There is one thing you can always count on, even when the whole world seems upside down, and that’s the soothing voice of veteran broadcaster Sir David Attenborough.

His next big wildlife series comes to BBC America on Saturday, February 18, and is a follow-up to the awe-inspiring Planet Earth series from ten years ago, entitled Planet Earth II: Back in the Habit(at).

Okay, so that last bit isn’t true. It is called Planet Earth II, however, in a sort of homage to movie sequels, which is fair enough given its sheer scale and breathtaking photography.

Expect plucky penguins, a snake chase, and lovesick sloths galore. But in the meantime, here’s a chance to watch the great man at work. A video released on Sunday (December 11) shows Sir David in the studio as he records the voiceover for the show, and gives us a glimpse at how involved the 90-year-old presenter still is in shaping the series.

And if that weren’t enough, celebrated movie composer Hans Zimmer is also on hand to add his voice to the chorus of admiration for the legendary broadcaster:

Planet Earth II starts January 28 on BBC America. We know this waiting game is tough, so in the meantime, feel free to indulge in these animal videos that make us the happiest.

Doesn’t the sound of his voice just make everything better?
