Cameras in space tell stories of life on our planet from a brand new perspective. At a time when the Earth’s surface is changing faster than ever in human history, watch cities grow, forest disappear and glaciers melt. In the ever-growing grey of cities, one man is feeding thousands of parakeets; in Sumatra, a female orangutan and her daughter face life in a forest under threat; while in Tanzania, local people use satellites to replant a forest, securing the future for a family of chimpanzees. This is our home as we’ve never seen it before.
