Seeing the world from a new vantage point from space as shown on the new PBS series Life From Above gives a new perspective on both the human and natural worlds and shows all the colors and richness of the planet Earth. This thought-provoking four-part series airs on Wednesdays at 10 PM on PBS beginning on October 23.

These kinds of programs are not only informative, but they show how much drama and life exists beyond our gadgets and make viewers gain a new appreciation for our planet.

PBS continues to enlighten and entertain by giving us a program that has the capability of changing the way we see the world we live in. Life From Above, brought about in conjunction with BBC Studios’ Natural History Unit, shows what the earth looks like from space. The big and small elements of life are captured from natural wonders to cities and intimate relationships among animals.

The four episodes are:

Moving Planet–shows big and small ways how the planet is always on the move

Colorful Planet–we often think of the Earth as blue and brown, but there are so many more exquisite hues that make up our world

Patterned Planet– depicts all the unique patterns and colors that each tell a specific story

Changing Planet–explains how this planet is always in a stage of metamorphosis and how these actions look from space.

Watching volcanoes erupt, whales hunt and seeing the effects of weather as well as witnessing artistic expressions as seen from space is a good way to spend some time.

Life From Above airs on Wednesdays, beginning on October 23, 2019 at 10:00 p.m. ET on PBS (check local listings), and the PBS Video App.
