Contrary to popular belief suggesting that millenials aren’t interested in anything but their smart phones, BBC has recently confirmed that their hit documentary series Planet Earth 2 has more viewers in the 16-35 age demographic than reality TV show The X Factor.

Their most popular episode, the ‘Mountains’ second installment, scored 1.8 million young viewers out of their 12 million in a week rather than The X Factor’s 1.4 million out of seven million.

The series’s presenter Sir David Attenborough attributes its success to the soundtrack composed by Hans Zimmer; improvements in technology; and young viewers’ fixation on the importance of the planet’s future.

Planet Earth made history by becoming the first wildlife documentary to be shot in high-definition. The show not only provides incredible snapshots of a world still mostly unexplored, but it also shows the ever-increasing amount of impact made by climate change on the environment. You can tune into its next episode via the BBC at 8:00PM on Sundays.
