have sold their broadcast rights to over 22 different international markets. The Human Planet series received 7 different BAFTA Television Craft award nominations, one of the most nominations for any program in the year of 2011, plus it won over 2 of those nominations, both for their Arctic episode, where Savage won a factual editing prize, while Doug Allan, Matt Norman, and Will Edwards won the photography and cinematography prize. The show was very much awaited in the United Kingdom according to BAFTA, making the series very much worthy of the awards and nominations they were given.
