Presented by world-renowned naturalist Sir David Attenborough (Blue Planet II, Planet Earth II) and executive produced by Emmy®-winner Mike Gunton (Planet Earth II), Dynasties follows five of the world’s most celebrated but endangered animals, as they do whatever it takes to survive and protect the next generation.

Dynasties will focus in never-seen-before detail on one particular family from each species per episode, as they play politics, fight battles, make alliances, launch take-overs, battle rivals, and win family feuds:

  • Emperor penguins in the frozen wastes of Antarctica
  • Chimpanzees on the edge of the Sahara in Senegal, West Africa
  • Lions on the savannahs of Kenya’s Masai Mara
  • Painted wolves on the floodplains of the Zambezi river in Zimbabwe
  • Tigers in the jungles of Bandhavgarh, India
  • Dynasties will tell the unique and emotional stories of some of the greatest families in nature, as they face unforeseen challenges not only from their rivals, but from changes to their environment, and the impact humanity has had on our fragile ecosystem that will ricochet throughout generations.
