From its home in Bristol, BBC Studios’ Natural History Unit produces the world’s most iconic natural history programs, such as Blue Planet II and Planet Earth II, which has been watched by more than a billion people globally. Ranging from technically challenging live shows and super-landmarks to long-running series and children’s content, the unit creates much-loved programs which set the gold standard for the industry, like Dynasties, Blue Planet Live and Springwatch, as well as the forthcoming Seven Worlds, One Planet presented by Sir David Attenborough. The NHU is part of BBC Studios, a subsidiary of the BBC, which develops, produces and distributes bold, British content, making over 2,500 hours of content per year, operating in 22 markets globally, generating revenue of around £1.4bn and returning some £200m to the BBC each year.
