The latest docu-series from the BBC, Seven Worlds One Planet is now available on iPlayer.

We’re going to look at how you can catch up on this masterful documentation of the natural world wherever you are in it, but first what makes this show standout from the numerous other earth-related documentaries out there and why go through the effort to watch it abroad?

Seven Worlds One Planet presents a coherent, sweeping narrative that showcases our planet step by step, tectonic plate by tectonic plate, each of the seven episodes documents the life of animals on each of the earth’s seven continents (you guessed it). From the dramatic battles and literal falls of elephant seals in the Antarctic to the fleeting luminescent beauty of fireflies in North America, Seven Worlds One Planet truly presents the best of our planet’s diverse ecosystems through a string of continent oriented episodes that are geographically easy to follow.

A lot of effort went into getting the impactful result; the series was made across the span of five years, with over 1,500 people working on the series and with filming taking place across forty-one different countries, Seven Worlds One Planet showcases, and captures in delicate detail the perilous beauty of our planet.

And finally, the series is voiced by a natural phenomenon himself, Sir David Attenborough - who wouldn’t be happy to just listen to him reading a shopping list?

Unfortunately, you might as well be in Antarctica when it comes to watching iPlayer outside the UK. You could try and find some VPN software to download, which will obscure your computer’s address and make it look like you’re in the UK whilst watching iPlayer. However, the level of technical expertise required to correctly install a VPN is high and the speed of your computer may also be affected. And if you are in Antarctica, that’s an unnecessary hassle you don’t want to deal with.
