Dynasties – another adventure into the unknown with Attenborough

The national Treasure that is Sir David Attenborough launched his new show on the 11th November. Episode 2 aired last night on BBC 1. In the series he narrates footage about some of the world’s most endangered species.

Last week’s programme focused on Chimpanzees in Senegal, with the alpha male battling against adversity.

This week it was the turn of the Emperor Penguins in Antartica, with the sight of literally thousands of newborns huddling together to keep warm in a truly magical scene.

These first two episodes turned out to be as amazing as all of his previous work, showing how talented people can be in the most remote places. To film each of the different episodes it took hundreds of days filming (for episode 1 alone it took 309 days) as well as working in difficult locations, such as living on an Antarctic ice shelf whilst filming the penguins. 

If you haven’t watched it yet, then we highly recommend watching it on Catch Up. Episodes are on BBC 1 on Sunday evening at 8:30pm.
