Sir David Attenborough has hung out with practically every kind of creature you can conceive of in his many years of globetrotting, from meerkats to sloths.
The 97-year-old national treasure digs into a completely new natural world wonder in his latest documentary… and it may be his craziest series ever.
Have you ever been strolling about and your ears perked up when you heard birds singing, bugs chirping, or an unidentifiable monster growling?
We can tell that in his next Sky Documentaries show Secret World of Sound, Sir David will investigate the vital role that sound plays in the lives of creatures all around the world, including an unusual fish that left the people of a town perplexed.
As is customary for the broadcaster, his crew uses cutting-edge recording gear and 360-degree Dolby Atmos soundscapes to generate revolutionary sequences that will have viewers on the edge of their seats, savouring the entire experience.
Think again if you thought you knew what animal noises were. Audiences will learn about amazing occurrences such as how lions and hyaenas fight each other in the dark using sound rather than muscle.
An odd humming noise generated by a rare fish has locals in one part of the world scratching their heads.
Baby caimans, which are alligatorids, can interact with each other from within their eggs.
Furthermore, the presentation will shock you with the level to which certain birds have learned the capacity of imitation, much beyond the copying parrots we’ve seen shown in pirate films our entire lives.
We can hardly wait to have our thoughts blown.
Springwatch star Chris Packham recently revealed what it was like to see Sir David – who is three years away from turning 100 – speak up about their most recent encounter at the end of last year.
‘When was the last time I saw him? ‘It had to be before Christmas now, or maybe just after Christmas, and he was in really, really terrific condition,’ the TV host revealed.
He continued to The Mirror: ‘I went to the car, to help him out of the car and he just leapt out and started off down the pavement.
‘To call him a natural treasure is an insult because it’s an understatement, he’s a global treasure.’
Secret World of Sound is set to air in spring 2024 on Sky Documentaries.
