The Fascinating Story Of How Life Conquered The Planet
In this remarkable celebration of life Steve Leonard leads us on a journey that takes us from sea to land to air - on a voyage of discovery and surprises. This series of spectacular and astounding film recreates evolution before your very eyes, as it witnesses the key breakthroughs - and details the crucial moments - in life's journey to dominate the earth.
The first predatory attack, the first legs, eggs and wings are examined using dazzling visual effects, recreating the history of life on the planet - from the first spark to ourselves.
Journey of life reveals how the basic blueprint of a brain, backbone, two legs and two arms was created in the ocean; why crabs took to dry land and what the biggest creature ever to fly - a pterosaur the size of a small plane - really looked like. It examines the relationships - predatory, competitive and co-operative - on which species survival depend; considers the ascent of man in the evolutionary ladder - and determines how, uniquely, we have managed to break free from it.
