When broadcaster, natural historian and living treasure Sir David Attenborough makes a new nature documentary series, it's well worth your time and attention. Luckily for everyone who loves peering at the planet's wonders, the 93-year-old icon is rather prolific. Already this year, he fronted Netflix's eight-part Our Planet series — and now he's heading back to small screens everywhere thanks to the BBC's Seven Worlds, One Planet.

Across seven episodes — each focusing on a different continent — the new series will delve into the distinctive animal life that roams around Earth. Expect to spend time looking at creatures scampering across Africa's scorching plains and navigating Antarctic's frozen waters, as well as exploring the enormous diversity in Asia and the wildlife prowling through Europe, all alongside looks at Australia and Oceania, as well as both North and South America.

In addition to celebrating the variety of natural life found on each continent, Seven Worlds, One Planet will ponder their threats in today's modern environment.

The show also features some considerable human star power alongside Attenborough, with its lengthy trailer — badged a 'prequel' to the series by the BBC — featuring new track 'Out There' from Sia and Hans Zimmer.  The preview was launched at this year's Glastonbury Festival, with Attenborough taking to the stage in front of his biggest live audience ever.

Seven Worlds, One Planet is to premiere in the UK this year at a yet-to-be-revealed date, then head Down Under afterwards — the BBC owns seven channels across Australia and New Zealand, including BBC First, BBC UKTV, BBC Knowledge and CBeebies on Foxtel and Fetch TV in Australia; BBC Living on Fetch TV in NZ, and BBC UKTV and BBC Earth on Sky TV.

Feast your eyes on the extended trailer below:

Seven Worlds, One Planet will premiere in the UK later in 2019, and screen in Australia and New Zealand afterwards via the BBC's local channels — although specific airdate details are yet to be revealed. We'll update you when they're announced.
