Documentary, Nature & Animals: Seven Worlds, One Planet tells the story of our seven spectacular continents and how they shape the extraordinary animal behavior we see today. Australia: A land cast adrift at the time of the dinosaurs. Here, kangaroos and wombats brave snowstorms and gum tree forests are filled with never-before-seen predators. North America: A continent of change. In winter, lynx prowl the Yukon for snowshoe hares and manatees seek hot springs to escape the freeze. In summer, Tennessee fish build spectacular underwater pyramids, fireflies light up the forest nights, and polar bears leap from rocks as they hunt beluga whales. South America: The most species rich continent on Earth. In the Andes, pumas hunt guanaco whilst rarely seen bears search for mini avocados. In the Amazon, poison dart frogs care for their babies, colorful macaws eat clay and birds make death-defying flights through a gigantic waterfall. Asia: The largest of all continents. In the frozen north, walrus congregate in extraordinary numbers, bears gather inside volcanoes and yeti-like monkeys fight in the remote forests of China. In the tropical south, the last few Sumatran rhino roam and the world’s most bizarre snake lurks in Iran. Europe: Where wildlife survives alongside people. In Gibraltar, a baby monkey is kidnapped, whilst in the cemeteries of Vienna grave robbing wild hamsters fight. In this fairy tale continent wolves roam the forests, dragons lurk in caves and baby bears wander the woods. Antarctica: The coldest, windiest, most hostile continent. Penguin chicks run the gauntlet of orca and leopard seals, colorful starfish and gigantic worms carpet the seabed, whilst on the surface you can witness one of the world’s greatest feeding spectacles. Africa: Home to the greatest wildlife show on Earth where chimps make tools, cheetah hunt prey twice their size and, in crystal clear freshwater lakes, devious imposters trick caring fish mothers.

Documentary: BBC America's first major natural history series, The Hunt, will premiere Sunday, July 3 at 9/8c. Through character driven stories, The Hunt illustrates in dramatic detail the strategies predators use to catch their prey (and those that the prey use to escape), with each episode centering on one of our planet’s key habitats. From open grasslands and dense forests to the arctic and the open ocean, the cutting-edge, seven-part series features rarely seen wildlife and animal behavior — revealing like never before the challenges that predators and prey face in each of these vastly different worlds. Narrated by famed naturalist Sir David Attenborough, the new series comes from multi-Emmy®-winning executive producer Alastair Fothergill (The Blue Planet, Frozen Planet) and series producer Huw Cordey (South Pacific, Frozen Planet) — the makers of the landmark series Planet Earth, which captivated audiences around the world in over 130 countries. “What I hope will become apparent is this: predators usually fail. People don’t realize how hard it is. We want the audience to engage in this real-life drama, where there are no heroes or villains. The point is, you never know if they will succeed: in the hunt, the outcome is never certain,” said Alastair Fothergill, Executive Producer of The Hunt. A US premiere screening of The Hunt will be presented on June 22 at the Opening Night of SeriesFest, at the internationally-renowned Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Denver. The Hunt is produced by Silverback Films for the BBC and co-produced by BBC America with BBC Worldwide and NDR Naturfilm. The series is executive produced by Alastair Fothergill with Huw Cordey serving as series producer. Music is by award-winning composer, Steven Price, who won an Academy Award in 2014 for his score to Gravity. Tom McDonald is the Commissioning Editor for the BBC. BBC Worldwide is the global distributor of this series.
