5.0 out of 5 stars Simply magical - makes you proud to be British!, 10 Nov 2009

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Living Britain: The Wildlife Year [DVD] (DVD)
As an avid viewer of wildlife documentaries, I can honestly say that this is one of the best I have ever seen, if not THE best. It's a truly magical celebration of our British wildlife, set within the context of the changing seasons and the interrelationships between wildlife and man. The only drawback (though a very minor one) is that it now feels a little dated, though this only reflects the fact that (presumably) there was a delay of several years in its release. This does not, however, detract from such a wonderful and well-produced series, and I strongly recommend this to anyone with an interest in our wildlife, landscape and natural heritage.

I am speaking for myself because it's my review! If people choose to identify with being English rather than British, that's up to them - as long as they don't foist it upon the rest of us, which, with respect, is exactly what you are doing.

However, when it comes to wildlife, and like most people, I certainly see things in terms of the British Isles as a whole rather than any specific nation, and only us petty-minded humans recognise the nation states that make up these islands. The DVD is also called 'Living Britain', and as such it is about BRITISH as opposed to English wildlife. And to point out that our wildlife, as portrayed in this DVD, makes me proud to be British does not in any way imply that anybody, including me, needs a reason or excuse to be proud of their national identity, however they choose to express this.

Within the context of my review, your comment is therefore intrinsically flawed and does not make any sense. And that's quite apart from the fact that, with respect, potential buyers of this dvd are probably as uninterested as I am in your views on all of this, and I certainly do not appreciate having them thrust upon me in this manner. In any event, this is supposed to be a forum for discussing the product itself rather than your views on national identity, so perhaps in future you should be mindful of this, not to mention a little more considerate of others, when posting such comments.
