This review is from: David Attenborough's First Life [DVD] (DVD)
What can I say... another GREAT video by BBC, I really enjoyed it. It is NOT a scientific text of paleontology, but it's a great and easy to follow video of "let's see the things you only studied on black and white tables /fossils in a dusty room".
Now these many creatures are vivid and alive in my imagination and I can't forget them. Very enjoyable.
And Attenborough is great. He speaks slowly, something a foreigner like me really appreciates: one can follow each word.
After the old 1986 or 1989 (!) video on early life, this one was really needed, with modern techinques for reconstructing the creatures and new updated information.
...And seeing alive trilobites moving in the sea is a wonderful dream.
