There was a very strong reaction to David Attenborough's newest documentary
#SevenWorldsOnePlanet has taken audiences by storm.
The weekend produced a lot of great TV viewing (which mainly included football and rugby)...
But while many people were on the edge of their seats watching the sport, others sat back and marvelled at yet another excellent David Attenborough documentary.
#SevenWorldsOnePlanet aired on BBC One, and as is almost always the case with Attenborough-created documentaries, people loved it.
The first episode of the seven-part series followed the continent of Antarctica, while occasionally making reference to the ongoing climate emergency, but for the most part just showing nature at its most incredible.
And if you missed it, don't worry - the BBC have for some reason released a compilation of dozens of penguins ... doing their business, and added it to some cheerful music.
Take a look, unless you happen to be eating your dinner at the minute...

Naturally, people took to Twitter to praise the first episode of the show:
#SevenWorldsOnePlanet already has all the hallmarks of classic #DavidAttenborough. Cute baby penguins, stunning scenery and the soothing tones of Sir David. With a clear and sombering message 'This may be the most critical moment for life on Earth since the continents formed'. pic.twitter.com/SxEGjj2Jql

Truly outstanding and shocking television. We have all got to do whatever we can to save this incredible and beautiful planet and the animals on it. Thank you @BBCOne for this programme. #SevenWorldsOnePlanet

That atmospheric music, David Attenborough’s soothing voice, the stunningly beautiful photography and of course, the star of the show, our beautiful world. This is what Sunday nights were made for #SevenWorldsOnePlanet
