Two iconic Daves collaborating for a music-based nature documentary? Name a more iconic duo we’ll wait. British rap royalty Dave and everyone’s favourite national treasure Sir David Attenborough are collaborating for a new documentary, Planet Earth: A Celebration. Reimagining footage from Sir David Attenborough’s previous work, the movie will also feature work from the acclaimed film composer Hans Zimmer, reworking original scores with new compositions.
According to the BBC, the programme is “designed to lift viewers’ spirits during a time of international uncertainty” and will feature a string section of performed by the BBC Concert Orchestra with Dave performing on the grand piano.
While when we first heard the news we imagined Dave and Sir David Attenborough trekking through the wildness befriending one lonely penguin after another, we’re excited to see what the documentary has to offer as it lands on BBC One later this summer.
