BBC America's new series Seven Worlds, One Planet aims to tell the story of earth’s seven continents, and how they shape the extraordinary animal behaviour and biodiversity we see as today. Narrated by David Attenborough, the seven-part series is shot over four years in 38 countries by a crew of over 1500 people worldwide.

Attached to a background score from Sia and Hans Zimmer, the trailer serves montages of Antarctica ice caps, Asia's dense jungles, and vast stretches of African deserts. The series will also shed light on how warming of the oceans is having a profound effect on the weather patterns. Attenborough's voiceover reveals how the series will delve to find out 'how life developed on each continent, and why the precious diversity is being lost'.

Seven Worlds, One Planet is produced and directed by Jonny Keeling and Scott Alexander. The series is presented by the BBC Studios Natural History Unit.
