David Attenborough recently released the trailer for his latest BBC series A Perfect Planet.

A Perfect Planet

The latest from the 95-year-old famous naturalist is said to be a unique fusion of blue-chip natural history and earth science that explains how our living planet operates. This five-part series will show how the forces of nature drive, shape and support the earth’s great diversity of wildlife.

The first four episodes explore the power of volcanoes, sunlight, weather and oceans. The final episode in the series looks at the dramatic impact of the world’s newest force of nature: humans – and what can be done to restore our planet’s perfect balance.

So far the reviews for the series revealed that it is Attenborough’s voice that helps make A Perfect Planet a near-perfect programme. 

“The cinematography is as awesome in scale and majesty as anything that has gone before, capturing both vast panoramas of tropical atolls and the tiniest wrinkly detail of a giant tortoise’s backside,” Sean O’Grady wrote for The Independent. “The theme of the series is clever and novel, each episode analysing one of the great forces of nature that have created “the only planet in the universe, so far as we know, where there is life” – the sun, weather, oceans and so on.”

The series will be released on the BBC in January 2021.


In 2020, Prince William and Attenborough joined forces to launch the Earthshot Prize – a prize that they hope will become the ‘Nobel Prize for environmentalism’.

The BBC reported that the pair are searching for 50 solutions to the world’s gravest environmental problems by 2030. With £50m (R1 075 838 254) to be awarded over a decade, the Earthshot Prize is the biggest environmental prize ever.

The Prince said “positivity” had been missing from the climate debate – something the award could supply.

“The Earthshot prize is really about harnessing that optimism and that urgency to find some of the world’s solutions to some of the greatest environmental problems,” he told the BBC. Anyone could win, he explained, as he called for “amazing people” to create “brilliant innovative projects”. These, he said, could help save the planet.
