A decade ago Planet Earth redefined how we viewed the world and the wildlife it contains. Planet Earth II promises to raise the bar even higher.
Sir David Attenborough is the unmistakable voice of the Planet Earth series. With its astounding debut a decade ago, a new ground breaking series – Planet Earth II – is set to be released in 2016 with Sir David back providing the narration once again.
The new six-part series that will debut on BBC One was filmed over the course of three years, using the latest technology, and will travel across forests, mountains, desserts, grasslands, and cities to bring an unparalleled and never-before-seen glimpse into our natural world. Best of all, it will be shot in stunning UHD, and will utilize the latest camera stabilizations, advanced aerial drone technology, remote recording and more.
David Attenborough says: “I am very excited to once again be working with the Natural History Unit on its latest landmark series and am especially looking forward to getting out on location in the next month or so.”
“[The] epic scale and ambition of this series is second to none,” series executive producer Mike Gunton explained. “It will be a truly immersive experience, providing audiences with a unique perspective on the most extraordinary places and animals on our planet.”
The original series was one of the most expensive documentaries ever made. With the technology being employed in Planet Earth II, the bar will surely be raised even higher.
