And what if the global space race never ended, but sped up as the rivals competed to dominate the solar system? That’s the intriguing premise of For All Mankind, which debuts on Apple TV+ this week. Set in an alternate history, the 10-part sci-fi drama looks at the far-reaching consequences of the Soviets getting to the moon first. ‘In the Summer of 1969, what if people gathering around their TV sets to watch the moon landing saw a Russian cosmonaut taking the first steps on the lunar surface instead of Neil Armstrong?’ says producer Ronald D Moore. ‘It’s a shock to the American people.

How do you find things that are new?’ says Attenborough, whose new series looks at Earth’s spectacular wildlife continent by continent across seven episodes, starting with Antarctica. ‘Each of these continents has a different geological structure, and a different way in which life has arrived and developed there in isolation,’ explains the 93-year-old. ‘Every episode has sequences that take my breath away.’ INSIGHTS Those sequences include this week’s remarkable drone footage of killer whales working together to…
