Channel 4 to air Björk and David Attenborough documentary this Saturday (July 27)

The nature documentary uniting Bjork and legendary broadcaster David Attenborough will be aired on Channel 4 this Saturday (July 27).

'Attenborough And Bjork: The Nature Of Music' looks at the evolution of music, our relationship with music and how technology could impact this relationship in the future, and will be shown on Channel 4 at 7pm. It airs as part of Channel 4's Mad4Music season. Scroll down for a short clip of the film.

Bjork's multimedia 'Biophilia' project will feature strongly in the film, and Attenborough will show how music exists in the natural world, using footage of the lyre bird, reed warbler and blue whales.

The film's executive producer, Lucas Ochoa, has said of the documentary: "Born from Björk's revolutionary music project [2011's 'Biophilia'], we are thrilled to be able to document this incredible journey with her; she is undeniably one of the most iconic figures in popular culture and truly pushes boundaries like no other artist does."

Bjork and Attenborough first collaborated in 2011 when the BBC presenter and naturalist provided an introduction and narration to Bjork's three-week Manchester International Festival residency. Bjork has previously declared her admiration for Attenborough in a Rolling Stone interview, describing him as "my rock star".
