It’s rainy and dull outside, which can only mean one thing… Netflix, snug jumpers, hot chocolate and David Attenborough.

Yes, the much-awaited new documentary by the nature king lands on Netflix on Sunday 4 October and with this miserable weather, it couldn’t be better timed.

The documentary, titled A Life On Our Planet, is set to focus on David’s own life and career, as well as the changes our eco-system has suffered from over the past 50 years.

The exciting new documentary has been produced by award-winning film-makers Silverback Films and global environmental organisation WWF.

It has been described as: “A powerful, first-hand account of humanity's impact on nature and a message of hope for future generations,” and if David’s past documentaries are anything to go by, we’re sure it’s going to be amazing.

We’ll journey through the 94 year old’s incredible life, as well as focusing on "the man who has seen more of the natural world than any other".

Star of the show David has been seen in a brief clip released by WWF, in which he can be seen playing with monkeys in the rainforest.

He says in the clip: “To begin with it was quite easy. People had never seen pangolins before on television. They'd never seen sloths before.

“They'd never seen the centre of New Guinea before. It was the best time of my life."

David, who has just joined Instagram and built up a huge following base of 5.1 million followers in record speed, recently spoke to the little royals, George, Charlotte and Louis, in a very sweet clip.

The clip opens with Prince George, seven, saying: “Hello David Attenborough, what animal do you think will be extinct next?”

To which David replies: “Well let’s hope there won’t be any because there are lots of things we can do when animals are in danger of extinction. We can protect them.”

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge’s youngest son, two year old Prince Louis, is the last to ask David a question as he sweetly says: “What animal do you like?”

David responds: “I think I like monkeys the best because they’re such fun. They can jump all over the place and they don’t bite at least… some do, but if you’re a bit careful they don’t bite.

“And they’re so funny and I like them a lot. Mind you, you can’t have monkeys sitting around at home because that’s not where they live, they live out in the rain forest.”
