German version has been massively cut!
14 August 2009 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I happened to be in Sweden at the time when the original BBC series was shown on TV there. Then I came back and some weeks later a German version was shown on ARTE - I watched it and was appalled by how massively the film material had been cut by German studios! They did not just made two parts out of three, no, they had truncated a great documentary series from 180 minutes to 90 minutes!

The whole story is flawed and so many great takes are missing.

I'm just so angry about this!

Especially, as this documentary series is really wonderful. I've never seen such recordings before. More than once you get the impression that a tiger is directly staring into your eyes.
