00:
00:40,529 -- 00:00:44,769

A universe of stars shines down

on one special planet.

2

00:
00:49,571 -- 00:00:52,331

Our planet. Our home.

3

00:
00:53,571 -- 00:00:55,851

The only planet we know that has life.

4

00:
01:01,253 -- 00:01:04,934

Life began when the Earth was young

and it started small...

5

00:
01:05,654 -- 00:01:09,055

when one tiny molecule

managed to make a copy of itself.

6

00:
01:15,217 -- 00:01:16,456

Since then...

7

00:
01:16,616 -- 00:01:18,856

since that magical moment...

8

00:
01:19,537 -- 00:01:21,857

life has swept across the globe...

9

00:
01:22,658 -- 00:01:25,378

filling every corner of our world.

10

00:
01:50,745 -- 00:01:55,384

Today there are some 5 million

different species on the planet.

11

00:
01:56,425 -- 00:01:59,546

5 million different ways

of staying alive.

12

00:
02:31,953 -- 00:02:34,913

This is a story that connects us all.

13

00:
02:35,594 -- 00:02:38,314

lt's a story of hope and of triumph.

14

00:
02:48,837 -- 00:02:51,237

A story of our journey through life.

15

00:
03:12,962 -- 00:03:15,082

Every life begins with a birth.

16

00:
03:15,763 -- 00:03:18,882

And every mother must choose

where her baby's life begins.

17

00:
03:35,167 -- 00:03:39,407

A Weddell seal has come to this desert

of snow and ice to have her pup.

18

00:
03:46,169 -- 00:03:48,809

The pup is only a few hours old

and is helpless.

19

00:
03:49,610 -- 00:03:52,090

He is entirely dependent

on his mother.

20

00:
04:15,736 -- 00:04:17,295

lt may be spring,

21

00:
04:17,456 -- 00:04:21,016

but the temperature can still drop

to minus 20 degrees

22

00:
04:21,658 -- 00:04:25,297

and winds of 70 miles an hour

roar across the ice.

23

00:
04:45,702 -- 00:04:49,343

All his mother can do is try to shelter him

with her own body.

24

00:
04:49,504 -- 00:04:51,463

Trust that she can keep

her infant alive.

25

00:
05:03,266 -- 00:05:06,666

So why has she chosen here,

of all places, to have her pup?

26

00:
05:09,427 -- 00:05:12,347

lt's because here,

they're safe from their enemies.

27

00:
05:14,669 -- 00:05:18,748

ln the middle of this vast frozen sea,

no predator can reach her or her baby.

28

00:
05:31,553 -- 00:05:32,712

but there's no food here.

29

00:
05:32,872 -- 00:05:37,913

So the mother keeps this ice hole open,

the only route to her hunting ground.

30

00:
05:38,874 -- 00:05:41,113

And it must become

his hunting ground, too.

31

00:
05:47,276 -- 00:05:49,235

She has to persuade him

into the water.

32

00:
05:50,036 -- 00:05:52,516

He's not keen.

And who can blame him?

33

00:
05:53,877 -- 00:05:57,477

but he soon discovers

this is where he was born to be.

34

00:
06:23,684 -- 00:06:26,884

Now, life's adventure can begin.

35

00:
06:38,487 -- 00:06:39,686

Wherever you look in the world,

36

00:
06:39,847 -- 00:06:41,207

so much of growing up

37

00:
06:41,368 -- 00:06:44,168

depends on the skill and determination

of your parents.

38

00:
06:49,770 -- 00:06:52,249

These snow monkeys

live in a volcanic mountain range

39

00:
06:52,411 -- 00:06:54,010

in the cold North.

40

00:
07:17,696 -- 00:07:21,655

They have wonderfully thick furry coats,

but they still feel the cold.

41

00:
07:21,816 -- 00:07:24,576

And the winter here is hard

on the little ones.

42

00:
07:31,619 -- 00:07:34,659

Some snow monkeys have discovered

there is a better way.

43

00:
07:40,580 -- 00:07:43,780

Steamy hot thermal springs.

44

00:
07:47,143 -- 00:07:49,221

These resourceful mothers

bring their babies here

45

00:
07:49,382 -- 00:07:51,182

to escape the worst of the winter
