Triumph of Life tells the most powerful story on Earth - the story of life itself. This is a story that explains how our planet came to be filled with the stunning diversity of life we see around us, why animals behave the way they do and how the ancient battle for life - in which only winners survive to breed - is still being fought today. An epic tale that has the power to change our perceptions of our planet. We not only explain why there is so much beauty in the world but also how the same force that creates this beauty drives the darker side of nature. Triumph of Life tells to story of evolution as it could never have been told before. Using a combination of cutting edge model effects and superb wildlife photography, we weave together the latest scientific revelations with a fresh and entertaining approach to natural history. We show how genes are the driving force behind both the shape of life and its dazzling array of behaviour. We give a glimpse of how life might look on Earth in the future and whether humans have what it takes to survive the next great threat of extinction.
