This is a fascinating look at how quickly the earth would bounce back without the care...or interference...of people. Much sooner than you would expect!

I really enjoyed this documentary. It was amazing to see how quickly the
world would bounce back without humans. The section on the ocean was especially fascinating!

Hmmm, was looking for the complete seasons 1 & 2.

This documentary starts with the unexplained premise that humans have instantaneously vanished from Earth; and then explores what would happen to what remains. Are humans likely to vanish? The "additional scenes" on this DVD offer several brief scenarios on how it might happen. I think the chances of a complete human extinction are very, very small. The interesting prospect of the evolution of a hominid-like creature to supersede us is considered briefly.

The BBC version of this type of documentary was much better. The narration on this one left a bit to be desired.
The dvd is Interesting enough to spark the mind, but not enough to stick for any length of time.
