Life From Above: Moving Planet Combo

Combo includes Live From Above 2-DVD Set and Life from Above: Epic Stories of the Natural World book.

Life From Above is an ambitious new 4 part documentary series that provides fascinating and fresh insights into our planet by expanding the range of perspectives from which to look at it. In addition to stunning satellite photography from space, drones were employed to generate footage, while helicopters and cameras on the ground provide more conventional vantage points. Using innovative techniques to illustrate the complex interconnectivity of our planet, Life From Above is going for the big picture.  What is revealed from above is a cadence - the rhythm by which the earth moves, colors and visual patterns - and the planet’s constant evolution. 

With more than 200 spectacular images, including astonishing satellite photographs and stills from the BBC Natural History Unit's footage, Life from Above reveals our planet as you've never seen it before. Thanks to advanced satellite images, we can now see the earth's surface, its megastructures, weather patterns, and natural wonders in breathtaking detail. From the colors and patterns that make up our planet to the mass migrations and seismic changes that shape it, Life from Above sheds new light on the place we call home. It reveals the intimate stories behind the images, following herds of elephants crossing the plains of Africa and turtles traveling on ocean currents that are invisible unless seen from space.
