Sales include the pre-sale of the new 11-hour history series Planet Earth. It has been produced by Alastair Fothergill, the BBC, Discovery and NHK

In another set of new deals with Channel 7, BBC Worldwide has licensed pioneering new factual programming. One show is Genghis Khan which employs state-of-the-art digital effects combined with live-action footage. It was shot entirely on location on the Asian Steppe.
