The special - a copro between Montreal’s Handel Productions and Endemol-owned UK prodco Darlow Smithson Productions, in association with Discovery Canada – delves into breakthroughs in agriculture, commerce, power, transportation, communication and technology that have led to the development of global networks, as well as the challenges of making such progress sustainable.

Mankind from Space is to air on Discovery Canada on May 3 at 8 p.m. EST/PST. As previously reported, the special is also airing on National Geographic Channels International on May 2.

Alan Handel is serving as executive producer and André Barro is producing for Handel Productions, while Iain Riddick is executive producer and Ed Watkins is producer for Darlow Smithson Productions. Duncan Copp directed the special.
