Watch: New David Attenborough documentary to launch on Netflix this Friday

Watch: New David Attenborough documentary to launch on Netflix this Friday

It may only be Monday but we are already thinking about our Friday night plans. This week we think a night in with Netflix is on the cards, and the timing couldn’t be more perfect with David Attenborough’s new documentary series Our Planet released on the streaming service this Friday, April 5.

David Attenborough on climate change

Our Planet will focus on the man-made threats to our global environments. It will be streamed to a total of 190 countries and there are high hopes it will spark a worldwide and much-needed conversation about climate change.

In 2017, Blue Planet II was released on the BBC and there was widespread outrage at the devastating effect plastic was having on our oceans. According to the Telegraph, the documentary’s producer Alastair Fothergill believes up to one billion people will see Our Planet and that the programme will prompt politicians (and everyday people) to make serious changes which will ultimately help our environment.

Why Netflix?

Alastair Fothergill said Netflix was the perfect choice to stream the project due to its sheer global reach, saying, “The BBC still only has 30 days on iPlayer, it doesn’t simultaneously globally transmit.

“And a lot of people who watch Netflix are that 16-30-year-old age group that is deserting terrestrial TV, and they actually really care about these issues because they’re the ones that are inheriting the planet.”

The eight-part series took four years to film across 50 countries, with a crew of over 600.

Sir David Attenborough will narrate the entire series which he believes “will take viewers on a spectacular journey of discovery, showcasing the beauty and fragility of our natural world.”

Watch the full trailer for Our Planet below.
