Entertainment & Media: David Attenborough Reveals BBC Earth’s “Seven Worlds, One Planet” at Glastonbury Festival


After the massive success of Blue Planet II, David Attenborough is back with a new BBC series that takes viewers into a 360º journey all around the Earth as it showcases the rich diversity of the planet’s seven continents, the stunning creatures that make each one unique, and how, regardless of where they are in the world, these creatures face universal challenges and struggles as they live in a planet dominated by mankind.  

“Seven Worlds, One Planet” is revealed to premiere in 2020 but its trailer was dropped on the last day of the Glastonbury Festival, one of the world’s biggest music festivals, as Attenborough went onto the stage to surprise the crowd of 100,000:

“There are seven great continents on which we human beings live. Each of them has its own marvelous creatures — birds, mammals, animals of all kinds. Each of them has its own glory, each of them has its own problems. We are making the past four years a series about those things — about those seven very different continents.”

The extended trailer features a collaboration between singer Sia and composer Hans Zimmer in a moving music video for “Out There” — the backing track for the new nature series. The powerful song provides a beautiful landscape that takes viewers through a whirlwind of emotions and all over the planet with scenes taken straight from the wildlife. 

As our eyes feast on the wonders of nature — from the deepest and darkest parts of the ocean, to the most mysterious and mystifying corners of the rainforest – our ears absorb such intense levels of music that it’s almost impossible to finish the trailer without feeling some sort of emotion. 

The trailer also shows Mother Nature’s beauty in a different light — one that paints the complex and yet majestic system that keeps the environment flourishing and its inhabitants thriving, how even in the most serene and peaceful places Mother Nature can be unforgiving, and how beautiful life can be whether you’re following one particular animal or observing how the world works from afar.

Asia. North America. South America. Africa. Europe. Australasia. Antarctica. 

Seven continents, seven worlds. One planet.
