Whales are associated with sharks and dead fish: their planet III.

Detachable whalecam, remote underwater camera operated from director’s bedroom and ballet equipment are among the innovations that will be featured for the first time on David Attenboroughs Planet III.

Following the BBCs’ global success in 2016 Planet II And the corporate natural history scene took five years to push the boundaries of technology to provide a series of smooth jaw drop.

Producer / director Nick Easton said the team wanted a view of a whale boat in Argentina to express its views, but technology was not available. So for six months, the team discussed the ethics of a whale and then another year of development and consultation with whale scientists.

In the end, the hardest and most time consuming thing to develop is how to disconnect the camera when they use it. So they developed a melting mechanism made from cornstarch that emits a camera after 20 minutes.

Despite only two stunning shots on the show, Easton said it was worth the effort. There was a human guinea pig in Bristol swimming down the pool with the camera. I am very grateful for that.

The eight-part BBC Attenborough Studios series also features an unprecedented video of the world’s largest colony of star-studded octopus mother Hercules slowly dying on the seabed as they protect their eggs. Of them for 2 years.

Producer Matt Brandon explains that it was done by director Will Ridgeon in Bristol in his bedroom, directing the camera on a car that ran thousands of miles, two miles below the sea. That would be impossible for the original Planet [in 2006].

About a third of the series was filmed using a remote camera, partly due to Covid, but also reduced the team’s carbon footprint. Environmental issues are also helped by the use of drones rather than helicopters.

Drones have many purposes. Easton said the shooting in one of the largest caves in the world featured a Ballet Drone with one drone flying around in the dark, illuminating the space while interacting with the other filming.

Drones were also used to capture what Attenborough said was the sequence of seals with South Africa’s stunning sharks, which took director Georgina Ward four years to capture, which Brandon said. Said to be a new attitude.

Other highlights include a seal escape from a camel fishing net that helps his chicks survive. Fake its death.

There are also scenes that show the impact on humanity, including flamingos in Mexico who are trying to protect their chicks from being destroyed by storms that are swiftly affected by climate change.

The series also features Attenborough in the Kent Meadows, which Charles Darwin walked into, reminding viewers of the evolution. According to executive producer Mike Gunton Planet III Look at the new glass that the planet is changing and there is this huge force that Darwin will call the selective pressure. And that choice pressure is human.

He said that while the previous episodes are still the same. Planet III There is another context in which animals are adapting their lives in response to the challenges of a rapidly changing world.

For example, rhinos walking through Nepal and long-tailed monkeys stole iPhones from tourists to negotiate a return in exchange for food.

Attenborough also contrasts with his 1957 visit to the tiny Raine Island north of the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest turtle breeding ground, with the current situation as a result of Climate change, it will disappear under the waves. Local conservationist Keiran Murphy has been shown rescuing stranded turtles, saying the government and big business must get it.

A session is dedicated to the Conservatives of Heroes and includes two women dressed in yellow to become the foster mothers of bald chicks, teaching them how to fly using a light microphone. It is thought that yellow is attractive to young animals.

The first is a podcast that will accompany the sequel starring Attenborough, Gunton and other programmers.

Gunton paid tribute to the struggles of sailors filmed in 43 countries across six continents. Photographer Abdullah Khan slept for 16 days in a 40-degree heat while a crew on the remote island of Ellesmere in Canada had to dig a runway to get the plane out.

The BBC has reduced its climate impact by using more local camera operators and training newcomers through the BBC Studios project, Songbird. Gunton said it gave the show a different perspective, and Brandon said it helped reduce cancellations due to climate change, making it harder to predict when things would go wrong. Happens.

However, Gunton said he was optimistic about the future, as when Attenborough filmed in the Darwins meadow, it lived with insects and gave the couple hope.

Planet III Is airing earlier than in previous series, with the aim of allowing children to watch and participate more.

Attenborough told Observer: Children have an instinctive understanding of how the world works. Children generally have a better understanding of the natural world, and as adults we should create more opportunities for them to do that.
