First Life with David Attenborough


After fifty years of broadcasting, Sir David Attenborough goes back to the very beginning of life to reveal an astonishing alien-looking world. If "science is poetry of reality", this mesmerizing feature is certainly a proof of it.

First Life tackles the subject of the origin of life on Earth. He investigates the evidence from the earliest fossils, which suggest that complex animals first appeared in the oceans around 500 million years ago, an event known as the Cambrian Explosion. Trace fossils of multicellular organisms from an even earlier period, the Ediacaran biota, are also examined. The naturalist travels to Canada, Morocco and Australia, using some of the latest fossil discoveries and their nearest equivalents amongst living species to reveal what life may have been like at that time. The series utilises cutting-edge visual effects to reconstruct and animate the extinct life forms.

Set aside to be watched some time. :) Afraid I have no idea what sort of videos you could do now... the "How it's made" series might fit somewhat, though I'm not a big fan of it personally. Could still make a decent space filler till better comes along.
