Customer Review

on 16 September 2009
This is a timely and quick release for Joanna Lumley's trip to Scandinavia in search of the Aurora Borealis. This was original shown on BBC HD and clearly clever photographic techniques were used to capture the beauty of the phenomenon. Living in the North of Scotland I sometimes get to see the lights, and although they are always awe-inspiring they were never like this. But although seeing the lights is the main focus of the show this is also a pleasant travelogue.

With all the good press Joanna has received recently, it is easy to warm to her personality and technique, which is to gush enthusiastically about everything and everybody. Often while watching these type of programs I find myself looking out for the little moments that get past the editing in which the local folk look slightly less enthused than they should be at being paraded before the cameras. There's none of that here. The people seem pleased to talk, and it's clear that everyone finds her pleasant and genuine.

There's little here that hasn't been covered before in snow-based travel shows: reindeers, people wearing reindeers, fish... but the journey is a diverting one and when she finally gets to see the lights, it's a journey worth taking.
