    It's been 10 years since "Planet Earth," the breathtakingly beautiful BBC nature documentary narrated by the legendary Sir David Attenborough. Filmed over a period of four years in 64 countries, it was at the time the most expensive and comprehensive nature documentary to date.

    Now it's time to brace for the sequel. Coming by the end of November to BBC One, "Planet Earth II" looks like it's going to be utterly stunning. And you don't have to take our word for it -- check out the newly released trailer for yourself.

    We don't know a lot about it yet, but we do know it has been in production since at least 2013, when it was announced under the name "One Planet." We also know that "Planet Earth II" going to be a fair bit shorter than "Planet Earth" -- 6 episodes rather than 11.

    "A decade on from Sir David Attenborough's Planet Earth, this new series promises to be an extraordinary experience for our audience," said BBC's Charlotte Moore in a February announcement of the new name. "Filmed over three years across the globe with all the very latest technology, the series uncovers stories about the natural world we have simply never been able to witness before."

    You can currently watch 2006's "Planet Earth" on Netflix.

    Michigan is like teaching a school full of kids with a speech impediment how to rap.

    New Jersey is like attending a funeral for a priest who everyone pretends didn't molest their cousin Joey.

    This has been "What's That State Like?" with your host, QC.

    There is no other planet similar to earth. The Robinson's have been trying to find one for 19 years.

    Planet Earth II involved 117 filming trips in 40 countries, and the latest UHD and HDR formats were used in tandem with ultra-lightweight cameras and drones. All this kit enabled the crew to capture wildlife in a more crisp and immediate way than ever.

    “Visually, where Planet Earth took an almost God-like perspective and said ‘Let’s look down on the Earth and see the scale of the planet’, what Planet Earth II is doing is saying ‘Let’s get ourselves into the lives of the animals, and see it from their perspective,’” producer Mike Gunton said.

    “The visual signature of the series is that you feel like the camera is with the animals. It’s very fluid, very active. For example, you might see this wonderful lemur leaping through the forest. Normally when we’d film that, we’d be standing back observing it, but here the lemur almost jumps over your shoulder and as it’s jumping over your shoulder, you’re with it - the camera is running with it!”


    By using remotely operated cameras, the team were able to film animals just inches away.

    They were “strategically placed in locations it would be impossible to put a cameraman,” Gunton added.

    “The animals almost operate the cameras themselves! When they walk by, the camera is triggered to start and films them.

    “The snow leopard is a good example of how this has given us a new perspective. On Planet Earth, the snow leopard was filmed on the end of a telephoto lens about a kilometre away. What we’ve done is go back to the same location, and stake it out with dozens of these remotely-operated cameras.

    “So instead of the camera being far away from the animal, it’s now three feet away. Of course, you could never do that before, because the animals would never come that close to a human being.”

    The first of six Planet Earth II episodes, ‘Islands’, will be broadcast on BBC One at 8pm on 6 November.
