Planet Earth III | Preview (BBC One)
Sir David Attenborough presents Planet Earth III, a brand new Natural History series for BBC One and iPlayer.
Journeying to the far reaches of our planet, this eight part series follows some of the world’s most amazing species, telling extraordinary stories that are dramatic, thrilling, funny and sometimes heart-breaking, but always full of hope.
Filmed over the course of nearly five years, the new series uses pioneering filmmaking technology to reveal the greatest wonders of life on earth.
Lightweight drones, high-speed cameras and remotely operated deep-sea submersibles transport viewers to spectacular unseen landscapes, from remote jungle to scorching deserts, and from the darkest caves to the depths of the ocean.
Nearly two decades since the original series of Planet Earth aired on BBC One, we see how science and technology has advanced, but also how our planet has changed.
We’ve reached a critical point in our planet’s history and the natural world has changed more over the past few decades than ever previously observed in our human history. These changes have been felt across every ecosystem and by the countless creatures that we share this planet with.
In episode 1, David Attenborough looks at the world’s coasts - dangerous frontiers ruled by powerful forces, where animals battle to survive amidst constant change.
Planet Earth III begins Sunday 22nd October at 6:20pm on BBC One.
