The 93-year-old historian is set to front the latest landmark series from BBC Studios Natural History Unit which will unearth the hidden world of plants.

He will take viewers on a journey to discover the aggressive, competitive and dramatic life of nature where they fight for food and light.

David said: "This is a wonderful opportunity to explore a neglected yet truly remarkable part of the natural world. Once again, the innovative approach of the BBC NHU and groundbreaking technology will reveal new and surprising wonders to the BBC One audience."

The 'Seven Worlds One Planet' narrator will travel across the globe to explore mountains and deserts, rain forests and the frozen north to find the largest living and most remarkable things to have ever existed - including trees that care for each other and plants that breed so fast they could cover the planet in a matter of months.

Executive Producer Mike Gunton said: "This series will take viewers into a world beyond their imagination - see things no eye has ever seen.

"The world of plants is a mind-blowing parallel universe; one that we can now bring to life using a whole range of exciting new camera technology. This is Planet Earth for plants!"

'The Green Planet' will see the use of brand new technology and decades of new discoveries - including new developments in robotics, moving time-lapse, super-detail thermal cameras, deep focus 'frame-stacking' and ultra high-speed to travel beyond the power of the human eye to make visible the hidden life of the world's natural beauty.
