We are delighted to bring you this years most important documentary - We will screen the first episode of Our Planet, an 8 part documentary series focusing on the breadth of the diversity of habitats around the world, from the remote Arctic wilderness and mysterious deep oceans to the vast landscapes of Africa and diverse jungles of South America.

This series, narrated by David Attenborough, addresses issues of conservation while featuring these disparate animals in their respective home regions, and has been noted for its greater focus on humans' impact on the environment than traditional nature documentaries; centering around how climate change impacts all living creatures.

Climate change is the biggest threat to our planet and we must act.
