PLANET EARTH: A CELEBRATION
August 31, 2020  | By David Bianculli

Various Networks, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
SPECIAL PREMIERE: This new special, presented by BBC America and simulcast on sister networks such as IFC and Sundance, is the best sort of TV recycling. It takes a series of the best sequences from previous outstanding documentary miniseries Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II, and re-edits them, with new narration by David Attenborough and new music by Hans Zimmer and others. No question about it: There’s a staggering amount of natural beauty on hand here. And Attenborough, as always, is to be treasured no less than the lands and creatures he so lovingly describes. For full reviews, see David Hinckley's All Along the Watchtower, and Mike Hughes' Open Mike
