What is ‘Breaking Boundaries: The Science of Our Planet Earth’ about?
The 75-minute Netflix documentary finds the veteran broadcaster joining forces with sustainability scientist Professor Johan Rockström to examine the biodiversity collapse of Planet Earth, and assessing what we can do to slow our impact.
Sir David is a frequent environmental advocate, warning in a recent BBC interview that “the moment of crisis has come”, and that humanity cannot keep on saying “we’ll leave it to next year” when it comes to tackling the environmental crisis.
A full synopsis of ‘Breaking Boundaries’ reads: “Breaking Boundaries tells the story of the most important scientific discovery of our time – that humanity has pushed Earth beyond the boundaries that have kept Earth stable for 10,000 years, since the dawn of civilization.
“The 75-minute film takes the audience on a journey of discovery of planetary thresholds we must not exceed, not just for the stability of our planet, but for the future of humanity. It offers up the solutions we can and must put in place now if we are to protect Earth’s life support systems.”
You might recognise Professor Rockström from award-winning documentary ‘Before The Flood’, which follows Hollywood actor Leonardo DiCaprio as he meets with scientists and world leaders to discuss the environmental challenges planet earth is facing.
Sir David is on a roll right now — his latest documentary is hot on the heels of his 2020 documentary, ‘A Life on Our Planet’, which explores similar themes of environmental destruction and concern.
