Full script of the ad IN ENGLISH, REGARDLESS OF THE ORIGINAL LANGUAGE OF THE AD
SFX: Abstract music ANN: There’ll come a day when doors open in the sea And the drowned emerge To walk the salt lip of the shoreline On that day you might hear what seems to be The fluting of wind on rock Though people say there’s music under the blue-green skim Music in the walls of water A slow percussion of drums and bells in the wave-break And the dead keep time as they go Marking the beat with their footfalls Their voices caught in the tug of the undertow They say: Look back from the last of the land To the last of sky and sea And know this is all there is of it This is all we have in hand World Wildlife Fund. For a living planet.

Brief Explanation
The ocean is dying, the rainforest is disappearing and the ice is melting. WWF wanted to remind people of the fragile beauty of the world around them, and encourage them to have a more conservational perspective. To convey the aesthetic beauty of these settings in radio, three poems were written to bring to life the feeling someone would get from actually being there and to provide a sombre warning for the consequences of inaction.
