David Attenborough Has A New Nature Series Coming
Brand new five-part series The Green Planet will focus on the complex lives of plants, using groundbreaking time-lapse thermal cameras.
The series - which is planned to air in 2021 - will see the 93-year-old tour America, Costa Rica, Croatia and Northern Europe, exploring everything from deserts to rainforests, and mountains to the frozen north.
David Attenborough says: "This is a wonderful opportunity to explore a neglected yet truly remarkable part of the natural world. Once again, the innovative approach of the BBC NHU and groundbreaking technology will reveal new and surprising wonders to the BBC One audience."
Mike Gunton, Executive Producer, added: "This series will take viewers into a world beyond their imagination - see things no eye has ever seen. The world of plants is a mind-blowing parallel universe; one that we can now bring to life using a whole range of exciting new camera technology. This is Planet Earth for plants!".
The docuseries will look at 'time-traveller' planets including seeds that can outlive civilisations, how plants compete for life just as aggressively as animals, and nurture and care for their young.
The announcement comes just after it's been revealed a documentary based on the broadcaster's life is in the works.
