The documentary was released alongside a book about his impressive career, which spanned almost seven decades.

On a clip under his handle @davidattenborough he said, “Hello, my name is David Attenborough and I've been on radio and television for 60 years, but this is my first time on Instagram.

“I'm taking this step and exploring this new way of communicating with myself because, as we all know, the world is in trouble.

“Continents are burning, glaciers are melting, coral reefs are dying, fish are disappearing from our oceans, the list goes on and on.

“But we know what to do about it. That's why I'm tackling this new communication path for myself.

“For the next few weeks I'll be recording messages to explain what the problems are and how we can deal with them. Join in or stay tuned as we said in the early days of radio. & # 39;
