The Northern forests: Trees of the coniferous forests have special adaptations that enable them to survive long cold winters. Many animals that inhabit these vast forests are dependent on the trees for leaves, cones or bark. Further south, in the deciduous woodland, we see how bears, skunks, raccoons, squirrels and opossums put on fat for the winter. Jungle: Attenborough makes a vertical journey down a kapok tree, whose crown emerges above the jungle canopy. He descends through the various layers to the forest floor below finding en route some of the most colorful and extraordinary plants and animals on earth

Worlds apart: Despite their often-small size and isolation many islands are inhabited by wildlife. Attenborough investigates the ways in which plants and animals arrive at these locations and how they survive when they get there. Oceans: This program looks at the oceans, from drowned plains and hidden mountains to the minute drifting plankton and forests of kelp. The food webs of the oceans and the evolution of fish and mammals that live there are featured. New worlds: Humans have changed the face of the planet in many ways, causing willful damage and destruction while also creating new habitats for lants and animals. Adaptability is the key to success and this program looks at the mixed fortunes of a wide variety of wildlife

Episode 10: Theme and variations: A little furry animal from the jungles of South East Asia, called a tree shrew, has attracted great interest from scientists because it shows how a great group of animals may have originated - the mammals. David Attenborough looks at some of the huge variety of mammals. Bats number over a thousand species, many hunt insects, some sip nectar, drink blood, and even catch fish. Contrast those which use sonar with the great whales that sing, the star-nosed mole and the giant anteater, and the potential variations become dramatically clear

Summary: The first in a series of twelve films in which David Attenborough visits some of the earth's distinctive habitats and shows how plant and animal life has adapted to these environments. The programme opens with Attenborough on a valley floor in the Himalayas. Journeying ever upward, he comments on the changing environment and remarks on the presence of fossils of sea creatures on what has been called the roof of the world. To explain how they got there, he travels to Iceland and other countries to consider the colossal forces that have shaped the earth. He explains that this process in an on-going one and, taking the eruptions of Krakatoa and Mount Saint Helens as examples, shows how barren volcanic ash and basalt rock is eventually colonised by increasingly complex forms of life
