Breaths Life into YELLOWSTONE! Great Narration by Colin Firth
20 October 2013 | by KissEnglishPastoSee all my reviews

............................................................from Pasto,Colombia...Via: L.A. CA., CALI, COLOMBIA and ORLANDO, FL

This documentary worked a spell on me and made two and a half hours go by in a brilliant flash of glorious natural splendor! The BBC did an incredible job at filming and presenting the seasonal wonders and intricacies of what is, perhaps, the most beautiful, awe-inspiring national park on earth.

The BBC really managed to breath life into YELLOWSTONE, bestowing it with a cyclical life all its own! The narration, by British actor Colin Firth, both in delivery and content, is heartfelt, crisp and superb. The cinematography is nothing short of breathtaking, absolutely jaw-dropping, or any other accolade you prefer to use, with a truly remarkable color palate...and that was viewing an up-converted, standard DVD, not the Blu-Ray version! If you have a Blu-Ray option, you MUST be sure to use it.

Towards the end of the Documentary, Firth explains, step by step, how the reintroduction of wolves into the Yellowstone ecosystem has restored the park to an ecological balance reminiscent of the early 20th century. Thusly offering a crucial real-life example of just how fragile an ecosystem can be when it is tampered with by man! YELLOWSTONE is one of the most dazzling, enthralling and interesting Nature documentaries I have ever seen in my entire life! Rest assured it will be added to my DVD collection. If you are a Nature lover, this is a world-class must see! 10 Autumn leaves, multi-hued, Stars!.....ENJOY/DISFRUTELA!

Any comments, questions or observations, in English or Español, are most welcome!
