655 The Living Planet
First viewed : January 1984
This was the sequel to Life On Earth, another monumental natural history series put together and presented by David Attenborough. This one was segmented by habitat rather than tracing the evolutionary tree so there was an episodes about deserts , the tundra, the deep ocean, the rain forest and so on. There was a strong ecological message throughout which may have helped the emergence of green issues later in the decade.
Because of my circumstances I wasn't able to watch this as religiously as Life on Earth but I think I've probably seen most of it.
