Human PlanetSeason 1 Episode 6 - Grasslands: The Root Of Power
Grasslands feed the world. Over thousands of years, we humans have learned to grow grains on the grasslands and domesticate the creatures that live there. Our success has propelled our population to seven billion people. But this episode reveals that, even today, life in the 'Garden of Eden' is not always rosy. In Kenya, traditional Dorobo hunters employ a high-risk strategy to benefit from the wildebeest migration. Plus, Namibia's Jo'hansi Bushmen, who wait in hiding for five days to capture a kudu antelope, and modern-day cowboys in Australia who use helicopters to round up more than 20,000 cattle.
