BBC Earth revealed the first look trailer of its Being Human season which over the next 18 months will explore the human race – examining what it means to be human, how we might improve the way we live, and what the future could hold for civilisation.
Created by Hanson Robotics, BBC Earth has partnered with one of the world’s most sophisticated humanoid robots, Sophia, to act as the spokesperson for the new season. In the trailer we see the camera slowly pan from the back of her head to reveal her face as audiences hear her speak about the wonders of humanity. Highlighting that even something as technologically advanced as Sophia can never truly match the complexity of humans.
With Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, Japan and Taiwan putting so much emphasis on brains – we are ranked as the top five brainiest regions, it’s interesting looking into how our brains are wired –one of the themes the Being Human season explores. Other themes include human behaviour, and how to eat and live better. The season launches in Asia on 5 June, with The Brain with David Eagleman, an investigation of how our brain functions and constructs our multi-sensory reality from the silence of our skull.
