London: One of the world’s most famous environmentalists, Sir David Attenborough, who loves discovering remote lands and mysterious species for TV audiences since the 1950s is once again back with a BBC and Discovery series “A Perfect Planet”.

In his trademark voiceovers — warm, calm and full of contagious fascination for the natural world, Attenborough has recorded the five-part series which will premier Sunday 3 January 2021 at 8:00 pm on BBC Earth.

“This year perhaps more than ever, people are finding comfort and solace in the natural world. Whilst we may not be able to travel, we can take a few moments to enjoy our wonderful and diverse planet in this incredible footage, " said David Attenborough to BBC Science Focus Magazine while commenting on the series prequel.

“Oceans, sunlight, weather and volcanoes – together these powerful yet fragile forces allow life to flourish in astonishing diversity. They make Earth truly unique – a perfect planet. Our planet is one in a billion, a world teeming with life. But now, a new dominant force is changing the face of Earth: humans. To preserve our perfect planet we must ensure we become a force for good, ” BBC Science Focus Magazine quoted Attenborough.

According to BBC Science Focus Magazine 'A Perfect Planet' was 4 years in the making, filmed in 31 countries across 6 continents. The crew of over 200 people took over 3,000 hours of footage, witnessing 6 volcanic eruptions at featured locations.

Notably, Attenborough is known for his television series such as Life on Earth, The Secret Life of Plants, Living Planet, and so many more.
