Trivia

During an April 2019 interview with Ari Shapiro on the National Public Radio program "All Things Considered," series producer Alastair Fothergill was asked if there was there one particular scene that he was especially proud of having captured, and his response was to describe the extremely difficult process of capturing footage of a Siberian tiger: "It's the first intimate images of these amazing cats in the wild. And to give you a sense of how difficult it was, over two winters, three cameramen were literally locked away inside wooden hides. They didn't come out for six weeks. Everything you need to do to survive they did inside this small box.... And they worked for two winters. They got one, single shot of a wild Siberian tiger. At the same time, we had about 40 motion control cameras - remote cameras that are set off by the moving animal. And again, the first winter, we got nothing, really. We got lynx going past, other animals of the forest. But over that period, we began to see the movements of the tigers - how they were moving in that area. And the second season, we got 36 precious, precious images. For me, it's a wonderfully emblematic sequence of a wonderfully rare, wild, iconic species of the boreal forest." See more »

Make our planet great again
9 April 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

As we are reminded by an African proverb quoted in Terre des hommes (Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, 1939), 'we do not inherit the land from our parents, we borrow it from our children'. However, ecology and respect for nature always rhyme with procrastination. Indeed, since Neil Armstrong stepped on the lunar floor, the human population has more than doubled, but 60% of wildlife populations have disappeared.

The series Our planet celebrates the naturals wonders that remain and invites us to be both contemplative and respectful. Thus, we cross every continent, we feel each season and we touch each of the 3 main elements (sea, air, earth). It's dazzlingly filmed. The voice of David Attenborough is warm and pleasant. The text is excellently written. What a delight!

Although it can be sufficient in itself, this superb documentary may be supplemented by An Inconvenient Truth (2006), Microcosmos: Le peuple de l'herbe (1996), Océans (2009), ...
