Close but it has a lot to live up to, 31 December 2013
5/10

Alice Roberts is a good choice for a TV natural history presenter but she doesn't quite save this program.

For me there is too much repetition of the animations. There is also no overall progression or narration to the show and the series doesn't quite get anywhere.

To sum up why this isn't that great.... too many animation repetitions, no substantial questions that lead to roundly answered off answers using overlay shots, animations and narrated explanations. Also too many nice fly-by shots of Roberts on a rock, Roberts on an icy rock, Roberts on another rock in the desert.

I like that they tried - the program makers just need to try harder and learn from great documentaries (Planet Dinosaur or what she did in the Origins of Us).
