David Attenborough's Seven Worlds, One Planet Released 27 October

David Attenborough's Seven Worlds, One Planet Released 27 October

Wonderful news everybody, David Attenborough's new show Seven Worlds, One Planet is released on 27 October.

The brand-new documentary series took four years to make and will finally hit our screens next Sunday, with each episode looking at a different continent.

Up first is the Antarctica, where 'only the toughest can survive' - viewers will be seeing bull elephant seals, penguins and whales - and witness the hardships they go through day-to-day.

Documentary makers collected 2,000 hours of footage -including amazing drone footage of a volcano - and from that were given the difficult task of trimming it down to around seven hours.

A press release from the BBC reads: "The series will celebrate the diversity of life on each of these continents, but also feature 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."

The show is interwoven with a powerful message about conservation and saving the planet.

Jonny Keeling, the series' executive producer, said they had managed to embed the ideas of conservation into each episode rather than just adding in 'a line about it'.

Julian Hector, head of the BBC's natural history unit, said: "Seven Worlds, One Planet takes our viewers on a journey to the seven continents on Earth, discovering what makes each one so special.

"I promise new animal behaviour and new perspectives of our natural world including the threats upon it and how some species are adapting to a changing world."

Sir David uses the show to bring home the message about the harm humans are doing to the planet, calling it a 'tragic, desperate mess' and urging people to 'look after the natural world, the animals in it and the plants in it too' because it is 'their planet as well as ours'.

At a screening of the first episode Sir David offered up his own advice on how we can do our bit, explaining: "Don't waste things. Don't waste electricity, don't waste paper, don't waste food - live the way you want to live, but just don't waste."

Seven Worlds, One Planet kicks off on BBC One on Sunday 27 October at 6.15pm and will be available to view on iPlayer shortly after.
