The Wonders of Nature
11 September 2009 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

David Attenborough's first truly brilliant wild life mini-series, focusing on animal behaviour, is filled with spectacular photography... from the tiniest of insects to the biggest of mammals.

Attenborough's laid-back didactic approach would become slightly more effective in later shows which concentrated on individual species, but the wealth of images and the well presented information alone is worth every single second of this first-class twelve-part documentary, which baffles and astonishes its viewers time and time again. Nature's diversity is simply overwhelming!
