Undiscovered gems!, 19 Oct. 2009
In spite of being familiar with David Attenborough's work for more years than I care to remember, the 'Paradise' DVD has one off episodes that delight, inform and leave you wanting more. Ever wanted to know why Easter Island is deserted? Follow the rise and fall of a civilisation that left behind the well-known stone figures, the story sparking off from the purchase of a little figurine bought on a whim('The Lost Gods of Easter Island'). Natural history meets personal history in 'The Amber Time Machine' and, of particular interest to me as a musician, 'The Song of the Earth' - just why DO humans sing??? Altogether, a DVD to go back to watch again and again and again.......
