Planet Earth II Episodes:

- Dry Worlds Water may be the essence of life in the desert but it is also a source of great conflict.
- High Worlds Only the toughest can survive in a place half way towards outer space.
- Island Worlds With little competition, an island existence may seem idyllic, but isolation comes at a price. Adapting to new ways of life takes time.
- Open Worlds On the world’s vast and open grasslands, the best tactic seems to be eat and try not to get eaten.
