David Attenborough’s new Netflix documentary looks absolutely breathtaking

David Attenborough Says Human Beings Have Overrun the World and the Planet Is Headed for Disaster

It said the programmes will explore all aspects of the environment "at a local and global level" with Sir David Attenborough among those getting involved.

Sir David Attenborough has warned that "the moment of crisis has come" and "life and death decisions" must be made to address climate change.

The official trailer for Sir David Attenborough's new film A Life On Our Planet is here and we can guarantee that it will leave the hairs on the back of your neck on end.

'Human beings have overrun the world.

"This is part of our commitment to Our Planet Matters and we have many exciting new commissions across news and current affairs with informative, accessible expertise, to help audiences keep up with this vital story".

David Attenborough is not only one of the most popular channels of modern times, but also one of the busiest as he constantly documents the wonders of the world and the threats to our planet. "We're replacing the wild with the tame", he said in the trailer.

Produced by award-winning wildlife film-makers Silverback Films and global environmental organisation WWF, the movie will chronicle Sir David's extraordinary life, focusing on "the man who has seen more of the natural world than any other".

He continues: 'The living world is a unique and spectacular marvel, yet the way we humans live on earth is sending it into a decline.

"This film is my witness statement, and my vision of the future", he adds. We need to learn how to work with nature rather than against nature.

It will then be released on Netflix.

The film will be shown in cinemas on April 16 live from the premiere at the Royal Albert Hall in London, before being released on Netflix.

The film will first get released in a bunch of countries, including the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Denmark, Finland, Australia and New Zealand, before being chucked onto Netflix for everyone to see.

The United Nations Climate Change Conference in Madrid last year that involved almost 200 countries failed to make decisions on key issues, leaving them for the next major talks in Glasgow towards the end of this year.

The renowned naturalist and broadcaster said action has been put off "year after year" but there is no more time to "prevaricate".
