If you’ve been searching for a new travel show to reignite your love of adventure, you’ll only have to wait until next week. On October 27, a new David Attenborough series called Seven Worlds, One Planet will debut on BBC, and it aims to illuminate each of the seven continents through their diverse wildlife and landscapes.
Attenborough introduced the series earlier this summer at the Glastonbury Festival, saying, “The ocean covers two-thirds of this planet of ours, the land only covers one-third of the globe. There are seven great continents on which we human beings live. Each of them has its own marvelous creatures — birds and mammals, animals of all kinds.”
Along with the announcement, Attenborough premiered a trailer — featuring music by Hans Zimmer and Sia — that’s sure to get you fired up about the new series.
Attenborough has been working on this show with the BBC for the past four years, and views it as a successor to the popular Blue Planet series. Much like The Blue Planet, the show’s message will be to encourage and inspire people to look after our planet, and the natural world that has become our duty to preserve.
