The benefits of saving the earth are many. From fresh air to fresh water, a well thought out plan will ensure that the planet’s inhabitants continue to be lucky enough to live on. As for the best ways to go about it, there’s no shortage of ideas. In fact, a recent survey suggests that the UK is the world’s most environmentally friendly nation.
To celebrate the occasion, the BBC is rolling out a series of documentaries spanning several months, starting with the one mentioned below. Among the most notable is the first in a new series called the Natural History Unit. This is a collection of science and engineering related programs dedicated to a range of activities, including identifying, analyzing and preserving some of the most fascinating features of the planet.
On a less glamorous note, the BBC is also launching a new charity, the Save the Earth Foundation, which will be funding conservation and research programs across the globe. A quick browse through the foundation’s website will give you a glimpse at what’s in store for the future. Some of the best examples of what the foundation has in store include a “smart” microscope for the public to learn about DNA, a mobile DNA scanner for the public to learn about bacteriology, and an interactive map of the continents for the public to learn about the tropics.
Finally, the aforementioned new charity is also kicking off a new series of programs titled the “Save the Earth”, which will feature documentary films and live televised events. While a little more than a year old, the series has already seen an impressive uptick in the number of viewers.
