The three-part series will see four meat-loving families as they share their homes with the animals that would normally end up on their plate.

Over three weeks, the families will learn about the animals they are living with and the impact of their meat-eating habits.

Cutting-edge studies will investigate animal behaviour and intelligence, as well as the farming practices used and the environmental impact of the meat industry.

David Attenborough calls on the public to clean up the seas

Blue Planet II reached over 37m people in the UK alone. Following the final episode, over 60% of people surveyed commented that they wanted to make changes to their life to reduce the impact on the ocean.

The response, said Attenborough, has left him “absolutely astonished.”

“We hoped that Blue Planet II would open people’s eyes to the damage that we are doing to our oceans and the creatures that live in them.  I never imagined that there would be so many of you who would be inspired to want change.”
