BBC Drops First Look For David Attenborough's New Series Dynasties

BBC earth has shared the first-look at David Attenborough's brand new nature series, Dynasties.

The show follows five of the world's most celebrated but endangered animals, as they do whatever they can to survive and protect their next generation in the face of environmental destruction and change to a fragile eco-system.

Each episode will focus on never-seen-before detail, following emperor penguins in the frozen wastes of Antarctica, chimpanzees on the edge of the Sahara in Senegal, West Africa, lions on the savannahs of Kenya's Masai Mara, painted wolves on the floodplains of the great Zambezi river in Zimbabwe and tigers in the jungles of Bandhavgarh, India.

Filming of these beautiful animals has taken over four years in a new landmark format. Viewers will see them play politics, fight battles, make alliances, launch takeovers, take on rivals and win or lose family feuds.

The series promises to show the most intimate and intense stories of the animal kingdom ever caught on camera before.

It will also capture the immense difficulties for the leaders, and relentless determination of animals to protect their families, revealing the complexities of power, rivalry and tenderness in animal relationships.

David Attenborough will present the whole series, as he has done with shows like the critically acclaimed Planet Earth and Blue Planet.

And as expected, the footage from this new video is incredibly powerful and moving as the animals try to survive.

The BBC announced that a new series was in the works earlier this year, telling fans to hold tight until the autumn for its release, and we still don't have an exact release.

A statement was released at the time by the show's producers, which read: "The odds are stacked against them - our planet is changing at an extraordinary rate and the habitats these animals live in are under increasing pressure, not least from the impact of humanity itself."
