Strange nature program with memorable theme
25 January 2014 | by (Le Pecq, France) – See all my reviews

During school holidays in the UK of the early seventies, BBC and ITV broadcast lots of kids programs on weekday mornings (if you happened to be living in the rain-soaked North of England this was very welcome, believe me). One of those programs was Untamed World. It stood out from the rest with its slightly strange resolution, its vivid colours (though I'm pretty sure we only had a black and white TV) and unusual animated graphics. It had a very catchy theme tune which was impossible to forget.

Even at the time, Untamed World seemed primitive and certainly there were better nature documentaries, like 'Survival' for example. It was, however, aimed specifically at children and we were kids hungry for TV. It was one of those programs which exercised a strange kind of magic that subsequently fuelled many intriguing reminiscences. The baritone narration was very authoritative and conveyed a sense of awe and mystery; it gave the impression that the images we were watching were of animals, places and peoples that were in the process of being lost forever.
