A New Perspective

Episode 1 of 4

From space, we follow elephants struggling through drought, reveal unknown penguin colonies from the colour of their poo, and discover strange ice rings that could endanger seals.

Cameras in space tell stories of life on our planet from a brand new perspective. Satellites follow an elephant family struggling through drought, reveal previously unknown emperor penguin colonies from the colour of their poo, and discover mysterious ice rings that could put seal pups in danger. Using cameras on the ground, in the air and in space, Earth from Space follows nature’s greatest spectacles, weather events and dramatic seasonal changes. This is our home, as we’ve never seen it before.
