Sir David Attenborough and Sir Michael Palin have reflected on the coronavirus pandemic and how it has taught us about global co-operation in a brand new clip.

The two broadcasters have teamed up for a conversation that is set to be exclusively played in cinemas alongside David’s new documentary, David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet when it is released on September 28.

In the video, which was uploaded to WWF UK’s YouTube channel, we see the pair discussing the pandemic, with Michael, 77, noting that it has ‘involved the whole world’.

As he asks if this means different countries can come together and further understand what this means for nature, David, 94, responded: ‘Well I hope, it would be nice to think so.

‘While there are important world leaders who deny some basic scientific principles and say such absurd things, it’s rather a gloomy forecast.

‘I suppose the best thing that could come out of it is that we would realise is that we are all in it together. We have to co-operate.’

The national treasure added that co-operating together is not always about ‘gaining things’, rather it is about ‘coming to agreements’ with others.

He continued: ‘The time for nationalism is over. Internationalism has to be what we must look forward to, to bring about a near greater equality between what nations take from the world… Western Europe has taken a lot and the time perhaps has come to give.’

David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet will take a look at humanity’s impact on nature, aiming to provide a hopeful message for future generations.

The film will premiere in select cinemas across the UK and other countries such as Australia and Ireland, before being given a wider release in those nations. It will then be released to Netflix in October.

It comes after David recently joined Instagram, sharing a video to raise awareness about the concerning future of our planet.

He has since beaten Jennifer Aniston’s record to become the fastest person to reach one million followers on the social media platform, which is not too shabby at all.

David Attenborough: A Life On Our Planet, will debut in cinemas on September 28 before arriving on Netflix on October 4.
