You've probably heard this song 1,000 times. However, when it's mixed with these images, it adds a layer of context you may not have thought about.
This is the beginning of one of the most recognizable songs in American history. Originally sung by Louis Armstrong, it was written to offer a positive and hopeful look into the future.

This version is performed by the great David Attenborough, and the
absolutely gorgeous shots of nature it features really brings out the
theme of this classic song.
