If one has spent one’s whole life, or nearly all of it, in the western world, one could be forgiven for forgetting that there are other communities, other tribes and other smaller societies that operate very differently, to say the least, to the western world.
One TV programme in the UK that ranks highly in all the reviews is Human Planet. It is a work of photographic art. Such an eye opener, heart-warmer, jaw-dropper…you name it, and it is most worthy of a blog post. In the second video below, you will see what this man does, all to get his family some honey.
Hard to put into words the wonder of this documentary series, the photography was truly the best.
“Human Planet is an awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping, heart-stopping landmark series that marvels at mankind’s incredible relationship with nature in the world today.
Uniquely in the animal kingdom, humans have managed to adapt and thrive in every environment on Earth. Each episode takes you to the extremes of our planet: the arctic, mountains, oceans, jungles, grasslands, deserts, rivers and even the urban jungle. Here you will meet people who survive by building complex, exciting and often mutually beneficial relationships with their animal neighbours and the hostile elements of the natural world.
Human Planet crews have filmed in around 80 locations, bringing you many stories that have never been told on television before. The team has trekked with HD cameras and state of the art gear to film from the air, from the ground and underwater. The result: a “cinematic experience” created by world-class natural history and documentary camera crews and programme makers.”
I couldn’t get a full length episode to embed itself in this post, so please click this link for the first full length episode, “Oceans Into The Blue”. (Click out of the first couple of boxes – one big, one small – and there is a boring ad first…but well worth it!)
