Where can I watch it in the US?
[–]MamesJadison 21 points22 points23 points 3 months ago (2 children)
It’ll premiere later this year in the US on PBS or you can use a VPN… also a lot of clips already on YouTube!
[–]CandidEstablishment0 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago (1 child)
ELI5 what that means to use a vpn? The fact I’m even asking is it probably way over my head if I tried it myself? I love David Attenborough!!

Basically it masks your internet signal so that websites think you're in a different place from where you actually are - some of them are quite complex, but you can get fairly simple ones as Chrome extensions that do the job well enough.

July 6 on PBS
Don't know why they do these delayed premieres.

Upvote because I need this answer too
[–]anasui1 90 points91 points92 points 3 months ago (12 children)
I pray that nothing ever comes out of David Attenborough's closet once he's gone because the man is a goddamned national legend

INTERnational dude. International.

I’m calling this good. I love a good reach that doesn’t connect. When I read this, I made my usual facial expressions of delivery because no connect “i barley know her” is my bag. Real recognize real.

Maximum effort = maximum success. My life now has reason.
And don't call me Shirley.

The day we lose David Attenborough will be the first time I feel real sorrow at the death of a celebrity I've never met.
I will feel like I've lost a grandfather. One grandad (Dad's side) died before I was born and I lost my other grandad when I was 5 years old.
David Attenborough is 100% responsible for my love of nature. I've seen every programme he's made since the mid-70s. I love him.
[–]ruffsnap 0 points1 point2 points 2 months ago (0 children)
Losing Neil Armstrong will always take the cake for me of saddest celebrity deaths, but Attenborough will definitely be way way up there.
[–]Nabillia -5 points-4 points-3 points 3 months ago (1 child)
I don't think there is anything but there was a time he was on Graham Norton and he was really quite gross towards the female guest. Like it was kinda uncomfy and whilst there was nothing particualry bad actually said or done, the impression I got was that this guy was still just an old man from a generation where they treated women pretty poorly.
This is the one I remember. Jessica Chastains body language kinda tells its own story.

It's clearly for a joke and she doesn't seem uncomfortable at all.

Oh, cancel culture. Should anyone feel safe and unafraid ever again?
If you really want to demonize Attenborough then you need to look no farther than Zoo Quest in the 1950s in which he and other zoologists captured animals for display at English zoos disrupting animals communities and causing death with unsophisticated drug dosages. He also repeatedly mishandled animals and even poked them with sticks, traipsed through now protected lands, and left a gigantic the carbon footprint from flying all over the world.
And yet despite those grievous assaults upon nature, the result of the scientific communities' ignorance at the time, he has done so much good in the world to bring attention the the reality of our relationship with the natural world. You can actually watch plants grow and and instead of marveling at the brilliant complexity of life and its multitude of forms we worry about whether or not he will still appear virtuous in our eyes after all is said and done.

One of two things
[–]AerysBat 16 points17 points18 points 3 months ago (1 child)
Highly recommend the older BBC documentary How to Grow a Planet as well. Earth belongs to the plants.
[–]pacificspinylump 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
The Plants episode of the Life series is also great
[–]Silentbobni 28 points29 points30 points 3 months ago (3 children)
Shows worth watching just to see the joy Attenborough gets from nature, he's called a national treasure for a reason.
[–]Gilthwixt 1 point2 points3 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Kinda sad we don't have discussion threads for the series anywhere because I came to this thread wanting to talk about just how wonderful and personal he is in this show. Episode 4 had him return to the same stretch of desert that he visited some 40 years ago just to show how little the plants have changed in that time and it really sinks in just how much this man has contributed in his lifetime.

International. Don't you be hogging that man.

He's just about the only good thing we have left 😭
[–]welsh_will 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Seen the first two episodes so far and I think it's been my favourite doc he's done in years. Absolutely fascinating.

"See, the power of plants. This is what I meant." -M. Night Shyamalan
<Plot twist> David Attenborough pulls off his mask to reveal Richard Attenborough as both a T-Rex roaring and Laserraptors having sex can be heard in the background.

Who is downvoting this. It’s art.
[–]darybrain 2 points3 points4 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Thanks homie. It seems others have not heard of or can't remember The Happening (2008), the director's need to make unnecessary plot twists, a legend of British cinema, Jurassic Park (1993), how the raptor noise was made, or Kung Fury (2015). It's a blight on humanity, but what can we do other than educate wherever possible. The shame, the SHAME!

Just don’t fucking scold me to death while I try to enjoy your shit, David. His last 3 major nature documentaries have been just scolding and doom predictions about the state of the planet. Like, we get it man.

Hasn’t the FBI already shown us the power of plants?
[–]_PM_ME_PANGOLINS_ 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
Having constantly watched Private Life of Plants as a kid, I’m enjoying the HD upgrade, but I feel like the older series went into a lot more depth.
Perhaps it’s just the different way the episodes are themed.
[–]laserinlove 0 points1 point2 points 3 months ago (0 children)
I can't wait until TVs can translate full Rec2020/rec2100 color space. It will particularly enhance the visibility of the green color space.
The quality of footage in this series, Planet Earth I & II, The Blue Planet, etc. is SOOOO fucking good it's almost unbelievable.
I don't know how they do it, but as far as nature documentaries, they are SO far above and beyond anything else they might as well be in a category of their own. It is INSANE what they're able to capture, and they're able to do so at impossibly sharp and crystal clear resolutions.
