David Attenborough’s Natural History Museum Alive 3D

This project is written and presented by David Attenborough and produced by Colossus Productions (a collaboration between Sky 3D and Atlantic Productions set up to develop and produce original 3D programming for both UK and international audiences). This will mark the sixth Attenborough programme for Atlantic Productions and Sky 3D.

 

In this stunning new project Attenborough takes us on a journey through the world-famous Natural History Museum in London, revealing it as it’s never been seen before, in a compelling tale of discovery, adventure and magic.  As the doors are locked and night falls, Attenborough meets the extinct creatures that fascinate him the most, as they magically come alive in front of his eyes; dinosaurs, ice age beasts and giant reptiles.   This is a special collaboration of experts and curators from the Natural History Museum with 3D and ground-breaking CGI technology.  Set within the spectacular Natural History Museum, this 90 minute film fulfils the dreams of the nation’s favourite naturalist.

 

As Attenborough remarks, “obviously for anybody who works in natural history, this is one of the key places to come.”  Since he was boy Attenborough has been fascinated by this museum and the treasures it holds, “Leicester, where I lived, was a hundred miles away from London so coming here was quite a journey.  Each time was astonishing, just looking at cases full of butterflies. But obviously it didn’t take long for me to become fascinated by all the other creatures in the museum.”

From the stories and myths surrounding their discovery and acquisition by the museum, to the somewhat fanciful Victorian interpretations, we gain a greater understanding of these amazing extinct creatures.  Working with the world’s leading scientists from the Natural History Museum, David is able to analyse each specimen, piecing together the clues before finally revealing each creature as it has never been seen before – Where did it live? What did it eat? And most importantly what did it look like?
