BBC Studios and concert promoter FKP Scorpio UK have announced March 31st 2022 as the new rescheduled date for the highly anticipated UK concert premiere of Seven Worlds, One Planet.
The new date will be hosted by BAFTA winning British explorer, Naturalist and TV presenter, Steve Backshall accompanied by the very best hand picked musicians that make up the specially created Seven Worlds Symphony Orchestra & Choir, conducted by Matthew Freeman.
Not only a TV presenter and acclaimed wildlife writer, Backshall is also a rock climber, mountaineer and endurance sports enthusiast who was recently appointed Member of the order of the British Empire (MBE) for service to charity and wildlife conservation.
When this landmark series, narrated by Sir David Attenborough, was first broadcast in the UK, it took viewers on an epic journey that not only celebrated the diversity of life on each of the seven continents, but also highlighted the many challenges faced by nature in a modern world dominated by humanity.
It went on to become BBC One’s most-watched factual TV show of 2019 and will finally celebrate its UK premiere live concert performance at The O2 arena London in a very special one-off presenting the very best footage and music from the highly acclaimed television series.
Seven Worlds, One Planet Live in Concert presents a selection of the most spectacular scenes from the television series displayed on a giant state of the art 4K Ultra HD LED screen. The series took a staggering 1,500 people over 4 years to make, including 92 film shoots across 41 countries.
Accompanying the footage on screen, the series hugely emotive score, written by Academy Award winner Hans Zimmer and Jacob Shea for Bleeding Fingers Music, will be performed by a full symphony orchestra and choir, conducted by Matthew Freeman. The score also features the captivating song ‘Out There’, produced specifically for the series by Zimmer and the multi-award winning artist SIA.
Zimmer said, “Following up Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II was no easy task, but the BBC have outdone themselves yet again with the magnificent Seven Worlds, One Planet. It was a true honour to return to the series to compose the theme with Jacob Shea for Bleeding Fingers Music, and a special pleasure to collaborate with Sia for 'Out There'. These stories of nature are so important for us to show and preserve for future generations, and I am honoured to be a part of spreading this message. I am excited for everyone to get a chance to listen to the incredible score.”
During the concert, the audience will be taken on a journey of discovery through the ‘seven worlds’ - from the colourful paradises of South America to Asia’s vast wilderness; from the unforgiving deep freeze of the Antarctic to the searing heat of Africa; from North America via Australia to wildlife closer to home in Europe.
