Sir Attenborough, 94, will study the amount of damage the human race has done to the planet.

Humanity is responsible for damage caused from oil in the sea, rainforests being cut down and over-industrialisation.

The natural historian will use CGI to show us what the future holds for plant earth if we don't get our act together, but also advises us on how we can turn things around before it is too late.

In the trailer, Attenborough reveals has only just realised how extraordinary his life has been exploring the planet and being at one with nature.

He also shared: "The world is a unique and spectacular marvel, yet the way we humans live on earth, is sending it into a decline."

Sir David added: "This is my witness statement and my vision for the future."

The trailer showed various showed several animals living peacefully in their natural habitat, but also illustrated harmful acts on the environment which threaten to disrupt that.

His final piece of advice was: "Our planet is heading for disaster; we need to learn how to work with nature rather than against it, and I'm going to tell you how."

Earlier this month, Sir David Attenborough has warned that polar bears could go extinct and another major pandemic could be on the horizon if we don’t tackle climate change.

Writing in his new book, A Life on Our Planet, the broadcaster predicts a lifetime of floods, drought and the ocean turning to acid if the planet isn’t saved.

For those born today, the natural historian predicts a number of likely terrifying scenarios that the next generation could face.

In the decade beginning in 2030, after years of deforestation and the illegal burning in the Amazon basin, the world’s biggest rainforest could be reduced by 75 per cent.
