David Attenborough Is Back With A New Series
Who else just peed a little?
It may be a Monday morning, but all is not lost. In fact, we have REALLY good news.
DAVID ATTENBOROUGH IS BACK.
Yep, the man you wished read you bedtime stories at night will soon be returning to seduce your eardrums. The BBC have just announced that he will be narrating the sequel to 2001 award-winning series Blue Planet (Blue Planet II) later this year.
In the same way that Planet Earth II (which we LOVED) broke new boundaries and used technology that meant we discovered more about the natural world than we’ve ever been able to before, Blue Planet II promises the same, but underwater.
It has taken four years to film and they’ve covered every ocean off every continent in the world. There will be seven parts, and it will be broadcast on BBC One. WHO ELSE IS EXCITED?
So what’s new with Blue Planet II?
According to the BBC Press Office we’re gonna see methane volcanoes erupt in the Gulf of Mexico, the “’boiling sea’ phenomenon in the Pacific Ocean” (intriguing) and plunge to new depths of the Antarctic sea. We’re also going to discover never-before-filmed creatures like “hairy-chested Hoff crabs” and a “tool-using tusk fish”. Sounds weird and hilarious.
New technology has also allowed the team to film predatory fish and dolphins front-on, and they’ve used suction cameras that attach to the back of whales and sharks, so we can literally travel on the back of them.
It’s like something out of Finding Nemo/ Dory. And we’d like to be involved.
We’ll leave you with Sir David Attenborough’s comments about Blue Planet II: “I am truly thrilled to be joining this new exploration of the underwater worlds which cover most of our planet, yet are still its least known.”
Argh, ok, it’s not exactly a revolutionary quote, but imagine the way it would sound when he actually said it.
Now watch the Sex Squad discuss all the dirty deets...
