One man has seen more of the natural world than any other. This unique feature documentary is his witness statement. In his 94 years, David Attenborough has visited every continent on the globe, exploring the wild places of our planet and documenting the living world in all its variety and wonder. Now, for the first time he reflects upon both the defining moments of his lifetime as a naturalist and the devastating changes he has seen. Honest, revealing and urgent, 'David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet' is a powerful first- hand account of humanity's impact on nature and a message of hope for future generations. After the film, audiences will have the unique chance to watch a very special, exclusive conversation between Sir David Attenborough and Sir Michael Palin. This will only be available in cinemas.
