David Attenborough has signed up to present a new series of Natural Curiosities on UKTV’s factual channel Eden.
Each episode of the new ten-part run will focus on two different creatures with curiously distinctive natural adaptations that are linked together by a common theme, such as rhinos and hedgehogs, both of which rely on their armoured coatings for survival.
The show’s first series, which saw Attenborough examining creatures whose biology fascinated him, was Eden’s highest-rated show of all time, and the series as a whole was watched by 1.6m people.
“It is such a privilege to work with Sir David again,” said UKTV’s Catherine Catton. “Sir David’s captivating storytelling and the fascinating content made series one of David Attenborough’s Natural Curiosities a massive hit with viewers.
“There are many more natural curiosities to explore and therefore we are thrilled the second series will be double the length of the first, providing more exclusive content for Eden.”
Series two of David Attenborough’s Natural Curiosities is due to air on Eden this winter.
