This is the story of life’s epic battle to conquer and survive on planet Earth. Today there are 20 million species on our planet, yet what we see is just a snapshot in time — 99% of earth’s inhabitants are lost to our deep past. The story of what happened to these dynasties — their rise and their fall — is truly remarkable. In partnership with Industrial Light & Magic, the series uses the latest technology and science to bring long extinct creatures back to life, Life On Our Planet reveals the incredible story of life on our planet.

There is something endlessly fascinating about sitting back with a good documentary series and letting all that knowledge wash right over and into you.
Even better when it’s on a subject you know and love such as life on earth and especially if they go back to where it all began … yes, this guy has never lost his dino-loving, sabre-tooth appreciating inner child.
Executive produced by Steven Spielberg, narrated by Morgan Freeman and with the people that gave us Our Planet present and accounted for, Life on our Planet looks like a rich feast for the eyes and soul and just the sort of series to luxuriate in after a brain-sapping day at the office.
Life on our Planet premieres on Netflix on 25 October.
