At one and a half times the size of the United States it has a year round population of only 800 people. Three quarters of the world's fresh water envelops it in a layer of ice so thick it conceals mountain ranges as vast as the Alps. And with temperatures seventy degrees below zero centigrade and winds of up to 120 mph Antartica is the coldest loneliest place on Earth. But it is also a place of majestic beauty which can support astonishingly rich and varied forms of wildlife. P
World in Action was, undoubtedly, ITV's flagship current-affairs series. Over four decades this multiple BAFTA winner was fearless, trailblazing and hard-hitting in its coverage of subjects that other programmes would not dare to touch - earning the ire of ITV regulators and, at times, the Government, with the team often investigating stories at their own personal risk. This volume comprises 23 programmes covering major stories from the '60s to the '90s; these include the 1967 Arab-Is...
Civilisation's final frontier may not be the furthest reaches of space, but the inner world underground. So far, the deepest humans have ventured is just 7 miles, which is just 500th of the way to the Earth's core. Through CGI, live action and archive footage, History will take viewers on a jaw-dropping descent nearly 5,000 miles to the centre of the Earth. Along the way, we'll explore some awesome natural wonders, encounter bizarre ancient life forms, witness eye-popping triumphs of human engineering, savour the reality of humanity's greatest and strangest underground endeavours, and, at the core, find one of the keys to life itself.
At 4.6 billion years old, the Solar System is our solid, secure home in the Universe. But how did it come to be? We trace the system's birth from a thin cloud of dust and gas. Shocked by a nearby supernova, the pull of gravity and natural rotation spun it into a flat disc from which the Sun and planets coalesced. It all happened in the space of 700 million years, during which the planets jockeyed for position, dodging the brutal bombardment of deadly asteroids and setting into the neat, stable system that we now realise might be a rarity in the universe. Explore the history of our planets for the first time in spectacular 3-D!
In 1979 David Attenborough presented Life on Earth, the first wildlife blockbuster series, a chronicle of three-and-a-half billion years of natural history. The Living Planet followed five years later, an equally ambitious 12-part documentary which spanned the globe with portraits of each of the major geographical regions which offer home to life. Attenborough demonstrates how even in the most hostile of environments, from the volcanic "Furnaces of the Earth" to "The Frozen World" of mountains and tundra, the Arctic and Antarctic, live maintains a foothold. He takes us to "The Northern Forests", the "Jungle", "Seas of Grass" and "The Baking Deserts", and ever the genial host, details how in all its endless diversity, life is ingeniously suited to its surroundings. With breathtaking imagery we meet our fellow inhabitants, from penguins to polar bears, lions to scorpions, oaks to eagles, and journey on to "The Open Ocean" and the "New Worlds" which mankind itself is rapidly fashioning through ever more radical technological change. The series ends with an impassioned environmental plea which rings even more urgent now than in 1984. The Trials of Life (1990) and The Private Life of Plants (1994) further detail The Living Planet. --Gary S. Dalkin
