The Galapágos Islands are a living laboratory - a geological conveyor belt that gives birth to, and sees the death of many species of plants and animals. Presented in a pioneering new visual style combined with exhilarating cinematography, this series examines the spectacular variety of wildlife and evokes the different characters of the islands. As the western islands rise up from the sea offering a chance of life, the eastern islands sink back beneath the waves guaranteeing only death. In the middle islands are fertile, lush lands containing an incredible diversity of life. Nowhere else on the Earth are the twin processes of creation and extinction of species so starkly apparent.
