Sir David Attenborough teams up with rapper Dave for collab we've always needed
Sir David Attenborough is teaming up with rapper Dave to become the entertainment duo we never knew we needed.
The pair are working together on a new special for the documentary filmmaker’s BBC series Planet Earth, and will focus on animals who are overcoming adversity.
Planet Earth: A Celebration aims to ‘lift people’s spirits’ following a difficult year, and show animals ‘surviving and thriving in some of the world’s most challenging environments – offering a message of hope to humanity’.
It will air later this summer.
Reimagining some of the previous moments from Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II, we will relive some of the breathtaking moments caught on film.
Speaking on the new project, Dave said: ‘I’ve always been a fan of powerful natural history documentaries. This is a programme where nature and music come together.’
Sir David will lend his legendary narration to the project, with Dave performing on the grand piano, joining the BBC Concert Orchestra to bring the soundtrack to life.
Dave will be working with composer Hans Zimmer on the one-off project, whose work has previously given life to Dunkirk, Interstellar, Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy and Attenborough’s last major BBC series, Seven Worlds One Planet.
Among the clips that will be re-aired is the horrifying moment an octopus goes head-to-head with a shark – and actually nearly suffocates the predator to death.
Planet Earth: A Celebration will air later this year on BBC One.
