Keen to build on the success of hit series like Blue Planet, BBC Studios has unveiled plans for five new natural-history shows scheduled to air in China, Xu Haoyu reports.

The BBC announced a slew of new natural-history shows - One Planet: Seven Worlds, Planet Earth III, Green Planet, Perfect Planet and Frozen Planet II - to be broadcast in China.

The producers of the highly successful BBC Planet series, which examines the relationship between humankind and the natural world while tackling the major issues affecting the planet, have confirmed that five new natural-history series are currently under production.

Julia Noccoiolino, the commercial director of the BBC Studios brand in China, and Chaldean Hunter, an Australian wildlife biologist and filmmaker, who worked on Planet Earth and Frozen Planet, made the announcement recently at a media conference in Beijing.

Since the release of Planet Earth in 2006, BBC Planet titles have become a global phenomenon, with Planet Earth II and Blue Planet II attracting over a billion viewers over the past three years.

The productions of the five new series are expected to involve over 10,000 days of filming across more than 120 countries over several years.
