as some else said, excellent but.
28 August 2013 | by (Argentina) – See all my reviews

Beautiful shots, updated and unbiased information, never seen footage, charismatic presentation, BUT Iain Stewart keeps constantly and neurotically affirming the greatness of human race, the control we have about everything, the great hopes for the future of our civilization while any clever observer could deduce exactly the opposite from the info given. The ending frames showing the Svalbard Global Seed Vault turns somehow creepy to me, God knows what macabre faces are behind that project... I would have preferred he mentioned the Millennium Seed Bank Project of Kew. The documentary should be called "How we unmade the earth"
