Impressive stuff from Nat Geo. However, these modern doco's all suffer from an over reactive sound track. Struggled to hear the narrative above the music. As much as I enjoy classical music, I'd say that the use of heavy arpeggios with the spoken word is a mistake. I'd like to meet with some of these produces who pound us with these over the top tracks. We're interested in the science people! Back in the 80s the BBC produced wonderful documentaries under the 'Horizon' title. Of course they still do. Back then the music was appropriate and 1st rate narrator Paul Vaughan was in a class of his own. Lets get back to the story and leave the music to the X Factor!
