    When first premiering, Seven Worlds, One Planet was the BBC’s most-watched factual TV show of the year in the UK and the most popular BBC natural history series in eight years to be screened in Australia.

    The series took viewers on a journey that not only celebrated the beauty of life on each of the seven continents but also highlighted the many challenges faced by nature in the modern world. Over 1,500 people worked on the award-winning series, with 92 shoots across 41 countries, revealing an unseen wilderness of the Earth’s diverse continents.

    The BBC Earth Experience aims to inspire visitors to protect the planet through spectacular footage and an immersive experience, and in doing so, particular attention was paid to bringing the best sustainable practice to the forefront and maximizing efficiencies.

    Intrepid Travel, a Melbourne-founded and B-Corp certified small group adventure company, is the headline sponsor of the event.
