Quotes

David Attenborough: Birds were flying from continent to continent long before we were. They reached the coldest place on Earth, Antarctica, long before we did. They can survive in the hottest of deserts. Some can remain on the wing for years at a time. They can girdle the globe. Now, we have taken over the earth and the sea and the sky, but with skill and care and knowledge, we can ensure that there is still a place on Earth for birds - in all their beauty and variety... if we want to... and surely, we should.

A highly enjoyable documentary for the casual viewer
12 December 2002 | by (Northern California) – See all my reviews

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.

In the US, it might be found at your local library which is where I found it.
