"David Attenborough says A Life On Our Planet (Netflix) is his “witness statement”, a 90-minute summary of nearly 70 years in broadcasting. The crime is the destruction of Earth’s habitats, for which he has had a ringside seat. If that sounds slightly po-faced, there’s an anger in this tone that hasn’t always been present in his work. This is the kind of film that could slip into self-congratulation, but the way Attenborough tells it, it’s only because of the urgency of the cause that he is allowing himself to be treated in such a valedictory manner."
– Ed Cumming, The Independent
