The song Hoppípolla from the Icelandic band Sigur Rós was used in the Planet Earth campaign in 2006. It was so successful that BBC Creative (the BBC's in house marketing agency) asked them to provide a fresh take on the song for the Planet Earth II trailer. The band tracked down the original stems of the track and re-worked the new version from them. See more »
As Planet Earth I was released about ten years ago, a visual improvement could have been expected due to the use of advanced technology, but man, did they up their game. The camera-work and the use of music were both truly superb, as well as the editing in which different sub- segments were all synced so well with the narrating of it by David Attenborough.
It was nothing like a nature documentary, it was way beyond that. The short and different segments, were movies on itself. It contained all the different genres, from experiencing the thrill in a Hollywood-like impossible action-escape scenario to having a comical and truly euphoric moment of realization about the true extent of what nature has to offer. And this was all brought so incredibly well.
If we had any more of such heavenly quality programs on TV, I would simply just glue my eyes to my TV and live out the rest of my life as a vegetable.
