Life on earth (Television program)

Naturalist David Attenborough attempts to explain where, when, and in what order the earth's more than four million species evolved. Includes a trip to the Galapagos Islands and a visual reconstruction of the path of evolution from the first living molecule to the first fully coordinated, multicelled organisims.

  • "There are some four-million different kinds of animals and plants in the world, four-million different solutions to the problems of staying alive. Life on Earth, the result of a three-year, 1.3-million-mile odyssey to all seven continents, is the story of how a few of those life forms came to be as they are, not as isolated oddities but as elements in a long and continuous story that began billions of years ago. Join me in rediscovering this fascinating tale with specially-created, uniquely-indexed videocas."
  • "Building bodies: Examines 3 types of marine invertebrates whose ancenstry began 600 million years ago, namely jellyfish, mollusks and horseshoe crabs. Shows examples found in Australia's Great Barrier Reef."

  • "Theme and variations: Describes some of the diverse specializations which mammals have evolved to obtain food, to move, to navigate, and in some cases, to communicate."
  • "Rise of the mammals: Traces the early development of mammals, concentrating on the rise of the marsupials."
  • "In this special video edition, naturalist David Attenborough explains how animals and plants should be regarded as elements in a long continuous story that began billions of years ago. It is a vivid and concise survey of the principal forms of animal life and their evolutionary ancestry. An 'evolutionary calendar' has also been specially devised."@en
  • "Describes how four million life forms came to be as they are on Earth, not as isolated oddities but as elements in a long and continuous story that began billions of years ago. Chapter 9 discusses egg-laying mammals, marsupials, kangaroos, and mammals with placentas. Chapter 10 includes tree-shrews, desman, anteaters, bats, whales, and dolphins."
  • "Conquest of the waters: Examines the development of fish from the primitive jawless species to sharks with jawbones and other bony fishes. Includes underwater photography of the hazardous journey of salmon as they return upstream to spawn."
  • "Hunters and the hunted: Examines the struggle between the hunter and the prey. Examples of prey, such as the dormouse, rabbit, prairie dog and antelope, are seen along with the hunters, like leopard, cheetah, and lion, all of which have different hunting strategies."
  • "Histoire de l'évolution des espèces en 13 chapitres intitulés: 1. The infinite variety. 2. Building bodies. 3. The first forests. 4. The swarming hordes. 5. Conquest of the waters. 6. Invasion of the land. 7. Victors of the dry land. 8. Lords of the air. 9. The rise of the mammals. 10. Theme and variations. 11. The hunters and the hunted. 12. Life in the trees. 13. The compulsive communicators."
  • "First forests: Uses microphotography of several primitive plants to show how plant life overcame the difficult problem of migration from sea to land. Also explains how plants and insects were interdependent in their evolution process."
  • "Lords of the air: Explores the uses and advantages of the feather for flight, for insulation and for territorial and courtship purposes. Also looks at the development of large, flightless birds."
  • "Presents the development and natural history of the major life forms found on Earth and illustrates each with specific examples."
  • "Extensive overview of the origins, development and evolution of life on Earth from the primordial soup to modern man, showing the necessary adaptations and conditions that made it possible."@en
  • "Swarming hordes: Describes how successfully insects have developed through eons of evolution. Shows examples of moulting, metamorphosis, camouflage, and social cooperation as seen in termite colonies, beehives and among army ants."
  • "Describes how four million life forms came to be as they are on Earth, not as isolated oddities but as elements in a long and continuous story that began billions of years ago."

  • "Summary: This two video cassettes reveal the magnificent marvels of nature and the secrets of evolution."@en
  • "Invasion of the lands: Examines how marine vertebrates developed legs and lungs and were thus able to move onto the land. Also describes modern day amphibians, such as the salamanders and frogs."
  • ""This series which took three years to make, involved one and a half million miles of travel, and includes some of the most beautiful, breathtaking and ambitious photography ever seen on television, including the unforgetable sequence in which its narrator, David Attenborough, meets a family of wild mountain gorillas"--Container."@en
  • "The development of life on earth is traced by David Attenborough from the smallest of life forms found in the Great Barrier Reef to the hunter-gatherer tribesmen of Papua, New Guinea."
  • "Compulsive communicators: Shows how man's talent for communication has given him the ability to control his environment. Cave paintings in Southern France are seen, along with a primitive group of hunter- gatherers in Papua New Guinea."
  • "Life in the trees: Illustrates how primates solved the problems of life in the tree by the development of binocular vision and grasping hands. Shows examples of lemurs on the island of Madagascar, ground-dwelling monkeys in Japan, chimpanzees on the shore of Lake Tanganyika and mountain gorillas in the highlands of Rwanda."
  • "Condensation of the television series covering the many forms of life on earth and speculating on their origin and evolution."@en
  • "Infinite variety: Explains where, when and in what order the earth's more than 4 million species evolved. Animals on the Galapagos Island, worm fossils in the Grand Canyon and jellyfish impressions in Australia are examined."
  • "Victors of the dry land: A variety of reptiles, the first vertebrates to succeed on land are shown, including tortoises, iguanas, snakes, lizards and crocodiles. The rise and fall of dinosaurs is described, and dinosaur fossils are examined."
