David Attenborough will present new landmark natural history series Planet Earth II.
The six-part series comes ten years after Planet Earth redefined history filmmaking.
It will use state-of-the-art technology to help tell the story of our natural world, visiting jungles, deserts, grasslands and cities, and look at how animals survive within them.
Speaking about the new series, Attenborough, who this year celebrates his ninetieth birthday, said: “I am very excited to once again be working with the Natural History Unit on its latest landmark series and am especially looking forward to getting out on location in the next month or so.”
The series, which has been filmed over the last three years, will use the latest camera stabilisation, remote recording and aerial drone technology to bring audiences closer to nature.
Tom McDonald, BBC Head of Commissioning for Natural History and Specialist Factual Formats, added: “Following the success of The Hunt, Great Barrier Reef, and Attenborough And The Giant Dinosaur, I'm delighted that Sir David will be presenting our landmark natural history series for 2016 on BBC One.”
The series, produced by the BBC’s Natural History Unit is a co-production between the BBC, BBC America, ZDF and France Télévisions.
Planet Earth II will air later this year.
