Wonders of Life

Synopsis
This series reveals how, 3.7 billion years ago, a few fundamental laws gave birth to the most complex, diverse and unique force in the universe - life. Light, gravity, time, matter and energy are the building blocks of everything, from the smallest microbe on Earth to the biggest galaxy. Today, there are thought to be as many as 100 million different species on Earth. WONDERS OF LIFE tells the story of the diversity and adaptability of life through the laws that govern it.
