In this programme, we see first-hand what the impact of human behaviour is on wildlife and the way we have caused huge damage to life on earth. However, it is not completely doom and gloom, the programme visits Bikini Atoll, Panama, Norway, Mozambique and China and documents the ability of nature to resist.

The extent of nature’s resilience, and its adaptability in the face of extreme threat is astonishing. We see that ecosystems devastated by human beings can be revived, with the right care, and how human prosperity is still achievable even when working as a part of, and with respect to nature’s limits.
