H2O: The Molecule That Made Us – 8 September 2021 – 8/9/2021 – Wednesday – BBC Four

Series 1 Episode 3 of 3

Gaza is a microcosm of a world without access to water. As the planet heats up, droughts may have become more commonplace, but that doesn’t mean that water is disappearing.

Storm chasers and photographers track the global changes in giant storms and floods across America. Nasa’s Grace satellites reveal a new map showing global overuse of aquifers. In some places, underground water is being ‘mined’ – finite reserves, which are being used up for profit.

But there are solutions too. New York City uses nature and the Catskill mountains instead of an industrial plant for water treatment, demonstrating a collective appreciation for the importance of water.

About H2O: The Molecule That Made Us

The Earth is alive because of liquid water and the success of our human story is intimately connected to our relationship with this simple molecule. But the growth of our civilisations has created a dangerous dependence on a precious resource that may be about to run out.

This three-part series, narrated by Kelly Ann McEvers, crosses continents to speak to scientists, researchers and individuals impacted by changes in the supply of water, to explore just how critical water is to life and the challenges facing us.

This show is broadcast on BBC Four, also known as the British Broadcasting Corporation.
