Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Seven Worlds, One Planet is a wildlife documentary show that dedicates a full episode to each of the seven continents of the world (including Antarctica!). The show features many exotic -- often newly-discovered -- animals, some of which can be strange looking, and even scary. A lot of the focus is on how difficult it can be to survive in various types of climate and terrain, so the mini-stories they tell can be suspenseful and sometimes result in predators killing the animals that we've been following.
Is It Any Good?
Having had so much access to wildlife documentaries for so long, it's easy to take them for granted. But Seven Worlds, One Planet does amazing work in discovering corners of the world that feel under-documented, and presenting them in accessible, compelling ways. Viewers may have come to expect staggering beauty from these types of nature shows, yet the BBC Earth crew still manages to surprise and delight, telling stories and depicting creatures that might otherwise never be seen.
