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 »
The original Planet Earth back in 2006 was an astounding and refreshing series that tore down the limits of documentary making. It was universally lauded as exceptional, and if you haven't seen it then you're missing a genuine treat.
Planet Earth II is everything its predecessor was. And more.
Ultra sharp photography, iris-piercing colour and focus, and on a decent home set up, a superbly immersive experience. It is almost hypnotic the way the gorgeous landscapes and action scenes are interwoven with a sublime soundtrack by Hans Zimmer.
The BBC receives criticism sometimes for the way it spends 'tax payers' money', but surely not for this. Whether you're aged 8 or 80, this is the highest quality television that will bewilder and astound.
Truly wondrous, and David Attenborough is a legend.
