First Trailer For David Attenborough's Seven Worlds One Planet Is Here

First Trailer For David Attenborough's Seven Worlds One Planet Is Here

The first trailer for Seven Worlds, One Planet is here - and it looks like the show will deliver everything we've come to expect of a David Attenborough documentary series.

The minute-long trailer is chockablock with stunning scenery, majestic wildlife and a sprinkling of Sir Dave's dulcet tones; indeed, the only thing a little unusual about it is the Eurythmics' Sweet Dreams cover - which actually works really nicely.

As the name of the show suggests, it will explore life on each of the world's seven continents (which you can try and list off the top of your head right now, if you so wish).

A full synopsis of the show reads: "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 series will celebrate the diversity of life on each of these continents, but also the many challenges faced by animals in a modern world dominated by humanity. By telling unknown, unseen and unexpected wildlife stories, we will uncover the fundamental truth about what makes each one of our seven worlds unique."

Right, so your appetite is well and truly whet now, yes? Well, bad news - we don't know when we get to watch it yet. However, it shouldn't be too long now, as Sir David himself said it would start this year when he announced the show at Glastonbury this summer.

Taking to the Pyramid Stage to a rapturous reception, the 93-year-old said: "The oceans cover two thirds of this planet of ours. There's one third that we occupy all the time, the land, that covers only one third of the globe.

"There are seven great continents on which we human beings live. Each of them has its own marvellous creatures, birds, mammals and animals of all kinds. Each of them has its own glory, each of them has its own problems.

"We have been making for the past four years a series about those things. About those seven very different continents. It starts later on this year. It's called Seven Worlds, One Continent."

With that, there was a slightly muted applause as people grappled with the nonsensical title - and the fact the screen behind him clearly said Seven Worlds, One Planet.

Realising the error of his ways, Attenborough added: "Seven Worlds, I should say, One Planet."

Hopefully it arrives on our screens sooner rather than later.
