The powerful trailer reveals more about Dynasties – the newest BBC wildlife programme fronted by Sir David Attenborough. The theme of the series surrounds family and focuses on how five groups of species protect their own whilst enduring dramatic change, due to various environmental factors.

Lions, Penguins, Tigers, Chimps and Hunting Dogs are stars of the show, and judging by the newly released trailer, it is set to make for intense and emotionally provoking television. As to be expected off the back of wonderfully captured predecessors Blue Planet and Planet Earth.

According to a BBC spokesperson, the show is: “an intense portrayal of the lives of these animals as they unfold, day-by-day, hour-by-hour, where the tiniest incident may end up having a huge consequence on their future.

“Their chances of success depend on their own strength of character, their choices and on luck. But these animals do not operate alone – their success or failure will also hinge on how they work with, or against their own families”

Dynasties has yet to receive an official air date, but rumour suggests that it will air before the end of the year. Not long to wait ladies and gentleman!

Here is the trailer:
