Covering material from Attenboroughs Life on Earth and The Living Planet documentary series, the lessons will focus on the map of the world and looking closer at animal behaviour.
David Attenboroughs most recent project, the feature-length documentary A Life On Our Planet, was self-described as my witness statement. The film was due to premiere on April 16 at the Royal Albert Hall, but has been delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
BBC Bitesize Daily will run for 14 weeks, and promises lessons by Jodie Whittaker (Doctor Who), One Directions Liam Payne, politician Ed Balls, Professor Brian Cox, and Eastenders actor Danny Dyer.
Alice Webb, director of BBC Childrens & Education released a statement: We said the BBC would be there for people through this crisis, and we meant it.

She added, Its vital that every child is able to continue learning and the lessons were putting on will make sure they have fun at the same time.
A number of film and television projects have been suspended or delayed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Heres a full list of all affected titles with rescheduled dates.
His nature series are quite well done.
They will all fall fast asleep. David Attenborough’s voice is an elephant tranquilizer, especially in the series about ocean life, where it’s accompanied by relaxing water sounds.
Breathtaking...and stunning...are two words that can describe the filmed images.David Attenborough's narrations are certainly good...and informative...but I find it tough to see him as some God-like genius as some do.
Of course others may disagree.
Me too when I got my first HD tv. After a while though I noticed a theme of lots of shots of animals eating other animals. Nature is cruel is the lesson I took away from it.
Why isn’t it used to put Ambien out of business.
Agree with you. During my last year of teaching 7th grade biology I showed the kids the video of the flying penquins. Several of the kids fell for it until they remembered it was April 1st. If I remember correctly one of the guys from Monty Python player him.
He’s still alive?
That is the BEST video ever!!!
I was just about to post that I like to put a playlist of his docs on and fall asleep to them.
People just don’t realize they have “Blue Planet” as an option.
TV? Too late.
Could have really been something.
Mass, free education over the airwaves. Helpong to build knowledgable, capable independent citizens. But it was never to be.
Progs wrecked it.
Internet is being destroyed now.
Progressive Big Data destroying another opportunity for mass, free education empowering a confident citizenry.
