The River Group to launch BBC Earth magazine

The River Group and BBC Worldwide have announced a new publishing partnership that will see BBC Earth brought onto the newsstand in a monthly magazine format.

BBC Earth magazine aims to inspire consumers with the most incredible pictures, stories and characters from the natural world and reflects BBC Earth’s mission to connect every man, woman and child with the wonders of the planet. The new title will also be the go-to place for special, behind-the-scenes access to the teams and the experts who bring us closer to our natural world.

“BBC Earth will be packed full of unmissable photography and inspiring features across nature, science, people and space, tailored for the whole family. It will inform readers about what is happening in the month ahead, from the latest BBC Earth programmes to events, natural wonders and places to visit” Sharon Kirby, group publisher launches, The River Group

“I’ve always wanted to publish a magazine like BBC Earth. It is a privilege to have access to such an extraordinary wealth of BBC content, knowledge and magic and to be able to make this come to life in the pages of a beautiful new monthly title. The fact this marks the launch of a new partnership between The River Group and BBC Worldwide is the most exciting way to celebrate the future of our two businesses working together” Nicola Murphy, CEO, The River Group.

“Our partnership between BBC Worldwide and The River Group is a great opportunity to deliver fascinating, engaging editorial content to our audiences and we are thrilled that our first launch together will be BBC Earth Magazine, adding an exciting extension to the brand” Andrew Moultrie, director consumer products and publishing, BBC Worldwide

BBC Earth magazine will appear across UK newsstands and in multiple overseas territories from 3 November.
