The London-based public service broadcaster, its commercial arm BBC Worldwide and Geldof’s Ten Alps media group are to collaborate on the Dictionary of Man. In a statement, the BBC says the scale and ambition of the anthropological project, which will have an accompanying television series The Human Planet, will be unprecedented. It would use every available medium to create the largest ever living record of films, photographs, anthropological histories, philosophies, theologies, economies, language, art as well as people’s personal stories
