This review is from: David Attenborough - The Private Life of Plants [DVD]  (DVD)
An enjoyable romp through the world of plants in the Attenborough style but he clearly is not an expert. Many errors in names he pronounces and SO many more fascinating aspects of plant evolution and function should have been shown. But many are shown in great perfection nonetheless. The time lapse sequences are always of great value to us chattering apes to understand their ways. ALL producers of natural history programs should read 'In Praise of Plants' by Francis Hallé which is very helpful in putting things in the right perspective!! So few episodes given to a fundamental subject is a symptom of our blinkered zoocentrist attitude. Ten on the bird (which are only one type of animal after all), series for goodness sake, and only six for an entire kingdom of life?? This is not good enough!
