Life on Earth

Show Summary

British naturalist David Attenborough examines the diversity and origins of "life on earth." As is usual with David Attenborough's work, the camera work is outstanding and employed techniques which were ground-breaking in their day. Also, as is his custom, Mr. Attenborough filmed this series in locations all across the world. ----------------------- Release dates UK 16 January 1979 ---------------------- Runtime: 702 min (13 parts) Country: UK Language: English Color: Colour Sound Mix: Mono ------------------------------------ Production Companies * British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) (BBC Bristol) * Reiner Moritz Productions (in association with) * Warner Bros.
