I'm usually not a big fan of documentaries, but "South Pacific BBC" is
an exception. This 6-part BBC mini-series of the South Pacific shows
not only clichéd postcard-style images, but also the south pacific's
diverse wildlife, people, history and its condition today.
Interesting stories alternate with amazing images from the air as well as in the water. At the end of every Episode, the "South Pacific Diaries" show the difficulties the team experienced while filming and the high-tech material they used.
As the BBC is not only ad-driven, they were able to invest a huge amount of money, which pays off: top-notch direction, sound, narrating and image quality (check the blu-ray!). I see no big flaws, only the wildlife parts are in a few cases a bit boring.
Another excellent BBC wildlife documentary featuring breathtaking
high-definition photography and a detailed overview on diverse aspects
related to earth's biggest ocean such as insular evolution and
While the didactic approach of Attenborough's "Life"-series is still unsurpassed in its clarity and empathy, there's more than enough informative material gathered to fill six joyous hours.
Be prepared to be stunned by the brilliant use of slow motion.
A technical triumph in all departments!
