Life on Earth is wildly diverse – and we’ve only begun to scratch the surface. It is believed that there are between 5 and 100 million different species of life on our planet. So far, man has managed to identify and classify less than 2 million of these. There’s Something About Species takes a light-hearted but earnest look at the exotic and the everyday – the complex and constantly growing Tree of Life. From the humble amoeba to homo sapiens himself, we trace 700 million years of evolutionary change in under 90 minutes. This offbeat documentary tracks down what we know and how we know it. Using a live presenter, animated sequences, 3-D computer graphics, morphing and every manner of playful manipulation, we take elaborate scientific knowledge and make it accessible to viewers of all ages. Enjoy a refreshing new approach to scientific research. There’s Something About Species… that will give you a whole new appreciation of the living world!
