Sir David Attenborough has warned that “human beings have overrun the world” in a trailer for his new film.
The feature-length documentary, titled David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet, looks back on the defining moments of his life and the environmental devastation that has taken place during that time.
As well as highlighting some of the issues that climate change poses, he also explores some of the potential solutions. In the trailer, the veteran broadcaster, 93, said:
“I’ve had the most extraordinary life. It is only now that I appreciate how extraordinary.”
