Who is narrating A Perfect Planet?
The celebrated broadcaster and environmentalist Sir David Attenborough returns to the BBC to narrate this series.
What is A Perfect Planet about?
This series focusses on the natural forces which shape our planet, and enable life to flourish here: the sun, volcanoes, oceans, and weather. In addition, the programme takes a look at how humans have impacted the planet and its environments and wildlife.
“Together, these forces have shaped our perfect planet, but it’s a fragile system.” says Attenborough in the trailer. “Today there is a new force. One so powerful, it threatens life on Earth. Human activity is now so dominant that it’s disrupting the forces of nature, and the vital habitats that life needs to survive on Earth. To preserve our planet, we need to act now. And if we do that, there will still be time to restore the ecological balance that once made this Earth our perfect planet.”
