A highly enjoyable documentary for the casual viewer
It is really hard to suggest that somebody who is just looking for entertainment see a documentary, but this would be worth looking at. It's not to be viewed in one sitting, it is in several parts, but David Attenborough helps to make the whole trip worth while. The subject is very skillfully played out in a variety of settings and subjects with the occasional special effect.
