BBC's Nature's Most Amazing Events
The most dramatic wildlife
spectacles on the planet...
Warner Home Video again presents a fantastic
up the mantle left by the stunning BBC series
Planet Earth, and offers a closer look at some of
the most fascinating and dramatic natural
happenings on the planet.
Narrated by David Attenborough, it digs in some
detail into the impact of certain events on nature,
and manages to hone in on small stories in the
midst of major happenings.
It's a breathtaking cocktail. What particularly lifts
Nature's Most Amazing Events too is the stunning
photography. Many will recall just how superb the
shots in Planet Earth were, but if anything,
Nature's Most Amazing Events tops it.
The cinematography here is world-class, and it
greatly enhances the series around it as a result.
That said, there's more than enough substance to
Nature's Most Amazing Events as it stands anyway.
Diligently made and researched, and presented in
an accessible, yet not condescending manner, it's
another major success for the BBC in this area,
and further cements why it's a world leader where
natural-history documentaries are concerned.
Credit must go too for the decision to include
the making-of material.
Back when the BBC broadcast The Blue Planet, this
material was often just as interesting as the main
feature itself, and the same is true here.
It's a genuinely fascinating insight into the production
of such an ambitious, and unmissable, series.
The score was composed by Barnaby Taylor and
Ben Salisbury, orchestrated and conducted by
William Goodchild and performed by the
BBC Concert Orchestra.
