BBC America released a new trailer for its David Attenborough-fronted Seven Worlds, One Planet ahead of the natural history series premiere on Jan. 18.
Part of British pubcaster BBC’s planet franchise, Seven Worlds, One Planet is the first time BBC Studio’s Natural History Unit has explored all the planet’s continents in a single series.
The previously announced seven part series tells the story of the Earth’s seven continents and how they shape the animal behavior and biodiversity we see today.
Seven Worlds, One Planet features polar bears jumping from rocks to catch adult beluga whales, and a firefly spectacle in North America captured with a motion control tracking time-lapse camera.
Viewers will watch pumas successfully hunting adult guanaco in South America, spidaboo mating dance in Australia, grave robbing hamsters in Europe, an aggregation of great whales in Antarctica and Attenborough with the last two northern white rhinos on Earth in Africa.
Seven Worlds, One Planet is a BBC Studios Natural History Unit production, co-produced with BBC America, Tencent Penguin Pictures, ZDF, France Télévisions and China Media Group CCTV9.
Seven Worlds, One Planet debuts as a multi-network event Jan. 18 on BBC America, AMC, IFC and Sundance TV at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
