"One of the differentiators between the original Planet Earth series and this series is the technology," executive producer Mike Gunton told the Television Critics Association earlier this month.
Planet Earth II producers spent over three years, 40 different countries, 117 filming trips, and a total of 2089 shooting days creating this jaw-dropping look at our planet.
I wanted to find out more about these significant advances in filming technology and how they are enhancing our understanding of the natural world, not to mention what it's like working with the inspirational Sir David Attenborough.
So before, Planet Earth II Premieres Saturday, February 18 on BBC AMERICA I invited Mike Gunton onto the show today who works for BBC Worldwide and the BBC as The Creative Director of Factual and The Natural History Unit.
