How well do we know our Planet?
Take a tour of our home as we have never seen it before.
Using the sun as a guide, we set out on a truly global journey. On the way, we meet three mothers struggling to bring up their young. In the Arctic, a polar bear and her two newborn cubs awaken to the first sunlight of spring. Will they find food before the ice on which they live melts?
Half a world away, in the heat of the Kalahari, an elephant mother and her calf find water after a danger-filled trek across the desert. But they must share the pool with a pride of lions.
For the final leg of the journey, we follow a humpback whale mother. She must keep her calf safe on their 4,000 mile migration from the equator to Antarctica.
And so life on Earth goes on. A story played out billions of times a day, 365 days a year, as the Earth moves through seasons, every living creature bending to the power of the sun.
