A stunning new BBC series 'The Human Planet' is on the way. It's nice to know that in this age of CGI, there are still shots of the natural world that can take your breath away.

Trailer here. (http://www.youtube.com/watch_popup?v=2HiUMlOz4UQ&vq=large)

Is it only just on the way? I thought this was shown on the BBC a few months ago? I can remember reading in the TV pages that the next episode was going to be one with the guys in the icy region who hunt with the eagles and it sounded really intriguing but then I went and missed it.

Very cool. Just waiting for Cameron to sell off the BBC archives to the highest bidder now...

If this is the same series as the one on Discovery channel, I saw the one about the Tibetan dude taking his kids to school...40 miles away across the Himalayas and they had to sleep in caves. Pretty impressive. They've got us all beat in terms of the "uphill both ways with 6 foot snowdrifts".
