With a production budget of 25 million U.S. dollars, shot over 2,000 days in the field, using 40 cameramen filming across 200 locations, BBC’s groundbreaking Planet Earth series celebrates our world as never before.
GMA News TV brings the award-winning series–the biggest the BBC’s Natural History Unit has ever produced--to Philippine audiences this July.
Planet Earth was the first natural history series to be filmed entirely in high definition, providing an unparalleled view of awe-inspiring landscapes from across the globe and incredible footage of the rarely spotted, almost mythical creatures that live in these habitats. The world’s premier wildlife cameramen travelled all over the planet, even to the most far-flung reaches, to put the series together.
Planet Earth explores the world’s greatest rivers and vast deserts, the hottest jungles, the hidden world of caves and caverns and the mightiest mountains – providing a definitive, awe-inspiring look at the diversity of our planet.
Narrated in Filipino by GMA News TV anchor Raffy Tima, the Planet Earth series premieres on GMA News TV Channel 11 this Saturday, July 7, at 9:55 PM with the episode titled "From Pole to Pole."
It is part of the news channel's continuing advocacy to deliver educational programming to Philippine audiences.
