of space, BBC Earth will bring viewers
face to face with action, ideas and

Earth in Asia is an important step in
BBC Worldwide’s strategy to inspire

    Lands of the Monsoon – A series
    exploring how life around southern
    Asia both endures and depends on the
    tumultuous weather that annually
    transforms the land – the mighty
    monsoon. All life is dominated by this
    rampaging weather system. From
    Tibet to northern Australia, this
    series makes an exhilarating journey
    through the lands of the monsoon.
    Life Below Zero (series three) – The
    icy adventures continue for Life
    Below Zero’s hardy characters, racing
    to prepare for their survival as the
    oncoming winter freeze begins to
    take hold in Alaska. This ratings-
    winning series continues to grip
    audiences as it follows the stories of
    hard-working people living off the
    grid miles from the nearest road.
    Infested – Dr Michael Mosley explores
    the bizarre and fascinating world of
    parasites by turning his body into a
    living laboratory and deliberately
    infesting himself with them. He
    travels to Kenya to give himself a
    tapeworm – a parasite that can grow
    to many metres inside the human gut.
    He also encounters lice, leeches and
    deadly malaria parasites, before
    swallowing a pill-camera to reveal
    what is growing within him. By the
    end of his infestation, Mosley learns
    a new-found respect for these
    extraordinary creatures, which can
    live off and even take control of their
    hosts for their own survival.
