USAToday says, “Planet Earth beautifully fulfills its promise: to show you the world in a way you’ve never seen it before.” The Washington Post states, "Planet Earth sets a new standard in nature documentaries. Heck, even Oprah has this to say, "I’ve been in television all of my life, and I have never seen anything this good on television—ever."
Now that you’ve viewed the earth as its never been seen before, meet the people that brought you this groundbreaking series. That’s right, on April 24 at 1 PM EST; the DEN will be hosting a webinar with Dr. Penny Allen (pictured to the left), one of the BBC producers in the field during the filming of Planet Earth. Dr. Allen joined the BBC Natural History Unit in 1996 as a researcher on The Blue Planet, a landmark series on the natural history of the world’s oceans. After completing the Blue Planet series, Dr. Allen worked as an Assistant Producer on ‘The Abyss – Live’, which allowed millions of people in Europe and England to watch a live broadcast of an ROV dive in Monterey Bay. Now she shares her experience in her latest adventure, the making of Planet Earth.
