BBC Earth will explore what it means to be human in its new strand of programming ‘Being Human.’

Over the next 18 months, the series will examine humanity, how we might improve the way we live and what the future of civilization could hold.

The ‘Being Human’ season will include new series such as Meet the Humans (5×50) which examines human behavior; British comedian Jimmy Carr’s one-time special The Science of Laugher, (1×60) which tries to solve what laughter is and why we enjoy it so much; Civilisations (9×55) which looks at the role of art and artists in the development of human culture; and Tribal Bootcamp (6 x50), starring comedians Joel Dommett and Nish Kumar as they immerse themselves alongside the lives of the strongest, fittest and toughest people in the world.

BBC Earth has partnered with Hanson Robotics, who created one of the world’s most sophisticated humanoid robots, Sophia, to act as the spokesperson for ‘Being Human.’
