David Attenborough is proving time and time again that age is nothing but a number.

Last night, it was confirmed that he will star in a brand new series on BBC One.

The five-part series will see David travel to America, Costa Rica, Croatia and Northern Europe, doing what he does best and exploring deserts, rainforests, mountains, you name it.

Bringing the unknown to life and making us immerse ourselves in wonder and information about the world around us, the series titled The Green Planet will focus on the complex lives of plants, using groundbreaking time-lapse thermal cameras.

Speaking about the new series, David Attenborough said:

“This is a wonderful opportunity to explore a neglected yet truly remarkable part of the natural world. Once again, the innovative approach of the BBC NHU and groundbreaking technology will reveal new and surprising wonders to the BBC One audience.”

And aside from that, a documentary on the nature expert’s life is also in the making. David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet will take a look at the broadcaster’s life, the incredible work he has produced and how he has seen nature change over the course of his lifetime in devastating ways.

The documentary film will premiere at the Royal Albert Hall on April 16, 2020 before taking to cinemas across Ireland and the UK as well as the Netherlands, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland.
