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. This eight part series follows some of the world’s most amazing species and tells extraordinary stories that are dramatic, thrilling, funny and sometimes heart-breaking, but always full of hope. Featuring never-seen-before animal behaviours, Planet Earth III deep dives into the stories and animal characters which reflect the new challenges that wildlife faces in our modern, crowded world.
Filmed over the course of over five years, Planet Earth III also transports audiences to spectacular unseen landscapes with the use of pioneering filmmaking technology like lightweight drones, high-speed cameras and remotely operated deep-sea submersibles. Planet Earth III highlights some of the most fantastic locations across Asia including travelling to Gomantong & Sukau in Borneo to spend time with the Oriental Pied Hornbill, to Dauin in The Philippines to see the Frogfish, Raja Ampat in Indonesia to investigate the lives of the Archer Fish and even visit one of the world’s largest natural cave Hang Son Doong in Vietnam.
