Quotes

David Attenborough: If we and the rest of the backboned animals were to disappear overnight, the rest of the world would get on pretty well. But if they were to disappear, the land's ecosystems would collapse. The soil would lose its fertility. Many of the plants would no longer be pollinated. Lots of animals, amphibians, reptiles, birds, mammals would have nothing to eat. And our fields and pastures would be covered with dung and carrion. These small creatures are within a few inches of our feet, wherever we go ...

Superb as you'd expect from Attenborough
20 November 2006 | by (somewhere sometime) – See all my reviews

The David Attenborough wildlife documentary series (Life on Earth, the Living Planet, Private life of plants, life of birds , etc etc etc) usually leave with no choice but to describe them in superlative. This one is no exception and I concur with another reviewer that it raises the bar in this documentary film genre.

Fascinating, sublime, amazing, awe-inspiring, epiphany-inducing ... one can go on.

Sir David's films are a must-have for every household and educational and civic institution.

If for nothing else, they should always be watched to remind us not to destroy or harm those amazing creations of beauty and perfection and complementarity, by acting more responsibly to our Earth.

Indeed to watch this or any of the Attenborough series and remember the mindless environmental devastation we are leaving in our train is heartbreaking.

Oil executives and warmongerers should be made to watch those series Daily and Nightly.

God has given a world that is beyond beautiful. I am grateful therefore for those who bring us such fine glimpses of it.
