Luke Rollason's 'Planet Earth III' is a low-budget, one-man nature documentary set in a future where our worst predictions came true – following ecological collapse, thousands of endangered species are extinct, including the BBC. But one plucky (and unpaid) intern isn’t giving up, and right on the programming schedule,and we’re getting series three. Armed with obsolete office supplies and a surreal imagination, nature’s weirdos are brought back to life by the ‘hugely entertaining’ (Chortle) Luke Rollason.
"an ever-playful hour of silliness from a fertile comic mind" (Chortle)
