Life From Above Cameras in space tell stories of life on our planet from a brand new perspective, revealing its incredible movements, colors, patterns and just how fast it is changing. This is our home, as we've never seen it before.
Moving Planet: Our planet is constantly on the move, from individual animals to powerful weather systems. Follow the black shadow of a total solar eclipse and marvel as thousands of Shaolin Kung Fu students perform in perfect synchronicity.
Colorful Planet: In a kaleidoscope of color, swirls of phytoplankton trigger an oceanic feeding frenzy, China turns yellow as millions of flowers bloom and at night the waters off the coast of Argentina are spotted with mysterious green lights.
Patterned Planet: From space, earth's surface is covered in weird and wonderful shapes. Wombats design their own landscape in Australia and hundreds of forest elephants create a tear in the endless green of the Congo forest canopy.
Changing Planet: See how fast our planet is changing. Cities are growing, forests are disappearing, and glaciers melting - but in Tanzania locals have regenerated the landscape, saving a family of chimpanzees.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
