Planet Earth’s Season 1, which originally aired in 2006, was so spectacular that re-runs of these episodes that were aired for the first time approximately 5 years ago are still airing on today’s television channels. Planet Earth is not only educational, it’s obviously quite enjoyable to watch as well as it shows viewers the deepest beauty of the earth we inhabit. Most of the beauty of our earth is commonly unknown and or is only present to many in the form of pictures, videos or experiences others have shared because they have personally explored it.
Episode 3 of Planet Earth, “Fresh Water,” allows viewers to observe the beautiful fresh water of our planet. In this episode, Planet Earth guides viewers through numerous fresh waters in which many are unaware of their locations, uses, and actual importance to the survival of many wildlife. Fresh water plays a very large role in erosion and even has an effect on the planet’s weather. Many of these facts are unknown by viewers, which is why Planet Earth does such an amazing job at incorporating critical facts while still portraying the earth’s magnificent beauty. This episode navigates through rivers, water falls, and lakes and explains the significance of fresh water for many wildlife, reasons such as hunting, drinking and swimming. Many assume fresh water is only critical for drinking; however, with the help of Planet Earth, many viewers learn many more reasons as to why it is important and also many other facts that probably would have remained unknown.
Episode 7, “Great Plains,”exposes viewers to many open plains across the earth that consist of lowland and highland plateaus. This episode takes you through the descriptions of these great plains and also the numerous wildlife that inhabit these areas. These areas are known for their grasses which are critical to the survival of some of the earth’s wildlife. This episode also catches some of the most breathtaking acts of wildlife, such as mass migrations. The annual migration of the Mongolian gazelle was actually captured and displayed in this episode. Events like this that are rarely ever seen or captured on tape are demonstrated all throughout this episode and many other episodes of Planet Earth and really keep viewers interested while educating them as well.
