Human Planet – Life In Thin Air Ep 5/8

High Definition programme

8.00-9.00pm BBC ONE and BBC ONE HD

From active volcanic mountains in the South Pacific to the highest communities in the Himalaya and the wilds of Mongolia, mountains can be the harshest environments on Earth, and they are explored in the latest episode of the landmark natural history series Human Planet.

Weather shifts from tropical to arctic in just a few hours and the higher the altitude, the harder it is to breathe.

In the Mongolian Altai Mountains a remarkable hunting technique is passed on from father to son. Sailau Jadik teaches his son, Berik, to find and capture a baby eagle from the wild. In a spellbinding sequence, they horse ride across the mountains, hunting fox, helped by the now trained eagle.

On a quest for sulphur in Indonesia, brave men enter a live smoking volcano and battle poisonous gas clouds. And, in Nepal, a woman who has been blinded by powerful, high-altitude sunlight has her vision restored by an inspirational surgeon.

In mountainous terrain, it's not just the harsh environment that challenges humans' very existence; they also have to compete with wildlife for scarce resources. Captured on film for the first time, an Ethiopian boy is seen battling to protect his crops from vicious monkeys with teeth larger than a lion's.

In another TV first, Papuan tribesmen reveal a remarkable technique to capture fruit bats flying through the mountains by cutting a "doorway" through the forest.

Even in death, the frozen mountains can present the harshest of challenges. The lack of wood makes the cremation of bodies impractical so the Tibetan sky burial "recycles" the body. Vultures are used to dispose of the corpse in a unique and moving ceremony.

The Behind The Lens diary sequence features the filming of the Mongolian eagle hunters, using eagle-cam – an HD camera mounted on the back of a golden eagle.

On BBC Radio 3, Andy Kershaw and Lucy Duran present Music Planet, a companion series featuring some of the music from Human Planet's locations.

Human Planet is simulcast in HD on BBC One HD on Freesat channel 108, Freeview channel 50, Sky channel 143 and Virgin Media channel 108.

Lunch Monkeys Ep 2/6

High Definition programme
Thursday 10 February
10.30-11.00pm BBC THREE and BBC HD

Mike is sent into a panic when Gloria calls in sick on the day he has a major presentation with some important clients, as the comedy series set in a personal injury law firm continues. In desperation, he asks Shelley to be his PA for the day. Shelley's not overwhelmed at first but has a change of heart when she realises she will be in charge of refreshments for the event. With banana butties, cheese spread and crisps on the menu, Mike really doesn't know what he's let himself in for.

Elsewhere, Kenny and Tania are still loved up and the new couple can't keep their hands off each other. Their antics are beginning to get on everyone's nerves. Asif seems to be the only one who is happy to see them together and appropriately names them Kenia.

Meanwhile, Darrel is besotted with Mike's daughter, Ava, who is doing some work experience in the office. His efforts to impress her do nothing but wind up Mike. It's not long before things come to a head and Darrel and Mike have a run-in. Darrel is left in a quandary as he's sure Ava is his true love, but he doesn't want to jeopardise his "career".

Mike is played by Nigel Havers, Gloria by Sian Reeves, Shelley by Rachel Rae, Kenny by Christian Foster, Tania by Jessica Hall, Asif by Abdullah Afzal, Darrel by Chris Hannon and Ava by Caroline Read.

Lunch Monkeys is simulcast on the award-winning BBC HD channel – the BBC's High Definition channel available through Freesat channel 109, Freeview channel 54, Sky channel 169 and Virgin Media channel 187.
