Seven Worlds, One Planet Available Now on DVD and Blu-ray

Experience the Splendor of Our World in 4K UHD with HDR

New York, NY – Millions of years ago, huge forces ripped apart the Earth’s crust creating seven continents – each with distinct climate and terrain, and its own unique, remarkable wildlife.

Seven Worlds, One Planet tells the story of our seven spectacular continents and how they shape the extraordinary animal behavior and biodiversity that we see today. Narrated by Sir David Attenborough and featuring theme music co-composed by Hans Zimmer and Jacob Shea, with series score by Jacob Shea for Bleeding Fingers Music, Seven Worlds, One Planet is available today on DVD and Blu-ray/4K UHD with HDR Combo and can be ordered now from BBC Shop.

“Following up Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II was no easy task, but the BBC have outdone themselves yet again with the magnificent Seven Worlds, One Planet,” said Hans Zimmer. “It was a true honor to return to the series to compose the theme with Jacob Shea for Bleeding Fingers Music, and a special pleasure to collaborate with Sia for ‘Out There.’ These stories of nature are so important for us to show and preserve for future generations, and I’m honored to be a part of spreading this message.”

From the depths of the South American jungles to the frozen peaks of Asia, and from the cities of Europe to the vast plains of Africa, Seven Worlds, One Planet is an eye-opening journey around a world you thought you knew. Be surprised by unexpected stories, marvel at iconic landscapes, and be awestruck by spectacular wildlife. Seven Worlds, One Planet is a BBC Studios Natural History Unit production, co-produced with BBC AMERICA, Tencent Penguin Pictures, ZDF, France Télévisions, and China Media Group CCTV9.

“It wasn’t just about showing amazing landscapes, it was about getting behavior that we hadn’t seen because the drones are quieter now, they fly for longer, the quality of the cameras on them is 4K,” said Scott Alexander, Series Producer. “That’s given us a new perspective. It’s given us a top-down view, enabling us to watch wildlife, not disturbing it but holding the shot.”
