‘The world has to get together. These problems cannot be solved by one nation – no matter how big that single nation is,’ he said.

‘We know what the problems are and we know how to solve them. All we lack is unified action.

‘Fifty years ago, whales were on the very edge of extinction worldwide. Then people got together and now there are more whales in the sea than any living human being has ever seen.

‘If we act together, we can solve these problems.’

Not long now! The show will be released in five parts, each depicting a different settings where dinosaurs lived during the Late Cretaceous period
