Human Planet

I have been lucky enough to work with the BBC’s Natural History Film Unit on the making of the amazing new series Human Planet, which is now being shown. It was a real privilege for me to work with Tom Hugh-Jones, the BBC Producer‘ and great that the Manchester Museum was able to support the making of a series that helps people’s understanding of other cultures and which highlights the incredible relationship humankind has with the natural world.

Many thanks to our  frogblog visitor who kindly provided the following info:

The BBC have also produced a version of the Human Planet series for younger children.



Little Human Planet is the little sister series to Human Planet. Each programme follows the lives of young children from around the world, giving the CBeebies viewer a glimpse into how their counterparts live wherever they may be. The programme celebrates how children differ and what makes them the same around the world in a colourful and often surprising voyage of discovery. The films were recorded by the Human Planet team whilst on their journey exploring the variety of human existence across the continents. A challenging and exciting venture for CBeebies, that has produced exceptional insights and beautiful footage which they hope will delight adults and children alike.
