News recently “broke” that David Attenborough had two new documentary series on the way, courtesy of BBC and PBS and everyone was very excited.

The BBC and PBS one, Green Planet, will focus and the tree and plant life of the world and while that sounds arguably quite boring, I’m almost certain that Sir David will be able to make it dangerously watchable.

One Planet, Seven Worlds is the other offering, and will follow animals across the seven continents, with Attenborough delving into how the different characteristics of each continent affects the lives of the creatures living there.

That one sounds more like my cup of tea.

Anyway, with that news exciting nature doc-junkies all over the world, it was easy to forget that Attenborough already had a show on the way with Netflix.

Our Planet is set to break the mould of nature documentaries, as we’re told:

The ambitious four-year project has been filmed in 50 countries across all the continents of the world, with over 600 members of crew capturing more than three and a half thousand filming days, and will focus on the breadth of the diversity of habitats around the world, from the remote Arctic wilderness and mysterious deep oceans to the vast landscapes of Africa and diverse jungles of South America.

That’s quite a lot of time.

Watch the trailer here…

It does look beautiful, but there’s something disturbing with seeing a David Attenborough documentary that isn’t associated with the BBC.

Our Planet will be on Netflix from the 5th of April this year. Enjoy!
