Making Planet Earth
Series creator Alastair Fothergill and producer Jonny Keeling spent five years working on the documentary to give a rare glimpse into the animal kingdom. After speaking with scientists and working for a year to plan, dozens of cameramen captured magical moments in more than 200 countries on all seven continents.
The result is a collection of scenes from the vast tapestry of Earth—from high above the treetops to the dark depths of the sea. Cutting-edge technology allowed the team to go where few humans dare to capture the sights and sounds of the living planet.
