Discovery Channel’s LIFE Comes Alive on March 21st

On March 21st Discovery Channel’s LIFE premieres. It’s an 11-part follow up to PLANET EARTH which is the most successful natural history documentary of all time.

“While PLANET EARTH told the story of the natural world through the framework of our planet’s ecosystems and regions, LIFE takes us on a more intimate journey, introducing different animal and plant groups, using the latest in HD filming techniques to show jaw-dropping behaviors never witnessed before. Narrated by Oprah Winfrey and spanning all seven continents, LIFE took over four years to produce and every minute of footage in the series is new.”

Made by the BBC and Discovery, there are some cool previews of the series are below (warning, advert before each one)

  1. Hi, want to set up my recorder to tape the 11 part series LIFE. I understand that the first episode on march 21 will be 2 hours. Please advise if the balance of the episodes will also be 2 hours each so that I can set my recorder up in advance properly. Thank you, Steve


  2. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this series. The extraordinary photography, landscape and the environment hold true to Discovery channel ideals. However, there were wayyyy to many commercial breaks. What a shame when one is totally enthralled by the subject matter only to stop in mid-action for an ad. Too bad this series could not have been sponsored by someone who cared more about LIFE than $$$’s!


    1. I agree, although that’s true about most US TV shows! In the UK it’s on the BBC so you don’t have that problem, but unfortunately someon has to pay for the program in the US!
