Ang Life After People ay isang serye sa telebisyon ng History Channel na kung saan ang mga siyentipiko, inhinyero sa estraktura, at iba pang mga dalubhasa ay nagbubulaybulay tungkol sa kung ano ang mangyayari sa Daigdig kapag biglang nawala ang sangkatauhan. Pinag-uusapan ng mga tinampok na dalubhasa ang tungkol sa magiging bunga ng kawalan ng tao sa kalikasan at mga bakas ng kabihasnan na naiwan. Ang mga serye ay inunahan ng isang dalawang oras na espesyal na isinahimpapawid noong Enero 21, 2008 sa History Channel na nagsilbing totohanang pilot para sa mga serye na unang ipinalabas noong Abril 21, 2009. Ang dokumentaryo at mga sumunod na serye ay kapuwang isinalaysay ni James Lurie.
Batayan[baguhin | baguhin ang batayan]
Hindi nagbibigay ang palabas ng ispekulasyon kung paanong maglaho ang sangkatauhan, at tinutukoy nito na nangyari o naganap na ito nang biglaan, kung kaya naiwan ang lahat ng mga bagay kabilang na ang mga alagang hayop at domestikadong hayop na kinakailangang mangalaga at magsustento sa kani-kanilang mga sarili. Ang eksperimentong isip ay nakabatay sa mga naitalang bunga ng biglang pagtanggal ng mga tao mula sa isang lugar at ang mga bunga na naganap kapag hindi tinuloy ng tao ang pagpapanatili ng mga gusali at imprastrakturang urban. Nagsisimula ang pagsasalaysay sa katanungang:
|“||What would happen if every human on Earth disappeared? This isn't the story of how we might vanish...it's the story of what will happen to the world we leave behind||”|
Ang mga kabanata ng serye ay nagbibigay ng mga halimbawa ng pagkabulok sa imprastrakutrang urbano at biyolohiya. Ang pagtuon ay sa mga tiyak na lokasyon tulad ng mga tukudlangit, istrakturang panrelihiyon tulad ng mga simbahan, tulay, saplad at mga gusaling pampamahalaan, at ang magiging tadhana ng mga kaugnay na bagay tulad, ng mga artipakto, dokumento at katawan ng tao. Nakalakip din ang kapalaran ng ilang uri ng mga halaman at hayop. Bawat kabanata ay may isang bahagi na kung saang sinusuri ng mga dalubhasa ang mga tunay na lokasyong iniwan na ng tao, kabilang na ang mga ghost town at ibang mga sityo ng pagkasira, kung saan ang pagkasira ay dulot ng mga pangyayaring kahalintulad ng mga inilalahad sa kabanata. Bagaman pinag-uusapan ng serye ang mga magiging kalaparan ng mga kilalang pook-palatandaan (landmarks) sa mundo, ang pangunahing tuon ay sa mga sitwasyon na maaaring maganap sa mga lokasyon sa Estados Unidos.
Ang maraming mga kaganapan maaaring maganap pagkaraang maglaho nang biglaan ang mga tao ay ipinapakita gamit ang mga dramatisasyong CGI (computer-generated imagery). Ang timeline ng mga hinulaang kaganapan ay nagsisimula sa mga isang araw pagkaraan ng paglaho ng sangkatauhan at magtutuloy hanggang sa sandaan-milyong taon sa hinaharap (isang araw, isang linggo, isang taon, 10 taon, 15 taon, 25 taon, 50 taon, 100 taon, 200 taon, atbp.).
Tagline[baguhin | baguhin ang batayan]
Ang tagline ng palabas ay ang sumusunod na nagbabantang pagbati (sa Ingles):
|“||Welcome to Earth...Population: Zero.||”|
Habang ang lahat ng mga kabanata ay nagtatapos sa pamagat na umaangkop sa huling pangungusap:
|“||...in a life after people.||”|
Latinoamérica sin humanos[baguhin | baguhin ang batayan]
May isang bersyong Latinong Amerika ng palabas na ipinalabas sa History Latinoamerica, na may pamagat na Latinoamérica sin humanos. Pinag-uusapan ng palabas ang mangyayari sa Latinong Amerika, lalo na sa Arhentina, Brasil, Tsile, Kolombya, Mehiko at Benesuwela, kapag naglaho nang biglaan ang sangkatauhan.

The NORAD operations facility comes under assault, the echo chambers below the foundation of the Capitol Records Building in Los Angeles outlasts the structure's downfall. The subterranean Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico is repopulated by bats, the gypsum crystals inside the Naica Mine grow unchecked, and mankind's former geothermal power sites such as the Geysers in northern California relinquish their strength to geologic forces. The Satellite Transit System at Seattle's airport is disabled and the Underwater Sculpture Gardens outside of St. George's, Grenada are taken a hold of by coral reefs. Prairie dogs reclaim their territory in Lubbock.
