Voiced by Sir David Attenborough, the eight-part series from Silverback Films and in collaboration with WWF will be premiered on Netflix in April 2019. Featuring some of the world’s rarest creatures and previously unseen parts of the Earth, the series will focus on the breadth of diversity in habitats around the world; from the remote Arctic wilderness and mysterious deep oceans, to the vast landscapes of Africa and diverse jungles of South America.

Revealing the most amazing sights on Earth, alongside stories of the ways humans are affecting the world’s ecosystems, this book is at the forefront of a global conversation as we work together to protect and preserve our planet.

Our Planet will be a companion to the series, featuring stunning photographic images and graphics alongside information on animal behaviour and environmental change we've previously never seen before. It will be published in hardback and Ebook.

Commenting on this exciting partnership between on-screen and book, Susanna Wadeson, Transworld Publishing Director and Head of Non-Fiction said:

‘The scale of this project – its ambition, the breath-taking footage and of course the critically important message is awe-inspiring. I am so proud that the Our Planet book both represents the series and goes beyond it, expanding on remarkable stories and bringing a depth of information that is impossible on screen. It is also the most beautiful book I have ever worked on.’
