Actor and television host Dingdong Dantes is exploring more unchartered territories to discover fascinating stories told through the work of local heroes in the three-part anniversary special of GMA Network's award-winning infotainment program, Amazing Earth.
Since the advent of the program, Dingdong has shown his immeasurable commitment to deliver exciting adventures and stories to viewers every week as he treks dirt roads, wades in rivers, and climbs mountains. Even with the pressing concerns brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic, the television host proves to be a faithful eco-warrior through and through.
“Team Amazing Earth has a lot in store for our viewers in celebration of our third anniversary. We know na with the pandemic, hindi lahat ay nakakapasyal to explore the many beautiful sights that this planet can offer. Kaya naman our program is very much excited to take our viewers to more breathtaking destinations across the country and around the world,” Dingdong said of the show’s three-part anniversary episodes.
The award-winning actor also expresses his take on how their program can be of help in advocating environmental protection, “We feature local heroes para makita natin kung ano ba ‘yung mga puwede nating gawin for our environment and it’s not just limited to tree planting; it could be as simple as educating everyone tungkol sa mga kuwentong bayan na may kinalaman sa kalikasan.”
Now on its new primetime timeslot, Amazing Earth's special episodes feature wildlife stories from the BBC nature documentary Seven Worlds, One Planet, presented by renowned narrator David Attenborough and filmed across seven continents in 41 countries.
Last Sunday, viewers were able to get warm and cozy with the wildlife living in the European hinterlands – from the mountainous regions of Italy and Spain to the forests of France and Finland to the freezing Arctic Circle. The episode showcased suspense-filled ways of female brown bears, male musk ox, wolves, red deers, and Barbary macaques in their natural habitats.
In the same episode, Dingdong had an exclusive interview with Mayor Vico Sotto in the Pasig Rainforest Park. The millennial mayor talked about the inroads they are making environment-wise in Pasig, spearheaded by their constituents’ floating farm concept.
Amazing Earth, which airs 7:40 p.m. before Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho on GMA-7, is under the direction of Rico Gutierrez.
Viewers abroad can also catch the program via GMA's flagship international channel, GMA Pinoy TV.
