Sir David Attenborough's latest adventure takes a look at life on our planet, one continent at a time
It looks at the planet’s wildlife by continent, starting with Antarctica (Sunday, 6.15, see our TV Guide for full details).
The remarkable sequences include drone footage of killer whales hunting a penguin, extreme close-up shots of an albatross chick blown out of its nest by extreme weather, a large “aggregation” of whales, and huge elephant seals fighting over territory in mating season.
Unsurprisingly, the series comes with a warning about how human activity is impacting on nature. But there are hopeful messages too, as seen in this week’s haunting images of a disused whaling station.
