Sir David Attenborough is back on BBC ONE at the moment with his latest insight into the amazing natural wonders of the planet, Seven Worlds, One Planet. It’s a stunning show, not least of all for the music and theme song that goes with it, which you can find out more about below.Advertisement The name of the show is a pretty good explanation in itself of what the idea behind it is. Essentially, it starts from the standpoint that our earth used to consist of one big super-continent called Pangaea. Around 175 million years ago it began to break apart before reforming into the seven continents that we now have.
The show tells the story of each of the continents as little worlds in themselves, looking at how the unique environments shaped the animals that live there. From the arid Savannah of Africa to the freezing tundra of Antarctica, taking in the vast Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia along the way.
The first episode of Seven Worlds, One Planet aired on BBC ONE on Sunday the 27th October 2019 at 6:15pm, with Antarctica as its focus, following the theme song-heavy introduction to the entire series. It’s also available on BBC iPlayer and then the remaining 6 episodes will arrive weekly on Sundays at the same time with Asia taking centre stage for Episode 2.
Seven Worlds, One Planet song and music video
Both the intro title and the outro for Seven Worlds, One Planet feature parts of the same theme song music song, composed by Hans Zimmer and Jacob Shea. It makes for an epic start for the show, building up the drama of the series with quiet strings and horns.
The nature programme also adds in the end credits song, Out There, composed by Si, Christopher Braide and Hans Zimmer, which uses elements of the music from the main theme. You can take a listed to the song in full in the music video video below:Advertisement If you want to listen to the intro theme song as it in the show, without Sia’s vocals in the music video above, you can check it out a little in the short trailer below. However, the good news is that the full score for the show, composed by Hans Zimmer and Jacob Shea is available to buy.
