Gladiator and Pirates of the Caribbean composer Hans Zimmer is teaming up with Sir David Attenborough and award-winning rapper Dave for BBC One’s Planet Earth: A Celebration.

The special one-hour programme, which will air in the coming weeks, brings together eight of the most extraordinary sequences from Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II, with a stunning musical performance, to lift the nation’s spirits.

Attenborough has recorded a new narration for the programme, which travels from the East Cape of South Africa to Norway, from Chile to the Indian Ocean, and explores how animals have overcome adversity to survive in some of the world’s most challenging environments, offering a message of hope to humanity.

To accompany these sequences, Zimmer, Jacob Shea and the team at Bleeding Fingers have created brand new compositions and rearranged original scores, which have been performed in a socially distanced space by the BBC Concert Orchestra, accompanied by Brit and Mercury Award-winning rapper Dave on the grand piano.
