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 »

Absolutely beautiful
5 April 2019 | by regusmaximusSee all my reviews

Upon viewing the premier yesterday evening, being only the first episode, what I appreciated the most was the quality of the footage. It really brought the show to life, almost feeling like I was really there in various environments around the planet. Everything appeared so beautiful and natural, but with nature there were obviously sad moments too.

The first episode felt like an introduction to the rest of the series and I am very much looking forward to watching the remaining episodes, once they become available on Netflix later today, where I expect the true threats to the various fragile environments which form our planet will be explained.

Before the premier we were treated to clips of the crews filming at various locations, from wading waste deep through mosquito infested swaps in a rainforest to living in huts for weeks to try and capture a glimpse of a Siberian tiger. The harsh environments they endure for weeks or months at a time, sometimes to obtain footage lasting just a few seconds, or none at all, is inspiring in itself.

Sir David is a true inspiration for past, present and future generations. They way he construes information to the viewers is warm and simple, yet all the messages he wants to deliver are received very well.
