In conjunction with David Attenborough’s new documentary series Seven Worlds, One Planet, BBC Studios and Spotify have launched a collection of exclusive content, including a playlist of the soundtrack for the series by Hans Zimmer and Jacob Shea.
Seven new videos not seen in the documentaries have been released on Spotify. They feature wildlife stories from around the globe, and Zimmer’s and Shea's original soundtrack can be found alongside these.
Their music responds to 20 animals and natural phenomena featured in the documentaries, including albatrosses facing extinction, the Northern Lights and Golden snub-nosed monkeys.
Attenborough’s new series explores the contrasting environments of the seven continents of the world and how they each foster their own distinctive ecosystem. The first episode aired on 27 October and new episodes can be caught on Sundays at 6.15pm GMT on BBC One and BBC iPlayer.
The new content is available to both Spotify Premium and Free users from today (31 October) in addition to a podcast hosted by BBC presenter Emily Knight and featuring series producers and members of the camera crew.
‘We’re constantly looking for fresh, innovative ways of storytelling, and these videos along with Hans Zimmer’s stunning soundtrack will help to bring the story of the seven different continents to life for a whole new generation,’ says Jasmine Dawson from BBC Studios.
Both the Zimmer/Shea soundtrack and the seven videos accompanying the documentary can be found here.
