This show is set in a Doctor’s office. Earthy (Planet Earth) arrives for a regular check-up and unfortunately the Doctor discovers that Earthy is suffering from a few health concerns. With help from the audience and short information videos from a range of environmental scientists we investigate Earthys land, air and oceans and the Doctor creates a prescription that should help Earthy feel better.
This show is a great starting point to discuss some of the environmental issues facing our planet and what we as individuals can do to help. Operation Earth looks at the pollution in both the air and water and the impact of low biodiversity levels.
