Even Sir David Attenborough is having to adjust to the working from home life amid lockdown, as news comes that the broadcaster is filming scenes for his upcoming natural history show from his back garden.

The 94-year-old is currently filming video links, and of course, his all-important voiceovers for upcoming BBC docuseries A Perfect Planet from his home in Richmond-upon-Thames, London.

Sir David is apparently filming links in his back garden, while he's recording his voiceovers from a room in his home, which sound technicians have made soundproof by taping a duvet to the walls. There's one way to do it.

BBC natural history commissioning editor Jack Bootle said that the five-part series - based on how natural forces such as oceans and volcanoes allow the planet to thrive - is expected to go out on time thanks to Dave's WFH efforts.

"I am confident that it will hit the screens," he told The Mirror.

"There's small amounts of filming that remains to be done with Sir David and of course he also needs to record the voiceover. And there are some challenges involved with doing that during a time of lockdown.

"Assuming no disasters happen, that series will air as planned in the autumn, which we're all very excited about."

And progress appears to be going well as the veteran broadcast confirmed he's currently working on the final episode.

We're SO excited to get another Attenborough doc on our screens, and perhaps more excited that we might get a glimpse into the legend's back garden.

You just know it's going to be stunning... We're imagining rose beds and bird feeders galore!

A Perfect Planet is set to analyse our planet's natural forces and how animals such as white wolves and bears are able to adapt to the harsh environments around them.

The show is set to explain how the planet operates, looking at everything from ocean currents to solar energy to the weather, and venturing all around the world, from India to the Arctic.

Other animals we'll see in their natural habitat include China's golden snub-nosed monkeys and the vampire finches of the Galapagos.

Like most of Sir David's nature documentaries, the final episode will explore the impact of one of most prevalent natural forces of all: humans.

"Our planet is one in a billion, a world teeming with life. But now, a new dominant force is changing the face of Earth: humans," said Sir David when the series was announced in February.

He added that "to preserve our perfect planet we must ensure we become a force for good".

Charlotte Moore, BBC director of content, called A Perfect Planet "a breathtaking series celebrating the intricate systems that allow our planet to thrive, bringing together a unique perspective with groundbreaking camera technology".
