Career-spanning documentary on rare creature David Attenborough coming soon

One of earth’s finest creatures, David Attenborough, will be honoured with a career-spanning documentary. A testament to a man who has documented the lives and progress of countless animal species for almost seven decades.

Chronicling the life of the now 93-year-old famed natural historian, David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet is a collaboration between Silverback Films, a Bristol based production company that specialises in high-quality natural history films, and international environmental organisation WWF.

A career-spanning documentary on the one and only David Attenborough will premiere at London’s Royal Albert Hall in 2020.

Angles that the documentary will cover are changes to the natural world, humanity’s impact on nature, plus the devastation and evolution of the planet Attenborough has observed throughout his lifetime. The film is being referred to as “Attenborough’s witness statement for the natural world.”

Promising “a powerful message of hope for future generations”, the film will have its premiere in April 2020 at the Royal Albert Hall where 500 seats have already been reserved for aspiring young climate activists. WWF’s Colin Butfield, in the role of Executive Producer for the film, says:

This film coincides with a monumental year for environmental action as world leaders make critical decisions on nature and climate. It sends a powerful message from the most inspiring and celebrated naturalist of our time.

For decades, David Attenborough has shared and entertained us with his findings on the natural world. It only makes sense that his extraordinary personal story is represented.
