The five-part series from BBC Studios Natural History Unit has been described by executive producer Mike Gunton as “Planet Earth for plants!”

The Green Planet will offer an unseen look into the inter-connected and surprising behaviour of the plant world, where unlikely heroes and emotional stories emerge.

Attenborough will discover plants that can outlive civilisations, and others that could cover the Earth in a matter of months with their ferocious breeding patterns.
