BBC One Ratings - David Attenborough and the Giant Elephant

Alex Farber, 21 December 2017

Atlantic Productions’ one-off about Dame Judy’s fascination with trees was rooted in third place, behind the last leg of Gino’s Italian Coastal Escape (3.5m / 17.3%) and Coronation Street (5.9m / 27%) on ITV and BBC2’s Masterchef: The Professionals (2.8m / 13.5%).

It was short of the channel’s slot average of 4.4m (22%) for the past 12 months and could not compete with BBC1’s Attenborough And The Giant Elephant. The one-off doc drew 4.9m (21%) in a 9pm slot on 10 December.
