*We* Are the Focus of Human Planet (VIDEO)

The producers of Planet Earth and Life know a thing or two about putting themselves in harm's way in order to document the many wonders of Earth and its animal kingdom, but only now have they put their lenses on the most dangerous of subjects: MAN! Discovery and BBC have teamed up once again for another landmark series, but instead of filming weird insects with balloon eyes or frogs that roll down hills, the focus this time around will be on our bipedal brethren and their will to survive in the harshest of climates.



The series has already aired in the UK, and will premiere in the US beginning on April 10. Whereas the UK version was an eight-episode series, the domestic version has been condensed into six episodes and will air over three Sunday evenings with two episodes per night.

I'm very pro-animal when it comes to nature docs, but even though Human Planet won't spotlight fuzzy-wuzzy creatures, this looks nothing short of incredible.

Do you think a nature documentary about humans will be more or less interesting than one about animals?

It is awesome! They really enlightened us with the insights of incredible people in even more incredible places. I loved to see it with a beer on the couch and my headphones on ( the sound also is amazing!)

I gave it a miss, the BBC does animals so well that I stick to those, if I'm watching a BBC doc about people I'd rather see Bruce Parry living with a tribe or travelling around the Arctic, for some reason this didn't interest me when it was on, it did get rave reviews though so I'm sure it's excellent.
