This review is from: Wild China [DVD] (DVD)
I have not purchased this DVD however I have watched almost all of the series on BBC2 and it is one of the best, if not THE best BBC documentaries i have seen in recent years. If you are remotely interested in this country, you have to buy this DVD. The photography is mindblowing and the beauty of this huge country is portrayed brilliantly by the makers of this series.
The defining brilliance of this series is that it doesn't just cover the nature of china, it covers some of the amazing peoples that live there, the countless ethnic groups and their lifestyles. There are many brilliant moments in this series, some of which nearly brought me to tears.
BUY THIS DVD, NOW!

I totally agree with all those comments and have emailed the BBC saying what a superb series of documentaries these are. The camera-work, production and script are beyond reproach and at last a beautifully articulated voice-over rather than a presenter prancing all over the place telling us what he/she is seeing....with Wild China we can just be amazed at breathtaking images constantly evolving. If this series doesn't win every award there is I'll eat my dvd (then order another one!). Buy one, and another for a lucky friend.

Completely agree with you - this series has set the benchmark for future wildlife programmes. What a joy to be treated to superb photography minus the manic zooming in and out that seems to be the vogue these days. Every aspect of this series was in perfect harmony. How on earth they captured some of the shots I will never know. I liked the balance of the wildlife alongside the geography of the areas and the local inhabitants.
A mature, thoughtful and visually stunning series.
