A sensational watch

Author: johnconn-1 from United Kingdom

To begin, I would like to state that I am a huge fan of the BBC Nature documentaries. Through huge funding, a dedicated team and with unquestionably the greatest narrator there ever has been, David Attenborough, they never fail to disappoint.

The series looks at how seasonal changes powered by the sun cause shifting weather patterns and ocean currents, which in turn create the conditions for some of the planet's most spectacular wildlife events. Each episode focuses on the challenges and opportunities these changes present to a few key species.

I will not go into detail about each episode as it truly is something which must be watched to appreciate fully, but let me say this; I believe that each episode of Nature's Great Events can stand up to even the best of the Planet Earth series.

The harrowing scenes of the Ndutu pride of lions is perhaps the most powerful wildlife I have ever witnessed.

This series is phenomenal. I hear people complaining that it is only 6 episodes long but so be it. A documentary that will stand the test of time, superb and the easiest 10/10 I will ever give.

Excellent if only it were more than 6 episodes.

This is great and quite varied in what it covers. Granted I've only seen 4 of the 6 so far, but from what I've seen so far it is superb. Interested in this type of nature documentaries then you are in luck. Fantastic in all respects. I can't recommend this more. Very interesting & fun to watch. Bears & salmon are one episode. Polar Bears and the cool looking Narwhal's whales are great too. Well that's it watch it to be entertained and to learn some stuff too. Oh yeah they do some Cool episode w/Lions too. Also they follow a little bit of cheetah's. Got to have 10 sentences and I'm looking forward to the Okovongo Delta episode.

Attenborough Strikes Gold-Again

Author: Dylan-Potter

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

Coming from the same year as other BBC documentary classics Yellowstone, South Pacific and Life, how did this one be the best out of all of them? The things caught on film here are absolutely incredible. Incredible wildlife migrations, incredible moments of dolphins, sharks and gannets hunting sardines and whales and sea lions feast on krill, only for Killer whales to come for the sea lions. From the thrilling polar beginning to the salmon of Alaska as they risk life and fin to escape grizzly bears to the epic migration of wildebeest, zebra and antelope as they avoid lions and crocodiles to the sardine feast of South Africa, to the flooding of the Okavango Delta, to the endings where krill in Alaska, the tiniest animal imaginable causes the biggest feast of the year. These are six superb episodes, with David Attenborough's natural narration, it is great that unlike with too many other documentaries the Discovery Channel replace a perfectly fine BBC narration. I also love how like with all the other Attenborough programs, it is easy to understand for people who don't know science like me, yet this is easy to understand.
