Seasons

As the Earth goes around the sun, tilting as it does so, it revolves on its axis like a lopsided top. Where we live, and therefore how much sunlight we get at different times of the year, can make a huge difference to our lives and the lives of the animals and plants around us. Spring, summer, autumn, winter, rainy, dry – it all depends on where on Earth you live.


Watch a selection of clips from past BBC programmes that explore how people adapt to the change of the seasons around the world.
