British naturalist David Attenborough, 92, who narrates the series, hosted the event at Londons Natural History Museum.

Charles, who paid tribute to Attenboroughs work, made his first speech on the environment in 1968 and has long warned of the dangers of human damage to the natural world.

“What I want to know is how can we possibly sacrifice our childrens and grandchildrens entire future, let alone the future of all life on this miraculous planet by not doing what is required now,” he said in a speech at the event.

He said he hoped “Our Planet” would educate hundreds of millions of people around the world about what action was required. Charles also said it was a source of great pride that both his sons had taken up the cause of conservation.

The eight-part series, which showcases the natural world and the threats it faces, will be released on Friday.

“Be responsible careful citizens of this planet which is our only home, and for the creatures that live in it.”

More than 600 crew members were involved in the four-year project, filming in 50 countries.
