After four years in production, 2 089 shooting days and 117 filming trips in 40 different countries, this latest landmark, narrated by Sir David Attenborough is already one of the most popular shows of the year so far in a space normally dominated by Drama, Sport and Entertainment.

Audiences will soon discover the extreme forces that shape life in each of these iconic landscapes and the remarkable ways animals manage to overcome the challenges of surviving in the wildest places on Earth.
