Product description

Product Description

Documentary narrated by David Tennant that films dolphins from a unique perspective. Through the use of cameras disguised as different marine animals, the film-makers were able to capture dolphin life from within the pod. With the dolphins accepting and allowing the cameras into their lives, the documentary explores a range of dolphin species and behaviours.

By Rowena Hoseason HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWER on 10 Jan. 2014
Format: DVD
This two-part BBC documentary showcases some stunning footage of wild dolphins, porpoises and orca. Each episode is a 60 minute treasure, combining unique filming of different pods with cheerful commentary. There's even a Blu-ray version which does full justice to the astonishing slo-mo shots of dolphins leaping, twirling and frolicking in the surf. It's not all mammals, either: there's some amazing sequences of beautiful marine life in action - look out for the serene, flying giant rays, stacked five high as they hunt along the ocean floor. Gorgeous.

Each programme hops back and forth between a couple of locations, highlighting different types of dolphin or whale at interesting moments. So we follow a young bottlenose from infancy to the moment when he leaves the pod as an adult; watch dolphins using sonar and team-tactics to hunt; see males giving females garlands of delicate seaweed; even admire the animals' surfing skills as they repeatedly catch breakers along the shoreline - seemingly just for the fun of it. Each episode contains dozens of 'wow' moments, but best for me were the shots of the killer whales co-operating to catch a meal (potentially a bit distressing for sensitive viewers...), and the sharks-infested fish feast. Loved seeing a really rare humpback dolphin, too, with its weirdly beautiful tail fin.
The team also filmed a 2000-plus gathering of dolphins, one of the rarely-seen mega-pods. Even the spy-cams couldn't really do this justice: we see a couple of dozen animals in shot and a lot of murky movement in the background. The above-water sequences of dolphins spinning and racing cargo ships, or underwater shots of them chasing bubbles are much more successful.

By M. Dowden HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 9 Jan. 2014
Format: DVD
Last year we had Penguins - Spy in the Huddle [DVD] and this year we are presented with the same sort of thing, but exploring the world of dolphins. With new spy-cams disguised as fish, a turtle, and a dolphin, as well as a real dolphin fitted with a camera, we are taken into this fascinating undersea world. Mainly this follows both male and female pods of Bottlenose Dolphins, although in the first episode we see Spinner Dolphins, and in the second episode Orcas and even a Humpback Dolphin.

With scenes that have never be caught on camera before this makes something that is certainly memorable to watch. We can see how different pods interact, and as well as seeing superpods we actually get to see a legendary megapod. Seeing how courtship and mating rituals are played out we also see how young dolphins are taught to hunt. Different pods develop different skills for the area that they are in, all which are learned behaviour by that particular pod, and may not be used or known by any pods. It is this intelligence and willingness to adapt that make dolphins so successful, but there is more to life than eating and mating for dolphins. Like us these animals love to play and give each other things as signs of friendship. Watching male dolphins playing with a Puffer Fish we also see that these creatures aren't adverse to recreational drug use.

As well as dolphins we do see other sea creatures, after all in the sea a lot of creatures interact, following each other for prey, or seeking protection. One of the most funniest moments on this is in the first episode where a couple of turtles are mating, but the female starts to make advances towards the turtle spy-cam. Over the years there have been many programmes featuring dolphins, but I can't honestly think of anything quite as memorable as this.

After watching this series on TV, I knew who else would love it but wouldn't have had the chance to see it!
My Australian-dwelling daughter-in-law and grandaughter both LOVE dolphins and I knew this DVD would be very welcome in their household. I wasn't wrong...
