BBC is the most savored channel of many when it comes to nature documentaries. If you are a die-hard fan of films and documentaries on wild life and nature but find it difficult to follow all the programs, then we have some good news for you.
BBC has unleashed its much-awaited original-content channel on YouTube. Known as Earth Unplugged, this YouTube-only web portal is for BBC’s natural history division, BBC Earth, and will feature new and original content on nature that’s unavailable elsewhere.
Earth Unplugged will showcase a slew of new films created for their digital audience, and the corporation says that their channel will become viewers most sought after destination for wild life and nature. Through this channel, BBC Worldwide’s Earth Productions division will host seven new programs every week. The new, web-centric offerings will include:
- Earth Juice: A weekly news magazine that will discuss the latest discoveries in the world of nature.
- Walking with Dinosaurs: Exclusive dinosaur videos for Earth Unplugged, containing new sketchosaurus.
- Meet My Planet: A program that will feature interviews with people who have been inspired by wild life and nature.
- Deadliest…: A YouTube spin-off of the BBC’s popular TV show – Deadly 60. It will feature a close look at the planet’s deadliest animals and their inhospitable habitats.
- Amazing Animal Babies: A program that will showcase short feature films on baby animals.
- Zoo La La: This program will take you on a world tour to explore some extraordinary animal behavior. The program will also feature Bugface, a show that will focus on insects.
- Earth Files: It will cover stories from the nature, with a digital makeover through graphics and music.
Through Earth Unplugged, BBC is planning to connect to a new audience all around the world. Amanda Hill, Managing Director for BBC Earth says, “YouTube offers a fantastic opportunity to reach people and grab their attention with innovative nature content that will captivate and inspire.”
However, BBC has announced that it will not make its shows available on iPlayer. BBC already operates a number of YouTube channels, like Top Gear and Doctor Who among them, but all of them show clips from already-broadcasted shows. Earth Unplugged, on the contrary, will feature only original programs.
