Gordon Buchanan can do no wrong in my house - he could literally come in through the window and try to gaffa tape a camera to my pets and I'd let him. What makes this particular nature doc gimmick surprisingly effective (at least compared to that one where they have like... a plastic penguin with a fake camera in it) is that there's quite a strong emphasis on the specific engineering elements which is fascinating and with each segment there is a clear objective that they're trying to achieve and in many cases the observations they make as a result are genuinely new to science.

Seeing scientists and specialists witness behaviour they've never before seen is rather touching and some of the POV footage - particularly from the manta rays - is legitimately stunning. That, combined with the smart focus and the aforementioned magical Buchanan makes it quite a special documentary series and certainly worth a gander. The only bugbear I have is a structural one - a need to constantly summarise, and re-cap which is more a "requirement" of the format than anything particularly egregious on this specific series' part.
