BBC Earth released a gorgeous trailer for five new television nature series to look forward to. In January, the first two were announced. Green Planet will consist of five one-hour episodes looking at the world through the perspective of plants. One Planet, Seven Worlds will be a seven-episode series featuring the wildlife of a different continent in each, narrated by by Sir David Attenborough. Last week, we were introduced to three more new series.
Perfect Planet will be a unique fusion of blue chip natural history and earth sciences explaining how the living planet operates. This five part series will show how the forces of nature - weather, ocean currents, solar energy and volcanoes - drive, shape and support Earth’s great diversity of life. It will broadcast in 2020(via Kottke)
Frozen Planet II will take audiences back to the wildernesses of the Arctic and Antarctica. Ten years on from the original Frozen Planet, this series tells the complete story of the entire frozen quarter of our planet that’s locked in ice and blanketed in snow. It will broadcast in 2021
Planet Earth III will be the most ambitious natural history landmark ever undertaken by the BBC. Combining the awe and wonder of the original Planet Earth, the new science and discoveries of Blue Planet II and Planet Earth II, and the immersive character-led storytelling of Dynasties, the series will take the Planet Earth experience to new heights. It will broadcast in 2022
