A marvellous programme,
This review is from: First Eden (Repackaged) [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this some time ago and for some reason did not watch it until today. Made in 1987, I think this is one of his best series. It is real natural history showing the effect of humans on the Mediterranean area. Beautiful photography and interesting dialogue. I am glad that I found this gem again. The message is still pertinent today - probably more so.
The presentation is marvellous and not plagued by an over-bearing musical and sound effects score. One criticism - why do underwater scenes always have to have those bubbling noises - quite ridiculous especially as they were faded out when David actually did talk whilst using diving equipment.
A marvellous and educational show.
