Blue Planet 2 trailer revealed by the BBC showing jaw-dropping footage of sea life with music specially composed by Radiohead and Hans Zimmer
THE Blue Planet 2 trailer has been released featuring jaw dropping footage from the deep.
Radiohead and Hollywood composing legend Hans Zimmer have helped score the programme which promises to be even more dramatic than the first.
The trailer shows everything from sea gulls to whales as it charts the lives of creatures above, on and beneath the waves.
Sir David Attenborough’s first deep sea series wowed the globe with the wonders of the ocean and is widely held up as one of the greatest documentary series ever made.
During the voiceover, Sir David says: “New science and new technology allow us to voyage further and deeper than ever before.”
It had been announced earlier this month that Radiohead and Zimmer, who has scored films such as Gladiator, the Dark Knight and Dunkirk, would be working on an orchestral version of the band’s song Bloom.
Bloom first featured on Radiohead’s 2011 album The King Of Limbs.
Frontman Thom Yorke said: “Bloom was inspired by the original Blue Planet series so it’s great to be able to come full circle with the song and re-imagine it for this incredible landmark’s sequel.”
The new series of Blue Planet II was announced back in February but will not air on BBC1 until later this year.
The seven-part documentary sequel comes 20 years after the original series, which set out to explore the deepest and darkest realms of the world’s oceans.
One of the most memorable and heartbreaking scenes was a brutal attack by a group of killer whales on one of their babies.
Other creatures featured included dolphins, fish including marlins and sea birds.
And when it aired in 2001, it received widespread acclaim from both the public and critics alike.
It also made nearly £20 million in the sales of DVDs, books and broadcast rights, while the show was sold to more than 150 territories across the globe.
