For fans of Blue Planet, Planet Earth and anything that features Sir David Attenborough, you’ll be excited to hear that the BBC has a brand new documentary-series out this October.

Attenborough is known as the nature’s guardian grandad and has been mankind’s protector of the planet for almost 100 years having first graced this world in 1926.

A UK national treasure, the broadcaster and natural historian has a colossal 32 honorary degrees to his name from British Universities and has helped to inspire generation after generation with his work in media.

His latest project comes in collaboration with long-serving broadcast buddy the BBC and touches down in October 2019.

Here’s everything you need to know about Seven Worlds, One Planet.

What is Seven Worlds, One Planet?

The brand new Attenborough series focuses on the seven continents and how each continent is distinctly shaped by its unique animal life.

Each episode will focus on a different continent, hurtling across the planet from the sizzling plains of Africa to the frozen waters off Antarctica.

The BBC say:

“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 seven-part series celebrates the diversity of life on each continent while also highlighting the struggle that natural wildlife has faced due to human existence, something our beloved 93-year-old presenter has excelled in bringing to attention over recent years.

Seven Worlds, One Planet: Air date

Episode 1 of Seven Worlds, One Planet launches on Sunday, October 27th on BBC One.

The series will air from 6:15 pm to 7:15 pm.

Episode 1 starts in Antarctica with new episodes airing every Sunday evening in the same timeslot.

Speaking of episode 1, the BBC say:

“Antartica is the coldest, windiest, most hostile continent on planet earth. From Weddell seals that grind back the ice with their teeth, to colourful starfish carpeting the seabed beneath the ice; huge colonies of king penguins crowd any ice-free land, and four-tonne elephant seals fight for territory on the beach.”

Seven Worlds, One Planet has been confirmed for BBC iPlayer, meaning you can catch up with episodes shortly after they finish broadcasting.
