David Attenborough films new Sky 3D show

Satellite TV viewers will be able to watch Attenborough's next big adventure in full 3D from December.

David Attenborough has revealed his next big TV project is a one-off special filmed in full 3D, which is going to be available exclusively to Sky customers.

In the Sky 3D show, David Attenborough's Natural History Museum Adventure, the country's best-loved nature expert will walk the halls of the museum after hours, as his favourite ancient creatures are brought to life by an award-winning team of special effects artists.

The programme, due to be broadcast in December as part of Sky's Christmas line up, will be the sixth David Attenborough has made for Sky 3D.

David Attenborough said: "The Natural History Museum has always been a special place for me. I'm excited to make a film using new 3D technology, which will take the viewer on a journey through one of my favourite museums and look at it - and its inhabitants - in ways never seen before."

Dr Michael Dixon, director of the Natural History Museum, added: "Sharing the wonders of our world-class collections and our scientific expertise is at the heart of what we do. This collaboration gives a fresh take, which I hope will inspire and surprise viewers."

Sky has also announced a second new Attenborough programme, a two-part miniseries called Conquest of the Skies, expected to premiere on Sky 3D next year.

The Sky 3D channel is available at no extra cost to all Sky TV customers with a 3D television, a Sky+HD box and an Entertainment Extra+ subscription.
