Schoolchildren Become the Voice of Nature in Special Planet Earth III Episode

Sir David Attenborough has been the voice of nature for over seven decades, captivating audiences worldwide with his narration of nature documentaries. However, as our planet faces increasingly urgent challenges, it's clear that one voice alone is not enough to advocate for Earth.

To mark Earth Day on April 22nd, the acclaimed BBC documentary series, Planet Earth III, has collaborated with BBC Children in Need to premiere a special episode narrated by schoolchildren. These young voices, aged between nine and thirteen, read from Sir David Attenborough's original scripts, delivering a heartwarming message about the power of youth in championing environmental causes.

The 50 student narrators, who are also budding naturalists, were carefully selected from schools recognized for their exceptional fundraising efforts for BBC Children in Need across the UK in recent years.

In a virtual assembly hosted by wildlife biologist, explorer, and presenter Lizzie Daly, an estimated 100,000 students nationwide will have the opportunity to engage with the special episode. The assembly will also feature a thought-provoking Q&A session with the producers of Planet Earth III. To complement the episode and assembly, BBC Children in Need has created classroom resource packs filled with engaging activities, including opportunities for students to narrate clips from Planet Earth III. These resource packs are available for download from the BBC Children in Need website.

This initiative, named "Voice for Nature," follows the success of its previous phase, which featured well-known voices such as Dua Lipa, Gary Lineker, and Ian Wright. Once again, the project aims to spotlight the importance of speaking up for our planet.

Lizzie Daly, the wildlife biologist, explorer, and presenter, expressed her excitement about the Earth Day event, saying: "I'm thrilled to be presenting the Become a Voice for Nature live schools assembly on Earth Day! I want to encourage schools across the UK to download a Become a Voice for Nature resource pack from the BBC Children in Need website and join us to hear more from the producers of Planet Earth III and learn more about the planet, how it impacts our lives, and what we can do to protect it. I can't wait, see you all there."

In celebration of Earth Day, viewers are encouraged to join the conversation on social media using the hashtag #BecomeAVoiceForNature. The special episode will be available to watch on iPlayer on April 22nd and will air on BBC One on May 6th.
