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

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
