BBC’S “HUMAN PLANET”
AIRS ON GMA NEWS TV THIS AUGUST
Narrated by Kara David
Sundays at 10:15PM, starting August 11
This August, GMA News TV brings back on Philippine free TV BBC’s “Human Planet”... a breathtaking eight-part blockbuster celebrating the complex, profound and sometimes challenging relationship between humankind and nature. It became the highest rating series on the channel when it first aired in January.
From the frozen Arctic to steamy rainforests, from tiny islands in vast oceans to parched deserts, people have found remarkable ways to adapt and survive in the harshest environments imaginable. We’ve done this by harnessing our immense courage and ingenuity; learning to live with and utilise the other creatures that share these wild places.
“Human Planet” weaves together 80 inspiring stories, many never before told on television, set to a globally-influenced soundtrack by award-winning composer Nitin Sawhney. Each episode focuses on a particular habitat and reveals how its people have created astonishing solutions in the face of extreme adversity - rainforests to the middle of the ocean, ice-capped mountains to the driest deserts. At the end of the series, Human Planet visits the urban jungle, where most of us now live, and discovers why the connection between humanity and nature here is the most vital of all.
Narrated in Filipino by award-winning documentarist Kara David, BBC’s “Human Planet” will air every Sunday at 10:15PM, beginning on August 11, only on GMA News TV Channel 11.
