An all-new look at our astonishing planet from a completely new perspective, 10 years on from the first, groundbreaking, Planet Earth.
Featuring more than 200 photographs based on the remarkable footage from the landmark BBC television series, Planet Earth II offers a fresh look at the natural diversity of the world around us.
Discover six vastly different environments through fascinating new stories and characters: the desert-dwelling blind 'dune sharks' and the pygmy sloths unique to one island, crab-killing crazy ants and pigeon-catching fish. From the unlikely urban dwellers to mountaintop survivors, grass-eating multitudes to swimming jungle predators, this is a view of the world we are rarely able to see.
With a foreword by the series presenter David Attenborough, and including exclusive behind-the-scenes accounts of how the team managed to capture the most spectacular sequences, Planet Earth II is an unforgettable visual and narrative experience.
