Storyline

Mountains are the most prominent products of the immense forces which shape the living planet: tectonic drift, volcanic activity and erosion by wind, water, frost and precipitation. We see how wildlife adapts to the harsh, often extreme conditions in various types of mountain ranges, such as Gelada baboons on a suddenly volcano-pushed Ethiopian peek, pumas in the Andes, grizzly bears in the Rockies, snow leopards in the Himalaya.

Quotes

[first lines]
David Attenborough - Narrator: Human beings venture into the highest parts of our planet at their peril. Some might think that by climbing a great mountain they have somehow conquered it. But we can only be visitors here. This is a frozen, alien world.

The series' best episode (of these I've seen)
18 August 2019 | by yavermbiziSee all my reviews

There are many things that make this particular episode so much better than the rest. It starts with more of a geographical/geological focus than the usual biological emphasis of the series. It then acquaints the viewer with a host of amazing creatures with which I, at the very least, wasn't familiar - from grass-eating Ethiopian highland primates to the graceful Alpine snow leopard. The scenery is breathtaking and incredible, further underscoring the amazing abilities of the animals living in such an environment. Last but not least, the music is praiseworthy, especially in the segment where the Alps and their glaciers are presented to the viewer. The stunning, austere world of the mountainous regions across the world is more than done justice by this episode, and the series' usual shortfalls don't take away from the experience.
