Planet Earth II premieres on BBC Earth, DStv channel 184, this afternoon (Sunday, February 5) at 16h00.

Experience the world from the viewpoint of animals themselves. From spellbinding wildlife spectacle to intimate encounters, Planet Earth II takes you closer than ever before.

A decade ago, Planet Earth redefined natural history filmmaking, giving viewers the ultimate portrait of life on Earth. Ten years on, the unprecedented advances in both filming technology and our understanding of the natural world, means we can once again reveal our planet from a completely new perspective. In the most ambitious landmark series to date, Planet Earth II travels through jungles, deserts, mountains, islands, grasslands and cities, to explore the unique characteristics of Earth’s most iconic habitats and the extraordinary ways animals survive within them.

New technology has allowed individual stories to be captured in an unparalleled level of detail. For the first time, viewers are immersed in incredible landscapes and share the most dramatic moments in the lives of animals.
