Rise of Animals is Sir David Attenborough’s latest TV series, exploring the astonishing evolutionary advances that created the dazzling diversity of vertebrates which now dominate our planet.

This animal group has produced the largest, the fastest and most intelligent creatures the world has ever seen. It includes fish, amphibians, reptiles, birds and, ultimately, mammals like us.

In Rise of Animals, Sir David Attenborough’s 500 million year journey takes us around the world to the modern frontiers of paleontological research…

… and reveals how humans are the heirs to a magnificent evolutionary heritage stretching back to the first steps of life.
