Witness the planet's most
breathtaking natural events, and follow the dramatic wildlife
stories behind them. Combining the epic cinematography of Planet
Earth, with all the emotion, intimacy and storytelling of a wildlife
diary, this series charts the effects of global climatic phenomena
which transform entire landscapes, drawing in thousands of animals
and determining their fate.
Whereas Planet Earth gave
us a global view, Nature's great events delves into the more
personal, emotionally engaging approach. Nature's great events
brings us the same high definition quality and 'wow factor' images
we've come to associate with PLANET EARTH.
"Nature's Great Events" is a landmark television series showcasing
our planet's most spectacular natural events and the global climatic
phenomena which transform entire landscapes, drawing in millions of
animals and determining their fate. The series combines the epic
scale of the BBC One's "Planet Earth" with the intimate, emotional
stories of individual animals as they struggle to survive.
Each episode is set in a different location on our planet and shows
how immensely powerful natural forces can drive chain reactions
involving everything from microscopic organisms to entire tracts of
rainforest, ultimately culminating in a spectacular natural event.
From the flooding of the Okavango Delta in Southern Africa,
attracting great herds of near starving elephants into the jaws of
waiting lions, to the melting of the Arctic ice disrupting hunting
polar bears, this television series follows the fortunes of a few
key characters before during and after each great event.
Nature’s Great Events takes up the mantle left by the stunning BBC
series Planet Earth, and offers a closer look at some of the most
fascinating and dramatic natural happenings on the planet. Narrated
by David Attenborough, it digs in some detail into the impact on
nature of certain events, and manages to hone in on small stories in
the midst of major happenings. It’s a breathtaking cocktail.
What particularly lifts Nature’s Great Events too is the stunning
photography. Those who recall Planet Earth will recall just how
superb the shots within that frequently were, but if anything,
Nature’s Great Events tops it. The cinematography here is
world-class, and it greatly enhances the series around it as a
That said, there’s more than enough substance to Nature’s Great
Events as it stands anyway. Diligently made and researched, and
presented in an accessible, yet not condescending manner, it’s
another major success for the BBC in this area, and further cements
why it’s a world leader where natural history documentaries are
Credit must go too for the decision to include the making-of
material. Back when the BBC broadcast The Blue Planet, these were
often just as interesting as the main feature itself, and the same
is true here. It’s a genuinely fascinating insight into the
production of such an ambitious, and unmissable, series. --Jon
