  • Like all life forms, humanity partially adapts to types of natural environment, yet also tends to change them. Each episode examines how life differs for men and nature in some type of environment, from Arctic to desert and jungle, from coasts to mountains.

  • Humans are the most resourceful members of the animal kingdom, having spread across six continents and being able to adapt to any environment. From the frigid wastes of the Arctic Circle, to the jungles of Southeast Asia and urban metropolises like New York, this series documents how humans live in different habitats and interact with the natural world.
