Nature's Great Event any better than Planet Earth?
on 2 December 2009
I love the series Planet Earth when I first watched it on DVD. Nature's Great Events was to me still of very high quality filming by BBC Natural History (my favourite Nat. Hist. film producer) BUT subject-wise, I was quite disappointed as the series is a kinda of recycling many of the scenes that were already on Planet Earth. However, the only new part to the series was the episode on the Great Salmon Run...it was really superb; how the underwater scenes were filmed, of the Grizzly bears trying to fish dead salmons from the bottom of the river! Very good narration by Sir David Attenborough (I love his series and many of the series by him were actually filmed in the Agriculture Research Stations where I work!). If you have bought a copy of Planet Earth, well, Nature's Great Events is perhaps just another 'version' of Planet Earth. Recommended if you have not seen Planet Earth yet.
