London-based factual producer Atlantic Productions has secured a raft of European sales for the three-part docuseries David Attenborough’s Conquest of the Skies (pictured).

The series has been sold to Norwegian broadcaster NRK, Sweden’s SVT and Sky Italia, while the UK’s Go Entertain has taken home entertainment rights.

As previously reported, ABC Australia and New Zealand’s TVNZ has also acquired Conquest of the Skies.

The 3 x 60-minute series uses high-speed cameras and advanced CGI to show the evolutionary path from insects to flying creatures. Also used is aerial filming with drones, which reveals the techniques birds and mammals use in flight.

David Attenborough’s Conquest of the Skies uses magnificent images to show in the most exciting ways [how] creatures first left the ground and why they’ve developed such an amazing variety of ways to move through the air,” said John Morris, commercial director of Atlantic Productions, in a statement.

“In the fine tradition of David Attenborough’s work, it’s a thrilling and spectacular series for any audience that brings them a totally new way of seeing the natural world,” he added.
