ON Blockbuster Natural History series, which is voiced by Sir David Attenborough, sounds like BBC. However, this groundbreaking wildlife program is created by Netflix.
The American streaming giant has joined Sir David along with the director of the BBC series Planet Earth and Blue Planet in the fight to beat the BBC in their own game.
Our Planet is referred to as a "groundbreaking" eight-part series shot in four years in 50 countries, documenting the wildlife from the Arctic wilderness to the jungles of South America. It will show "the world's most precious species and fragile habitats, and show amazing sights on Earth as they have never been seen before".
The program draws viewers' attention to the dangers that the planet is facing, and hopes for a similar effect to last year's Blue Planet II, which highlighted ocean pollution.
The BBC considers its natural history documentaries as an example of what only the BBC can do. But Netflix wants to invade the area, as does the drama, producing the critically acclaimed The Crown and the House of Cards.
Sir David is a free agent and has previously developed programs for Sky. He has been a member of the BBC for 40 years and is considered one of the company's biggest star names.
