Sir David Attenborough in Bristol for one-off preview screening of ‘Seven Worlds, One Planet’

Sir David Attenborough is visiting Bristol later thismonth for an exclusive screening of BBC Studios’ new natural history series ‘Seven Worlds, One Planet’.

The first episode of the series will be shown at the Showcase de Lux cinema in Cabot Circus on the evening of October 23 – and tickets are completely free.

The preview will include a live Q&A with Sir David Attenborough and the multi-award winning production team behind the series, giving viewers an insight into how BBC wildlife documentaries are made.

You can apply for tickets on the BBC Shows and Tours website until 10pm on Thursday October 10. The 300 public tickets will then be allocated randomly.

The broadcaster said: ‘‘Seven Worlds, One Planet’ is the latest in a long line of critically acclaimed BBC wildlife documentaries. The series follows the fortunes of some of the Earth’s most fascinating creatures – from the baking plains of Africa and frozen waters off Antarctica to the far reaches of Asia.

‘The series also touches on the many challenges faced by animals in a modern world dominated by humans. By telling unknown, unseen and unexpected wildlife stories, we uncover the fundamental truth about what makes each one of our seven worlds unique.’

The series is made by BBC Studio’s Natural History Unit (NHU), which has been based in Bristol for more than 60 years. The unit is home to some of the most watched natural history shows in the world, including ‘Planet Earth’, ‘Blue Planet’ and ‘Dynasties’.

Julian Hector, Head of the NHU, said: “’Seven Worlds, One Planet’ takes our viewers on a journey to the seven continents on Earth, discovering what makes each one so special. I promise new animal behaviour and new perspectives of our natural world including the threats upon it and how some species are adapting to a changing world. I’m so proud and delighted that NHU will be giving our home city a sneak peak of the series before the rest of the world sees it.”
