[ 2017 ] The BBC’s Blue Planet II debuts to record audiences and rave reviews on October 29. Produced by BBC Studios Natural History Unit, the series took more than four years to film during which the crew mounted 125 expeditions, visited 39 countries, and dove 6,000 hours (4,000+ dives). Like its multi-award-winning predecessor, The Blue Planet (2001), the seven-part series is narrated and presented by naturalist Sir David Attenborough. The musical score by Hans Zimmer includes an exclusive track by Radiohead. Blue Planet II was co-produced with BBC AMERICA, WDR and France Télévisions in partnership with The Open University.
