This is a natural life documentary at its best. The quality of images is not fantastic but good enough and
it is absolutely fascinating to watch lions going around their "business" , without the
interference of a presenter trying to be funny, talking about their personal lives
and appearing more on screen than the real
subject of the documentary, as in many documentaries made in the last 5-8 years.
It is refreshing to watch this documentary about lions that is actually
I watched it many years ago and asked for a friend to record it. She did, vhs, but she used
that 6 hours economy mode and the copy turned out to be unwatchable.
Now, finally, National Geographic is bringing this excellent series of documentaries to dvds.
One word of warning. Nature can be very cruel and many
scenes, such as lions eating a zebra alive, will be too uncomfortable for some to watch.
But, then again, there are far worse things on daily news.
