Episode 6: South America
They are the building blocks of our world. They represent the amazing diversity of nature and culture on our planet. Continents shape our life as we know it today.
The story of the six inhabited continents starts long before the arrival of humankind. The milestones of their geology, climate, flora and fauna have also influenced our path and the evolution of the many faces of human civilisations fundamentally.
Each episode travels back to the birth hour of a continent. Geology, weather, climate, ocean currents, the migration of the species, and human settlement are the milestones of the epic journey each continent takes. It is the unexpected links between the continents that forms the heart of the series.
The six-part series Our Continents reveals a rich treasure trove of remarkable findings that connect history, science, and everyday culture of the world.
