UK's Attenborough says 'moment of crisis' has come on climate

In a new trailer for his documentary, titled David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet, Sir Davey has warned that the earth is getting close to the point of no return.

Not holding back, Sir David reveals some of the biggest challenges facing life on our planet and provides a snapshot of global nature loss in a single lifetime.

David Attenborough is not only one of the most popular channels of modern times, but also one of the busiest as he constantly documents the wonders of the world and the threats to our planet.

The WWF conservation organisation helped to produce the film.

'Human beings have overrun the world.

"This film is my witness statement, and my vision of the future", he adds. "We're replacing the wild with the tame", he said in the trailer.

WWF's executive producer for the film, Colin Butfield, said audiences know Sir David well from his many decades in front of the camera, but this documentary will give you an insight into who he really is.

"And, what is more, we know how to do it - that's the paradoxical thing, that we are refusing to take steps that we know have to be taken, and every year that passes makes those steps more and more hard to achieve". We need to learn how to work with nature rather than against nature.

It will be broadcast in cinemas on Thursday 16 April 2020, live from the world premiere at London's Royal Albert Hall, where viewers will also see Sir David joined live on stage by very special guests for a discussion on some of the most prevalent issues raised in the film.

It will then later be released globally on Netflix in Spring 2020.

The 93-year-old filmmaker has teamed with the World Wildlife Fund to make the film, which finds him reflecting on his own life, but also the devastating changes he's seen in decades of studying the natural world.

The film will be broadcast in the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Iceland, Ireland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Australia and New Zealand.

"This film coincides with a monumental year of environmental protection in which world leaders make critical decisions about nature and climate".

'It sends a powerful message from the most inspiring and celebrated naturalist of our time'.
