  • Sir David Attenborough presents this fascinating look at the landscape, wildlife and plants of the Mediterranean region, charting the area from its first settlers right through to the cityscapes of today. Attenborough looks at man's attitude towards nature from the rise of ancient Egypt to the fall of the Roman Empire, the transformation of the lands around the Mediterranean due to human migration, wars and the growth of trade in medieval times, the discovery of the New World and how the cutting of the Suez Canal introduced new species to the area.
