  • "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."
  • "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."
  • "Condensation of the television series covering the many forms of life on earth and speculating on their origin and evolution."
  • "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."
  • "Hosted by David Attenborough, this natural history program describes early life forms and how various species adapted and evolved."
  • "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."
  • "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."
  • "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."
