[ENT] Sir David Attenborough’s Blue Planet dubbed ‘most influential TV show ever’

Sir David Attenborough’s Blue Planet has been named the most influential TV show ever.

It took more than a third of the vote after highlighting the impact of single-use plastic on our oceans.

Sir David, 94, also took the second spot with his Planet Earth series, which helped raise awareness of the natural world.

But it’s not just documentaries that change how viewers think.

Next on the list was Killing Eve, starring Jodie Comer as assassin Villanelle – meaning the top three spots were taken by BBC1 shows.
