In the spirit of doing things that make our soul happy we were very happy to receive the news that BBC Earth have announced a brand new series of The Green Planet with Sir David Attenborough, and you don't have to wait long to see it!
Across the series, David will travel to the USA, Costa Rica, Croatia, and northern Europe, from deserts to mountains, from rainforests to the frozen north, to find new stories and a fresh understanding of how plants live their lives. He will meet the largest living things that have ever existed; trees that care for each other; and plants that breed so fast they could cover the planet in a matter of months.
He will find time-travellers - seeds that can outlive civilisations, and plants that remain unchanged for decades. He will examine our relationship with plants, past, present, and future, and reveal how all animal life, ourselves included, is totally dependent on plants.
Using brand new technological advances and over two decades of new discoveries, the show will take the viewer on a journey into a magical world. Audiences will discover that plants are as aggressive, competitive, and dramatic as animals - locked in desperate battles for food, for light, to reproduce and to scatter their young.
The five-part series is set to air in the MENA region from January 10th on beIN at 9pm
