Human Planet

This BBC series is full of some of the most stunning, jaw-dropping, awe-inspiring visuals I have ever seen showcasing mankind's relationship with nature and the struggle for survival played out around the world.  
The clip below clearly speaks for itself, but check out the BBC's own description of the program and their intent for more:
Discover amazing human stories from around the world through television and radio clips from BBC programs such as Human Planet, Amazon with Bruce Perry, and Tropic of Cancer
Human Planet Explorer enables you to browse a selection of clips that showcase man's relationship with the natural environment. 
Human Planet is an awe-inspiring, jaw-dropping, heart-stopping landmark series that marvels at mankind's incredible relationship with nature in the world today.
Uniquely in the animal kingdom, humans have managed to adapt and thrive in every environment on Earth. Each episode takes you to the extremes of our planet: the arctic, mountains, oceans, jungles, grasslands, deserts, rivers and even the urban jungle. Here you will meet people who survive by building complex, exciting and often mutually beneficial relationships with their animal neighbours and the hostile elements of the natural world.
Human Planet crews have filmed in around 80 locations, bringing you many stories that have never been told on television before. The team has trekked with HD cameras and state of the art gear to film from the air, from the ground and underwater. The result: a “cinematic experience” created by world-class natural history and documentary camera crews and programme makers.
