Nothing you may write about Sir David Attenborough can do him full justice.
He is one of those people you automatically feel unqualified to make any sort of comment at all (much like Richard Feynman, but for different reasons).
That Sir David has become a household name and is universally loved would be stating the obvious.
Watching this documentary takes you back to times where programs were about contents, rather than graphics.
Sir David makes the explanations very personal, with that child-like wide-eyed luminosity in the way he seems to be discovering with you the very things he is explaining.
I will treasure his DVDs in the same way I did with the ones from Carl Sagan. They are an instant classic that will be remembered for a long time.
