Sir David Attenborough’s latest documentary, A Life On Our Planet is dropping on Netflix today – and it’s the perfect Sunday watch.
The brand new nature documentary film will focus both on David’s own life and early career, as well as on the devastating changes that our eco-system has suffered over the last 50 years.
Produced by award-winning wildlife film-makers Silverback Films and global environmental organisation WWF, the movie will chronicle David’s extraordinary life, focusing in detail on “the man who has seen more of the natural world than any other”.
Importantly, it also delves into the biggest issue of modern times – saving the natural world.
Described as “a powerful, first-hand account of humanity’s impact on nature and a message of hope for future generations” it’s set to be an incredible watch and even prompted Sir David, 94, to make an Instagram account last month, so he could interact with fans.
In a clip from wildlife charity WWF, who co-produced the doc, David can be seen at the start of his career – and appearing topless on a boat no less!

In the clip, he can be seen exploring the ocean and playing with monkeys in the rainforests, explaining it was “the best time of his life”
“To begin with it was quite easy. People had never seen pangolins before on television. They’d never seen sloths before,” he said.
“They’d never seen the centre of New Guinea before. It was the best time of my life.”
Although the doc was originally supposed to be celebrated with a world premiere at the Royal Albert Hall back in April, ahead of a wider release in cinemas, due to the coronavirus pandemic causing delays, the film will now drop on Netflix today (4th October).
One thing is for sure – this will most definitely be worth the wait!
