If you love nature, you’re going to love this. The BBC’s original Planet Earth documentary was a feast for the eyes when it came out in 2006, and now they’re back with a second instalment: the imaginatively named Planet Earth II.

This month they released the extended cut of the new trailer and it’s possibly one of the most beautiful things we’ve ever seen. It promises to show viewers “life in all its wonder closer than ever before”, and shots are cut to an epic soundtrack composed by Hans Zimmer.

You can watch an agile monkey navigating a forest canopy (0:16) and see lions in action on the African plains (1:44). There are face-planting foxes (1:19) and swimming sloths (1:22), and skip to 2:04 to see an adorable bear with an itchy backside.

The show will be broadcast on the BBC in the UK in November 2016 and will be shown on channels around the world at later dates. Whenever you plan to watch it, this trailer will no doubt inspire you to see more of the beautiful world we live in.
