Documentary & Factual - Environmental and Wildlife

Millions of years ago incredible forces ripped apart the Earth’s crust creating seven extraordinary continents. Seven Worlds, One Planet presented by Sir David Attenborough, reveals how each distinct continent has shaped the unique animal life found there. The series features remarkable, new animal behaviour from all the continents including the baking plains of Africa and the frozen waters off Antarctica. In Asia, the biggest of all continents, we showcase life at the extremes, whilst in Europe we reveal surprising wildlife dramas hidden right alongside us. This series celebrates the diversity of life on each of these continents, but also the many challenges faced by animals in a modern world dominated by humanity. By telling unknown, unseen and unexpected wildlife stories, we uncover the fundamental truth about what makes each one of our seven worlds unique.
