Sir David Attenborough Returns as the Star of BBC Studios Natural History Unit’s ‘Mammals’

Renowned British broadcaster Sir David Attenborough, celebrated for his iconic narration of numerous documentaries on nature, science, and the human experience, is poised to once again captivate audiences in BBC Studios Natural History Unit’s latest project, ‘Mammals’.

Described as the “most successful animal group on earth” by the BBC, mammals inhabit every continent and ocean, showcasing remarkable adaptability to diverse habitats. Now, in ‘Mammals’, Attenborough delves into the extraordinary world of these creatures, unveiling never-before-seen behaviours and offering fascinating insights into their unparalleled success.

Following the footsteps of his previous venture, ‘Life of Mammals’, which premiered two decades ago, Attenborough’s ‘Mammals’ promises to deliver a fresh perspective on this remarkable animal group. From the tiniest Etruscan shrew to the majestic blue whale, each episode of the six-part series will uncover the secrets behind their triumph, exploring their evolutionary prowess, adaptability, intelligence, and social dynamics.

Yet, amidst their triumphs, the series also sheds light on the challenges mammals face in today’s rapidly changing world, where habitat loss and human interference threaten their survival. As Attenborough guides viewers through different environments, from dark and cold regions to lush forests and aquatic realms, he highlights the ingenious strategies mammals employ to navigate a world increasingly shaped by human influence.

Roger Webb, executive producer of the series, emphasizes the relatable nature of these mammalian stories, drawing parallels between their experiences and those of human beings. From a mother capuchin monkey’s resourcefulness in providing for her offspring to a chimpanzee father’s lesson in foraging, the series showcases the enduring connection between humans and the wild mammals with whom they share the planet.

‘Mammals’ promises to be an engaging and compelling television experience, prompting viewers to contemplate their role in the lives of the remarkable creatures with whom they coexist. While an official air date has yet to be announced, audiences can anticipate the premiere of ‘Mammals’ on BBC One and BBC iPlayer this spring, eagerly awaiting Sir David Attenborough’s latest exploration of the natural world.
