Quotes

Himself - Host: Ever since we arrived on this planet as a species, we've cut them down, dug them up, burnt them and poisoned them. Today we're doing so on a greater scale than ever... We destroy plants at our peril. Neither we nor any other animal can survive without them. The time has now come for us to cherish our green inheritance, not to pillage it - for without it, we will surely perish.

Another excellent documentary hosted by David Attenborough
7 March 2003 | by (Northern California) – See all my reviews

Who could imagine documentaries could be so entertaining? I rented this one from a public library (US) and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was in five parts on VHS. There is not one scene that is not on location in some exotic site. It is a thoroughly fascinating and educational experience.
