Seven Worlds, One Planet Full Episode Guide

  • Africa is home to the greatest wildlife gatherings on Earth. But even in this land of plenty, wildlife faces huge challenges. At its heart is a vast tropical rainforest full of life. Here young chimpanzees learn how to use tools to make the most of the jungles riches. Rivalling the jungle for its sheer abundance of life is Africa's Great Rift Valley, the richest freshwater habitat on the planet. Africa's rich Serengeti grasslands are home to the greatest herds of antelopes, wildebeest and zebras. Close behind them are their predators.

  • Europe is a crowded continent transformed by mankind where extraordinary animals are found in surprising places. High above the city of Gibraltar, Barbary macaques - Europe's only non-human primates - live lives full of kidnappings and high drama, while in the cemeteries of Vienna 'grave robbing' European hamsters battle each other for food. Come nightfall, the forests surrounding ancient Italian mountain villages become the hunting grounds for rarely seen wolves, and deep underground in Slovenia's caves, olms or 'baby dragons' can be found lurking in the pitch black.

  • Asia is the largest and most extreme continent on our planet, stretching from the Arctic Circle to the tropical forests on the equator. The animals here face the hottest deserts, tallest jungles and highest mountains found anywhere on Earth. In the frozen lands of the Kamchatka peninsula in Russia, bears seek out active volcanoes - despite the dangers. And on the Siberian coast, a remarkable spectacle appears for a few weeks during the summer - tens of thousands of walruses haul themselves onto a beach in one of the largest gatherings of mammals seen anywhere in the world.

  • The most species-rich continent on earth. From the volcanoes of the Andes to the world’s largest rainforest, animals here must specialise to carve out a niche.

  • A land of change where pioneering animals make the most of surprising opportunities.

  • A land cast adrift at the time of the dinosaurs. Isolated for millions of years, the weird and wonderful animals marooned here are like nowhere else on Earth.
