Whether you have a clear interest in nature documentaries, or because you appreciate the calm, serene sound of a national treasure’s voiceover, there’s no beating an Attenborough doc.
His new show, ‘Seven Worlds, One Planet’ looks like another for the records. Focusing on the history of continents and their effect on shaping the animal kingdom, it’s set to explore all the continents in a single series for the first time.
Sounds like one heck of a journey.
In terms of the show’s official synopsis, we’re told that “millions of years ago, incredible forces ripped apart the Earth’s crust creating seven extraordinary continents. Seven Worlds, One Planet, presented by Sir David Attenborough, will reveal how each distinct continent has shaped the unique animal life found there.
“This series will feature remarkable, new animal behaviour from all the continents including the baking plains of Africa and the frozen waters off Antarctica. In Asia, the biggest of all continents, we will showcase life at the extremes, whilst in Europe we will reveal surprising wildlife dramas hidden right alongside us.”
The show is due to begin on 27th October, which is only a matter of weeks away!
So before getting spooky for Halloween, you can get snuggled up and go on a historical journey through the wonders of our environment with the soothing commentary of our friend David.
The answer has never been simple! Just tune in to BBC1 on 27th October.
Furthermore, episodes will be available following broadcast in Ultra High Definition. For viewers in the UK, they’ll also be immediately available to watch via the BBC iPlayer.
The Premiere for Seven Worlds, One Planet took place in Leicester Square, London, on 9th October, and it’s safe to say that since then people have been rather excited:

Much of the content will probably be well beyond my realm of intellect, but I’m still pretty sold on it.
