Earthflight, narrated by David Tennant, is now available in the BBC America Shop!
David Tennant narrates this exhilarating adventure, filmed over four years with help from camera-carrying birds, drones, paragliders and remote-control microflight planes. Feel your heart pound as you scramble with snow geese to escape the talons of a bald eagle above North America. Soar with cranes over Venice and the white cliffs of Dover. Sail over South American mountains, jungles and waterfalls with hummingbirds and condors. Circle with vultures high above African plains, and navigate a dangerous Himalayan pass with demoiselle cranes on their way to India. This wondrous aerial spectacle will make your spirits soar!
David Tennant narrating things is the best things.
Yes! Each month’s Doctors Revisited premieres the last Sunday in August. The BBC America Tumblr will probably post a trailer soon.

Vengeance on Varoswill represent the Sixth Doctor’s era next month in BBC America’s _Doctor Who: The Doctors Revisited_ celebratory season.

Hello Doctor Who subreddit! BBC America is looking to do a series of short documentary pieces about a few extraordinary Doctor Who fans across America. Ideally these Whovians should have an interesting job/life/Handcrafted TARDIS and be willing to be filmed for a day or so.
