The season will also feature several household favourites including Michael Mosley in his new series Meet the Humans which puts human behaviour under the microscope. Other highlights include Jimmy Carr’s one off special The Science of Laugher, which tries to get to the bottom of what laughter is and why we enjoy it so much. In August, Joel Dommett and Nish Kumar star in Tribal Bootcamp and go on an adventure of a lifetime to immerse themselves in the lives of the strongest, fittest and toughest people in the world.


Jon Farrar, Senior Vice President of Global Programming, BBC Worldwide commented, “BBC Earth tells the greatest stories on the planet, and there is no greater story than what it means to be human. Being Human is a major new strand of programming that will explore the complexities, wonder, and magnificence of humanity. It will bring entirely new perspectives to the biggest questions of all time – who are we? How do we live better? And what is our future? Being Human is the ultimate view on ourselves – a global selfie”
