I’ve never come across an individual who hasn’t been either amazed, gripped or fascinated by the BBC programme Planet Earth.
Sunday nights were made for animals, especially when combined with the silky sound of David Attenborough narrating the intimate and unique look into their lives.
Well fans of the show, your day has just got a whole lot better because the BBC have decided to share a shed load of footage that will keep you entertained for hours!
Forty hours to be precise, divided among four hour-long videos, showing footage from the show, however there’s one small catch.
Instead of hearing the soothing sounds of the legendary Mr Attenborough, all you’ll hear are the sounds of scenery, including everything from the icy highs of mountain peaks to birds chirping in grass-filled landscapes.
Although, this classic scene could hardly be considered relaxing:

Over the past few weeks, the channel has been rolling out the peaceful clips, via its Earth Unplugged YouTube page as part of the ‘Real Happiness Project’.
So far, we’ve been taken on a journey from the Jungle, through to Deserts and even up Mountains, with the BBC planning to release another two.
That’s definitely one great way of drowning out my office workers and their crappy music choices! #SorryNotSorry
More importantly though, how much longer have we got to wait for the next installment!!
Note: UNILAD is not responsible for those caught slacking by their bosses having relaxed a little too hard at work listening to sounds endorsed in this article!
