Nine has picked up local rights to David Attenborough latest natural history epic, A Perfect Planet.
Attenborough will use A Perfect Planet to explain how weather, ocean currents, the sun and volcanoes foster and shape the natural world.

It will also screen in Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Lithuania, New Zealand, Norway, Russia, Spain, Slovenia, Sweden and on BBC Earth channels across Africa, Asia, Canada, Nordics and Poland.
Paul Dempsey, president of global distribution for BBCS, said: “Appetite for authentic and engaging factual content is growing each year with the Planet series, in particular, connecting to audiences around the world. We are seeing increasingly younger audiences who are passionate about protecting the natural world coming to the genre, and I expect to see this continue with A Perfect Planet.”
