A little dated but still excellent.,
This review is from: David Attenborough - Life in the Freezer [DVD]  (DVD)
I was astonished to discover that this was made in 1993 - it is amazing to see how much has changed in 17 years. The transfer is most definitely not a digital remastering and the grainy quality of the film really shows up. There is also a terribly 1980s synth soundtrack and some very basic graphic illustrations and these things are really noticable in comparison to the digitally shot and orchestrally scored recent BBC nature productions. However, to compensate for this you have the pleasure of having Sir David as presenter as opposed to narrator, much less intrusive foley artist work and obviously all the wonders that the Antarctic can offer. A bargain for the price.
