    New series much like Planet Earth but about humans and their environment. Looks awesome. I'm a sucker for shows like this.

    OMG, that looks awesome.

    It startles us, I think, every time we get a glimpse of ourselves as a species of animal, as part of the ecosystem of earth. This reminds me of a recurring daydream I have of going back to university and studying anthropology, which means, "The study of being human." I can't think of anything more fascinating.

    Thanks for sharing and if you catch the particulars for this show's debut, please do shout out!

    Anthropology means the study of humankind. The study of being human would be better called meditation.

    This show looks fascinating. Lovely film work in the promo. One of my favourite classes in university was called "Human Geography" and I always remember something the professor said the real changing point from what I now think of as Paleo living (hunter gatherer) to today's modern living. He said humans are the most adaptive animals on the planet and that originally we learned to adapt to our environment better than any other species, which is why we have survived so long, but the big changes to civilization, human development and advancement, exchange of ideas and abilities etc started when humans became more interested in forcing their environment to change to suit their needs rather than changing their needs to suit the environment they were in. When I look at our modern world and all our health and environmental issues going on now I can totally see the chain of events leading to this mess we've created. It was an amazing class, would have easily gone hand and hand with an anthropology class.

    that looks really cool! also, did you see that they're working on a sister production called "little human planet"? it's basically the same thing, but the focus is on children. then there was also the Babies movie.

    I've seen the Babies movie. It was okay.
    But Human Planet looks awesome!
    Annnnnnd this is why I'm an anthropology major. People are so adaptable and it always amazes me (especially when there is an underlying biological reason for the adaption... to prevent/fight disease, hack food for nutrition, etc.).
