Do you think you have what it takes to make the next Planet Earth?

BBC One is looking for nine people to take part in the experience of a lifetime. Encountering extraordinary animals in amazing locations and testing yourself to the limit, this series will culminate with one exceptional individual securing a year’s work placement at the BBC’s award winning, world famous Natural History Unit.

Would your holiday of a lifetime involve seeing one of the big five in their natural habitat? Maybe you long to get off that beaten tourist track? Do you get up at dawn to capture the perfect sunrise?

Whatever your age and background, as long as you can illustrate your passion for the natural world we want to hear from you.

To apply, please email your name to and an application form will be emailed to you.

Deadline for applications 26/11/08.

Successful candidates may spend up to ten weeks away from home in spring 2009.
