Watch Life After People: The Series

As one thinks about what might happen after people are gone, a television show explores the possibility of what the Earth might be like in that situation. Several scientists and engineers gather together to discuss the outcomes of life after people. One of the things that the show doesn't discuss is how people disappear. It could be because of a deadly disease of a mass attack by weapons.

The one thing that the show does give information about is that people have left very quickly. Pets are left at home, and in some cases, dinner has been left on the table. It is a show that looks at the biological decay of the world after people are gone as well as the emotional impact that it could have on the animals left behind. The fate of buildings and plants is explored to see how they might deteriorate with no human interaction.
