Earth is full of beautiful sights and each continent has its own impressive locations. Yet across the world, a handful of places are in a completely
different league. Some are famous, some are not; many are remote. We call them Natural Wonders and they are the greatest landscapes on our planet. Everest, the Grand Canyon, Victoria Falls, they seem to have little in common other than – literally – taking your breath away. But they
share one other thing – these remarkable wonders were sculpted, etched or molded by unimaginably powerful energies, unleashed by the Earth.

This landmark series allows viewers to experience these landscapes and get caught up in the incredible stories of inhabitants who have adapted to – and evolved alongside – these mind-blowing environments. These include Sherpas risking their lives to craft a route through hazardous icefall on Everest, Indonesian fisherman working with whale sharks to net their catch in the Pacific’s Ring of Fire and families in Borneo who climb 90 metres or more with no safety nets to reach the ‘treasure’ of the world’s biggest cave.

As well as showcasing the latest and very best science and natural history filmmaking, Earth’s Natural Wonders uses ground breaking graphics and super time-lapse filming to reveal the dynamic forces that formed our planet’s wonderful landscapes and continue to shape our world.
