Planet Earth Live

The Irish Mail on Sunday - TV Week - - FOOD & DRINK - Nigel An­drew

Ju­lia Brad­bury (pic­tured) and Richard Ham­mond present a live wildlife event that’s hugely am­bi­tious, even for the BBC Nat­u­ral His­tory Unit. The aim is to com­bine the stun­ning cin­e­matog­ra­phy we’ve come to ex­pect from Frozen Planet and the like with the in­ti­mate live film­ing tech­niques of Spring­watch and Big Cat Live. The se­ries will fol­low real-life an­i­mal dra­mas as they un­fold around the world, through the event­ful month of May. Richard Ham­mond will be in south­ern Kenya, where he gets the chance to fol­low the pride of lions made fa­mous by Big Cat Diary, while Ju­lia Brad­bury will be get­ting close to the black bears of Min­nesota and fol­low­ing mi­grat­ing grey whales on the Pa­cific coast. Pre­pare to be amazed. Sun­day, 7.50pm, BBC1.
