Eye-opening well-rounded documentary with visuals of a quality BBC documentary
31 March 2019 | by nichtssagendSee all my reviews

This documentary is a real eye-opener for anyone who doesn't know much about Colombia. It covers natural attractions, fauna and flora, historic attractions, as well as the modern problems Colombia faces. The production values are outstanding and at the level of a top quality BBC documentary, with stunning landscape scenes, crisp close-up action shots of animals, and pleasant progressions between segments.

It reveals many surprising aspects of Colombia that a typical outsider would not know, such as the breathtaking landscapes, amazing diversity of wildlife, and spectacular natural attractions from glaciers to unique cloud forests to rich rain forests.

The balance of topics is spot on given the time available, and I think it is appropriate that the documentary does not shy away from briefly highlighting environmental problems - clearly with a message targeted at Colombians themselves. Reading between the lines, the documentary also entices international viewers to consider visiting Colombia, which it certainly did for me. However, given that intent, I wish some of the amazing places were called out a bit more obviously as to where they are located, but I get the feeling Colombia's tourism potential is largely untapped.

I watched this with English sub-titles, not knowing Spanish. The narrator's voice is excellent and a pleasure to listen to and his pronounciation so clear that you often inadvertently pick up Spanish words that sound similar to their English equivalent as you read the (well written) sub-titles. All up, a great watch even if you don't know Spanish and I'm kind of glad it's not dubbed.
