Sir David Attenborough (pictured) is to front a third 3D documentary for UK pay-TV network Sky 3D, teaming up with Atlantic Productions for a series looking at London’s botanical landmark Kew Gardens.

Work has already begun on the three-part, hour-long seriesĀ – tentatively titled Kew 3D – which follows on from the BAFTA-nominated Flying Monsters 3D and the tentatively titled Penguins 3D.

The former aired over Christmas last year, while Penguins is currently in production and due for delivery in time for Christmas this year.

A spokeswoman for Atlantic told realscreen: “A series is being filmed with David at Kew for Sky, and we will have more details in due course.”

Located between Richmond and Kew in southwest London, Kew’s Royal Botanic Gardens are home to some 121 hectares of listed gardens and botanical glasshouses, containing more than 30,000 different kinds of plants.
