While we’re going about our daily business, millions of incredible things are happening around the world – from mayflies who live for one day and only exist to reproduce, to zebra foals crossing crocodile-infested rivers.

This long-awaited sequel to the documentary Earth follows the sun around the planet over the course of one day, as we see animals from 22 different countries facing their own struggles and finding ways to survive.

Earth: One Amazing Day

The panda is one of the many animals featured

‘There’s nothing more amazing than what happens here, day after day,’ says narrator Robert Redford.

A beautifully shot documentary that makes you realise how precious life really is.

Please note, this programme airs at 6.30pm in N Ireland.
