Customer Review

VINE VOICEon 30 January 2006
The final two pages in Richard Dawkins' brilliant The Ancestor's Tale talk about the sheer wonder when contemplating the solutions which organisms have found to cope with their elemental need for life, and the way in which they have adapted to survive, to endure and to thrive over billions of years. These 24 dvds, commented with inimitable panache by one of our great national icons, show you the result, in fascinating and dare I say loving detail.
I can hardly think of a better pick-me-up for when you're feeling down; I can hardly imagine a better case for environmental concern and protection, and I can hardly contemplate how these series could have been made better. It is simply thrilling to listen to the high-quality commentary while witnessing (in ever-improving quality as technology develops through the making of the different series) the sheer beauty of nature - red in tooth and claw perhaps, but also vibrant, creative, colourful and humbling.
The outlay may be over £100 but that works out at £4 per dvd - quite excellent value for hours of enjoyment and fascination for you and your family (my small kids, who never had the chance to see these series on TV, are fascinated and intrigued). Buy it!
