10 years after blowing minds with groundbreaking documentary Planet Earth, David Attenborough returned to screens with Planet Earth 2 in early November, and the country has gone understandably mad for the series.
We swooned over sloths, shed tears for lost penguins and are currently undergoing intensive therapy to try and unsee the images of that iguana getting chased by the snakes (/ slithering spawn of hell) still haunting our nightmares from episode one.
And after the stories of snow leopards, flailing flamingos and mountain goats with frankly no regard for our cholesterol in episode two, we were delighted to see World Champion paraglider Aaron Durogati pop up to star in the “Planet Earth Diaries” in the final 10 minutes of episode two – the segment at the end of each episode which shows how the trickier shots of each episode were filmed.
Any Planet Earth viewer should remember Aaron’s contribution to the ‘Mountain’ episode with relative ease. It was rather unique.
