BBC America’s critically acclaimed and jaw-dropping nature
documentary, Planet Earth, is back
with an all-new series featuring six brand new episodes, exploring cities,
grasslands, deserts, jungles, mountains and islands, plus a behind the scenes
look at making II.
It’s in the first episode about remote island habitats that
audiences will meet the Buller’s albatross, which breeds on islands around New
Zealand. And ET has your first look at the dramatic reunion between one male
albatross and his longtime female mating partner as the two come together for
the first time in months. Even though mating is a priority, there’s a ritual
that must be performed, just like any old couple would do that’s been together
for that long.
