David Attenborough on the Great Barrier Reef 9 (c) Atlantic Productions.

London – Multiple award-winning indie Atlantic Productions has signed a distribution deal with Entertainment One Television (eOne) which encompasses worldwide rights (excluding UK, AU and NZ) for David Attenborough’s Great Barrier Reef (3 x 60’), the latest landmark series from the world-renowned naturalist.

From the team behind Attenborough’s two BAFTA-winning 3D films and triple Emmy-winning BBC series, First Life, David Attenborough’s Great Barrier Reef (BBC) will be produced by BAFTA and Emmy-winning filmmaker Anthony Geffen. This series will use pioneering camera technology and draw on the latest research to investigate the reef in revelatory ways including using satellite scanning to show the 2,300km expanse of living coral, and revolutionary macro lenses that will capture the reef’s tiniest, normally unseen, life-forms.

Combined with David Attenborough’s masterful storytelling and trademark engagement with wildlife, this series will provide a uniquely authored insight into a global treasure, and uncover the history and secrets of this richly bio-diverse landmark.
