Planet Earth III Premieres Highlighting Fantastic Locations Across Asia
Witness the sights and sounds of Asia on Planet Earth III On BBC
Planet Earth III makes its debut on BBC Earth in Asia this year, almost two decades since the original Planet Earth series first redefined natural history filmmaking. Presented by Sir David Attenborough, Planet Earth III is the upcoming instalment of the groundbreaking and award-winning Planet Earth trilogy.
Shining The Spotlight On Asia
Planet Earth III will highlight some of the most fantastic locations across Asia including Gomantong and Sukau in Borneo, to Dauin in The Philippines, Raja Ampat in Indonesia and even one of the world’s largest natural cave Hang Son Doong in Vietnam.
Other highlight locations across Asia, which many Asians should be more than happy to look out for include the Maldives, the Gobi Desert in Mongolia, Ke Bang National Park in Vietnam, Yala National Park in Sri Lanka, the Sukkur Region in Pakistan and West Bengal in India.
Natural History Brought To Life
With over 100 years of storytelling heritage at the BBC, BBC Studios’ Natural History Unit is in a unique position to produce a documentary of this scale and importance. Filmed over the course of over five years, Planet Earth III travels to spectacular unseen landscapes.
Pioneering filmmaking technology like lightweight drones, high-speed cameras and remotely operated deep-sea submersibles transport audiences from the most remote jungles to the deepest oceans, and from the darkest caves to the hottest deserts.
Additionally, from the makers of Blue Planet II and Planet Earth II, Planet Earth III will also highlight the growing need to preserve and restore nature. We’ve reached a critical point in our planet’s history and the natural world has changed more over the past few decades than ever previously observed in our human history.
These changes have been felt across every ecosystem and by the countless creatures that we share this planet with. In the final episode, viewers will meet some of the dedicated ‘heroes’ across the globe who put their lives on the line to protect the wildlife and the critically important ecosystems of our planet.
The BBC Earth Asia premiere of Planet Earth III is on Sunday, 29 October 2023, at 8pm on UnifiTV channel 501, Astro channel 554 and on BBC Player. Visit the Official BBC Studios Website to find out more.
