11 Cities

Cities are the fastest growing habitat on Earth but, for animals, life in the manmade world is not easy. Some are surprisingly successful - Leopards prowl the streets of Mumbai and Peregrine falcons hunt amongst New York's skyscrapers. Many creatures, however, are struggling to cope in the urban jungle. As the architects of our future will we choose to build cities that are home both for us and for wildlife?

Not Closed Captioned or Subtitled for the hearing impaired. Very disappointing. I'm glad I only bought the first episode, I won't be buying any more. Was really looking forward to the next installment! HHHHmmmm I need 60 more words...Please put subtitles in! Deaf people like to watch T.V. too ya know! I do love the video style though, you can tell it's planet earth from the far away panning and vast views that blow your mind. Wondering how many years over which this series was shot. To show the changing landscapes is mesmerising! You can see how disappointed I am not to be able to watch the 2nd installment...hope you put subtitles in soon!

I love planet earth, but in this series, they added so many sound effects. Creaking wood chair sound when a mouse is climbing grass? Sand bag punching sounds when horses kick each other? Odd sounds indeed.
