David Attenborough will explore the far reaches of the planet in the upcoming BBC Studios Natural History Unit series, “Seven Worlds, One Planet.”
Each of the seven episodes of the series will focus on a particular continent and how it shapes animal behavior and biodiversity.
For the Australia episode, drone technology made it possible to film a shark aggregation that only happens once every 15 years, while the Asia episode explores some of the highest mountain ranges in central China that are home to the rare golden snub-nosed monkey which frequently walk upright.
The series also feature polar bears jumping from rocks to catch adult beluga whales, a firefly spectacle in North America captured with a motion control tracking time-lapse camera, and a puma successfully hunting adult guanaco in South America.
“Seven Worlds, One Planet” premieres January 18 on BBC America.
