History is analyzed, for the most part, in terms of human actions. And yet our natural environment has shaped civilization since the dawn of time. What happens when we scale down our own importance and study history from the perspective of nature? This five-part series reveals the powerful influence of geology, geography, and climate on humanity’s development. With passionate storytelling and extraordinary camerawork, each episode offers a fresh, original take on the growth, evolution, and ongoing progression of Earth’s peoples and cultures—from the birth of agriculture to the industrial revolution and beyond. A BBC/National Geographic-U.S. Co-production in Association with ZDF.

5-part series, 50 minutes each.
