THE official trailer for Sir David Attenborough’s new feature film has been released – and it promises to be his greatest story yet.

For decades, the legendary broadcaster has introduced the wonders of the natural world to audiences worldwide. Now, at the age of 93 and in one of his most personal projects to date, he reveals his own witness statement and vision for the future.

In this unique feature documentary, titled David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet, the celebrated naturalist reflects upon both the defining moments of his lifetime and the devastating changes he has seen. Coming to cinemas on April 16, the film addresses some of the biggest challenges facing life on our planet, providing a snapshot of global nature loss in a single lifetime.
