Every time the BBC produces and distributes a nature documentary, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, we get happy. And this time, Blue Planet II is on the docket, and with Hans Zimmer and Radiohead musical nuggets, it is going to be awesome.
Here’s how they describe the project in a paragraph:
“This world-exclusive introduction to the show is narrated by series presenter Sir David Attenborough and set to an exclusive track developed by Hans Zimmer and Radiohead. The prequel features an array of some of the most awe-inspiring shots and highlights from the new series, as well as several exclusive scenes that will not feature in any of the seven episodes which are set for UK broadcast on BBC One later this year.”
The original Blue Planet was out in 2001. It took 5 years to produce.
