A printer-friendly version of this page

57 minutes
Directed by Sharon Howard and Michael Rosen
Produced by Howard Rosen Productions
Design Director: Greg Pecknold, Flying Spot
Original Music: Steven Ray Allen
Narrated by Peter Coyote



This outstanding program makes effective use of interviews with well-spoken scientists, beautiful photography, top quality graphics, and original music to underline the importance of maintaining biodiversity, if we as a species want to survive and thrive on our home planet.

The program introduces the basic concepts of biodiversity, and takes a close-up look at salmon, rainforests, and marine ecosystems as examples.

Amongst those interviewed are Harvard's Edward O. Wilson, known as the "father of biodiversity"; Dr. Robert Paine, who coined the phrase "keystone species"; and forester Dr. Jerry Franklin.

Many programs call for us all to consume less in order to leave enough room for other species, on whom ultimately our survival depends. Few do it so effectively and positively.

NOTE: This is the version of the program shown nationwide on PBS in connection with Earth Day 2001. It is 11 minutes longer than the original 46-minute version.



Grade Level: 7-12, College, Adult
US Release Date: 2000     Copyright Date: 1999

Reviews
"Astonishingly beautiful documentary...With gorgeous photography, straightforward writing and enthusiastic participation by scientists who don't come off as pedants...a wake-up call that is riveting and startling, but, more important, congenial, considerate and convincing."
Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"A beautifully produced and effective piece."
Edward O. Wilson, Honorary Curator of Entomology, Museum of Comparative Zoology, Harvard University, and author of "Biophilia"
and "The Diversity of Life"
