Human Planet

The soul of a journey is liberty, perfect liberty, to think, feel, do just as one pleases

After a year and a half of non-stop traveling with Human Planet, it appears that for me this particular journey is now over.

It’s been an amazing experience and one that has brought me into contact with our incredibly diverse species across almost every inhabitable environment on the planet.  I’m sure you won’t be too surprised to learn that I can report back that human beings are the same the world over… individuals dealing with their own versions of personal struggles to secure food, find a mate, put a roof over their heads and protect their offspring.  I’m also sure that you won’t be too shocked to discover that no matter where I went in the world, doors were opened to me, food was shared with me, knowledge was exchanged freely and help was offered unconditionally.

I’ve really enjoyed blogging about my experiences… so much so in fact that I have decided to continue doing it on my own website. So, if you would like to carry on following my travels and read about the other work I do outside of the BBC, then please click HERE, or alternatively you can join me on Facebook.

In the meantime, I will leave you with my personal Top 40 roundup of favourite photos from my Human Planet journey to remind you of some of the amazing stories that will be appearing on the programme when it hits your screens in January 2011.

    Though most greetings cards publishers write their very own verse
    too most will not less than think about submissions because it is a supply of
    new and original ideas.

    You can also call them to ask about upcoming listings that might not be posted yet.

    What makes it even better is that I can avoid having to look at unnecessary ads while I am doing so, as I am in so
    many other places on the Internet. These e – Bay partners help them promote their products and the business owner gives the e – Bay partner a piece
    of the earnings.
