On Thursday 16 April 2020, and for ONE night only, you’ll be able to find Sir David Attenborough in a remarkable new film, David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet. This sounds like an absolute masterclass of celebration, important reminders and more than timely that just happens to be taking place at one of the finest venues in the UK; the Royal Albert Hall.
In his amazing 93 years, Attenborough has visited every continent on the globe, exploring the wild places of our planet and documenting the living world in all its variety and wonder. As he says in the film, “I’ve had the most extraordinary life. It’s only now that I appreciate how extraordinary.”
But, of course, also during his lifetime, the legendary Attenborough has also seen first-hand the monumental scale of humanity’s impact on nature and for the first-time ever, he reflects upon both the defining moments of his lifetime as a naturalist and the devastating changes he has seen. Honest, revealing and urgent, this is Attenborough’s witness statement for the natural world and it already sounds like an absolute must-see!
He’ll be addressing the biggest challenges facing life on our planet with a promise that the film offers a powerful message of hope for future generations. This Premiere event will also see 500 of the best seats reserved for inspiring young people from across the UK who are working to tackle climate change and nature loss.
That’s not all either, as the event will also be broadcast LIVE to cinemas across the UK as well as the Netherlands, Iceland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland, with screenings to follow in Australia and New Zealand.
Colin Butfield, WWF’s Executive Producer for the film, had this to say:
“For decades, David has brought the natural world to the homes of audiences worldwide, but there has never been a more significant moment for him to share his own story and reflections. 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.”
Produced by award-winning wildlife film-makers Silverback Films and global environmental organisation WWF, this unique feature documentary tells the story of life on our planet by the man who has seen more of the natural world than any other.
