The programme will be using eight of the most extraordinary sequences from the Bafta award-winning ‘Planet Earth II’ and ‘Blue Planet II’, which is the most-watched natural history series of the last fifteen years.

Sir David will be narrating over music performed by the BBC Concert Orchestra that will feature Dave on a grand piano. 

Along with a number of other composers, Hans Zimmer has reworked the original score with a series of new compositions.

“I’ve always been a fan of powerful natural history documentaries,” said Dave the rapper.

Dave went on to say: “This is a programme where nature and music come together, so it was only right that I lent my talent, my time, and my attention to this project.”

“It was a pleasure to work alongside Sir David Attenborough and Hans Zimmer.” – Dave added.

Hans Zimmer, who is well known for his work on films like ‘The Dark Knight’ and ‘The Lion King’, said: “Working with David on so many of his magnificent programmes celebrating nature and our planet has been a joy for me.”

“I am constantly inspired by what he is able to capture, and the collection of sequences featured in ‘Planet Earth: A Celebration’ is truly special.” – Hans added.
