Both awe-inspiring & relaxing to watch documentary on various observations made via satellites. The theme of the series is to showcase interesting places around the Earth, focusing on animals & various environments, while highlighting at times the impact humans can have on this fragile balance.
Personally I learned quite a few things each episode, thanks to the dynamic structure of the series - each episode showed multiple places around the world. That structure also helps to keep episode highly entertaining (as opposed to some other documentaries which focus on a certain theme for too long and tend to be a bit boring).
The narration is spot-on, it's not intrusive at all and let's you enjoy the imagery. After watching recently Chiwetel's directorial debut in "The boy who harnessed the wind" I developed great admiration for him, so I am glad he took part of this project.
My personal favorite thing about the series is the music & sound editing. They're both simply outstanding. As with the narration and cinematography, the music supplement the whole idea of the series with a more relaxing tone but yet very noticeable impact.
Looking forward to more projects from the same team who produced the series. They did an amazing job.
