Apple TV+ has unveiled the first look at a trio of documentary series that celebrates humanity and the wonder of the natural world.
Led by a star-studded lineup of narrators including Oscar and Golden Globe-winner Olivia Colman, Golden Globe-winner Tom Hiddleston and Golden Globe-nominee Paul Rudd, each new Apple Original will showcase never-before-seen footage, groundbreaking technology and dynamic storytelling.
Premiering on Apple TV+ in the autumn across 100 countries, the first of six episodes, ‘Tiny World’ will debut on October 2nd. Narrated by Paul Rudd, ‘Tiny World’ takes a unique perspective on the natural world, exploring the ingenuity and resilience of the smallest animals on the planet. Brand new camera technology allows us, for the very first time, to see the world through the eyes of the tiniest creatures and witness the extraordinary things they do to survive.
Olivia Colman narrates ‘Becoming You, which premieres on November 13th, a global child development series that explores how the first 2000 days on earth shape the rest of our lives. Told through the eyes of over 100 children across the world, from Nepal to Japan and Borneo, each episode offers a thought-provoking look at how children learn to think, speak and move from birth to five-years-old. It underscores how different our journeys can be but ultimately tells the story of our shared humanity and community when it comes to raising children.

Premiering on December 4th, Tom Hiddleston will narrate ‘Earth At Night In Colour’. The episode uses next-generation cameras to reveal the nocturnal lives of animals, in colour, for the first time ever. Filmed across six continents, from the Arctic Circle to the African grasslands, this pioneering series follows the moonlit dramas of animals at night, revealing new insights and never before seen behaviours.
These new documentary series will join ‘Long Way Up,’ the anticipated, epic new motorcycle series that is an adventure in both travel and friendship, starring and executive produced by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman, that will debut globally on Apple TV+ on Friday, September 18.
