The series was made in partnership with World Wildlife Fund, and was shot over four years, in 50 countries across every continent.

Netflix has revealed that a crew of over 600 people captured more than three and a half thousand days-worth of footage, ranging from the remote Arctic wilderness, to the depths of the ocean and jungles of South America.

The show acts as a warning for the world, delivered, uncompromisingly, by narrator, Attenborough.

"What we do in the next 20 years will determine the future for all life on Earth", he tells viewers. Adding to Reuters: "Be responsible careful citizens of this planet which is our only home, and for the creatures that live in it."

British royals, Prince Charles, Prince William and Prince Harry, attended the premiere with Attenborough.

At the global premiere, which was held in London's Natural History Museum, Prince Charles delivered a speech, saying: "What I want to know is how can we possibly sacrifice our children's and grandchildren's entire future, let alone the future of all life on this miraculous planet by not doing what is required now."

The streaming service has grated permission for the show to be openly aired in public for educational purposes.

"We know that many of you are as excited about these films as we are; and because of their informational aspects, you’d like to show them in an educational setting," Netflix has said in a statement. "We will permit one-time educational screenings".
