The bulk of the earth’s fresh water is locked away in polar ice caps, and 90 per cent of the world’s ice can be found in Antarctica. Ice-dwelling animals such as the Polar Bear are being affected by dwindling ice supplies around the planet. Glaciologists and research teams are working to better understand the...

Forests, wildlife, property and often human life is endangered when fires break out. Fires strike when the air is hot and the land is dry – and spread when high winds fan the flames. Lightening is the major source of naturally occurring fires. This episode looks at the California fires of 2007, the Los Alamos Re...

Volcanic eruptions are devastating, often killing thousands and displacing many more, yet people continue to reside near active volcanoes as the ash and lava enrich the soil. Some volcanoes lay dormant for centuries, even millennia at a stretch, creating catastrophic consequences when they finally erupt. Mt. Vesuv...

The Sun provides light and warmth that makes our Earth inhabitable. A yellow dwarf star that fuses hydrogen atoms into helium and releases huge amounts of energy in the process, the Sun is serves many functions. Used as an accurate basis for calendars, worshiped as a God and celebrated at Stonehenge, the Pyramid o...

Forests currently account for around 10 per cent of the Earth’s surface; however forests around the world are dwindling due to the demands of an increasing population and industry. Forests are important to the planet’s biosphere as they retain water, preserve soil quality and provide habitat for many species o...

Global warming has resulted in the worlds glaciers breaking away and melting at a rate that cannot be replenished. We travel France, Greenland, Bolivia and Argentina with glaciologists and students, taking core samples and establishing what needs to be done to minimize the devastating effects of glacial melting. T...

Areas of wilderness are parts of the world that have been left untouched by modern man. Some places have survived because they are too harsh to be inhabited by civilization. Others have survived because people have worked hard to preserve their natural beauty. High in the Himalayas, Indian’s Valley of Flowers Na...

Our planet’s untouched natural environments are shrinking, due to pressure from human populations. As these areas decline, the creatures adapted to live in them face a decline in numbers, and sometimes even extinction altogether. Many biologists believe that if we don’t act quickly, half the world’s species...

Deserts cover one third of the world’s land mass, and are growing at an alarming rate. Camels, flamingoes, endangered species and specific flora can be found in arid areas. Encroaching deserts are estimated to affect 250 million people, however for those who have always lived in some of the driest locations on e...
