    Life After People: The Series

    Follow
    The History Channel
    Life After People: The Series is a speculative documentary TV series developed by the History Channel as a what-if look on what would happen to Earth if humanity no longer existed, including the affect its disappearance would have on not only the environment, the human-made inventions, and any of the human-affected areas of the world. While the cause of humanity’s disappearance is never stated, the series picks up immediately after the departure, showing the slow degradation of manmade constructions like office buildings and bridges and the eventually progression of nature, including the outspread of flora and fauna and the evolution of natural predators, from a day to centuries after the initial loss. Scientists, anthropologists, and other experts give their opinions on what would happen to a number of factors, including deadly viruses, formerly human-controlled populations of animals, buildings and bridges, and machines of war, with each passing year. Each episode also explores sites from around the World that had been abandoned for one reason or another, like the nuclear devastation of Chernobyl, a 900-year-old vacant Cambodian temple, and a geologically instable Italian town of Balestrino. Life After People is an interesting exploration of humanity’s effect on the planet and Earth’s ultimate evolution after we are gone.moreless

    Disney Channel (ended 2007)
    Sadie Hawthorne is a high school student and an aspiring naturalist who loves to study and observe animals and their behavior in their natural environment. So, with magnifying glass in one hand and lip-gloss in the other, Sadie's out to prove that being smart is the new cool. Her desire to study and observe is not limited to animals as she attempts to analyze human beings the same way. Sadie soon discovers that this is difficult because behaviorally, we are all unpredictable. Good thing she has two best friends that are there to help out.

    Sadie Hawthorne's life is a weird and wonderful place, full of freaks of nature. Sadie's dream is to one day go to the rainforest to study bugs and fungus and weird microbes that devour the entire towns, but until then she'll be making her own personal field guide to life.

    Theme Song Sadie (voiceover for Season 1): I'm Sadie and I'm amazed by...everything wild animals, bugs, and even the wilder people in my own life. Guess it just comes...naturally.

    Sadie (voiceover for Season 2): Hey, I'm Sadie. My life is filled with all kinds of weird creatures, from best friends to impulsive brothers. Somehow they all fit together, naturally.

    If I could choose a world for me It'd be open, big, and free I'd pick a place Not like the rest, Not like the rest, It'd be best My world. My place. My friends. I run to you when no one's there. (No one's there) And others stare. There will be, naturally. Performed by Angie Grantmoreless

    BBC Two (ended 2005)
    Rough Science takes five scientists to a remote location where they are set challenges to be undertaken with only basic equipment and whatever they can find or extract from the local environment, although a few special items are sometimes provided. US publicity called it "Survivor meets Junkyard Wars", though Rough Science actually went into production before Survivor. From a British point of view, the show fits into a similar niche to that occupied by the 1980s ratings-winners The Great Egg Race and Now Get Out Of That!, as well as belonging to BBC2's portfolio of "popular science" shows alongside such hits as What The Romans Did For Us and Hollywood Science. The scientists who take on the challenges cover most of the major specializations; the regular team comprises a chemist, a physicist, a botanist, an engineer and a geologist. Rough Science demonstrates how different specialisms can come together to solve scientific problems - or, conversely, how a problem can be solved from more than one angle. What rivalry exists among the scientists is purely of the friendly kind, in fact it's obvious that they're all good friends and their camaraderie is one of the things that makes Rough Science such a success. The team's challenges have thus far always taken place somewhere very hot or very cold. The first series took the original team - including Anna Lewington and Vanessa Griffths, who do not appear in the later series - to a secret island location, and their first task was to work out where in the world they were. For the second series, American Ellen McCallie replaced Lewington as the team's resident botanist, and Kathy Sykes also made her debut, around the same time that she began presenting another series from the same stable, Ever Wondered About Food?. This time the setting was a Caribbean island and the tasks were more technology-based. The third series was a complete contrast. The same team were sent to New Zealand, where they were set tasks on a gold-mining theme. Amid spectacular glaciers, they were set the challenge of finding enough gold to make a piece of jewelery, with four of the six episodes dedicated almost entirely toward this goal. Having used numerous different approaches to find gold (including a search for "buried treasure"!), the team eventually achieved their goal, and the pendant they made was given away in a competition on the Rough Science website. For the fourth series, it was back into the heat. Based near a NASA testing ground on the edge of Death Valley, the team (now including geologist Iain Stewart) faced a series of challenges on the theme of space exploration, with high points including Ellen's "moonwalk" in a spacesuit built from scrap material, and a closing rocket-building challenge with a memorable finale. Note that when shown in the USA, the first two series were combined into one, with the order swapped round so that the second series episodes appeared first. The third and fourth series were similarly combined into a single, 12-episode series when they appeared in the USA the following year. Jonathan Hare's website provided details of filming dates for the various series.moreless
