    Sir David Attenborough is back this Autumn, can't wait!

    'Dynasties' will follow packs of animals in the most critical period in their lives and is already being described as “even more intense and gripping” than Blue Planet and Planet Earth.

    The show, which has been four years in the making, will follow the lives of the five animals depicted on its poster – lions, chimpanzees, hunting dogs, emperor penguins and tigers. It will reveal just how challenging life is for each of the five species as their habitats come under increasing pressure from planetary changes and the ever-present threat of humanity.

    Omg, I've not heard of this at all until now, but this is something I will look forward to. I do love the Blue Planet/Planet Earth documentaries, and for some reason Attenborough just fits so perfect for these kind of documentaries with his voice. Brilliant match in some way.

    These programs are worth the licence fee on their own, absolutely love the Blue Planet/Planet Earth series.

    Jeez more penguins. I'm kinda bored of penguins and turtles. Seems every nature documentary has to include either or both.

    Agreed. There's a list of 'A-list' animals that apparently need to be in all NHU productions. Makes it somewhat tricky as demonstrating new behavior every time won't necessarily be possible.

    That said, this show is about following the dynasty of the animals... Following individuals be born and grow up, so you should be seeing something different.

    Sigh. Obviously love these things in the past but they always choose the famous ones. Elephant, rhino, polar bear, lion, tiger, penguin, chimps, dolphin, etc. They seem to feel like they are just reusing the same footage as a new show. I'd like to see a something completely different that I can't see in a zoo.

    Are these usually in 4K HDR via iPlayer only, or can it be watched via Sky in the same format?

    'The Hunt' is still the one to beat imo. Love them all of course, but that series was fantastic.

    Just about to settle down and watch in 4k hdr. So glad 4k hdr finally became verified for my TV after months of promises!

    Edit: so this is just 4k but no hdr? :(

    It should be in Ultra HD with HDR, though I guess that might depend if your TV.
