There's no doubt that the nature documentaries of Sir David Attenborough are among some of the best and most informative ever made, drawing millions of viewers from around the world. For many people, Attenborough is the voice of nature documentaries, and only he does it right.
Which is why the news of his latest project will be so exciting to anyone who loves the natural world in all its lush abundance. Attenborough is about to release a brand-new series, entitled: Seven Worlds, One Planet.
The seven-part series will air on Sunday, October 27, and each episode will examine the various different species and creatures living on the seven continents of the planet Earth, with the first episode being set in Antartica.

A press release from the BBC reads: "The series will celebrate the diversity of life on each of these continents, but also feature the many challenges faced by animals in a modern world dominated by humanity."
"By telling unknown, unseen and unexpected wildlife stories, we will uncover the fundamental truth about what makes each one of our seven worlds unique."
Commenting on the upcoming TV event in a recent statement, head of the BBC's natural history unit Julian Hector stated: "Seven Worlds, One Planet takes our viewers on a journey to the seven continents on Earth, discovering what makes each one so special."Watch Sir David Attenborough warn world leaders about climate change:
He added: "I promise new animal behaviour and new perspectives of our natural world including the threats upon it and how some species are adapting to a changing world."
