Filmed on six continents in 12 languages, EARTH’S NATURAL WONDERS features stunning photography and daring cinematography. Among the stories told in the series:  a young Sherpa ropes a route across the notorious Khumbu Icefall in time for hundreds of foreign mountaineers who arrive for hunting season; fishermen near Zambia’s Victoria Falls brave crocodiles, elephants and the risk of being swept to certain death to reach exotic and plentiful fishing pools at the Falls’ edge; and a father and son who brave killer bees and man-eating tigers to find prized honey in Bangladesh’s Sundarbands, the largest mangrove forest in the world.
