In his first natural history spectacular of the year, Attenborough has recorded a new narration for the programme. We’ll travel around the world, from the East Cape of South Africa to the north of Norway, from Chile to the Indian Ocean, to see how animals overcome adversity to survive and thrive in some of the world’s most challenging environments – offering a message of hope to humanity.
To accompany these sequences, award winning composer Zimmer, Jacob Shea and the team at Bleeding Fingers have created new compositions, and have rearranged the original scores, for this exciting, joyful and adrenaline packed journey round the world to some of the most extreme environments, where despite the odds animals manage to survive.
The string section of the score is performed by the BBC Concert Orchestra, accompanied by UK rapper Dave, who will be featured performing on the grand piano. Both the orchestra and Dave were filmed for the programme in the Lyndhurst Hall at Air Studios, London.
