Just watched the latest David Attenborough documentary on BBC 1....... Superb. Some of the aerial shots were staggeringly beautiful....wild dogs hunting in the kalahari, and a Canadian wolf running down a caribou...... wonderful, and not a Titchmarsh in sight!

It's on again next Saturday BBC2 1830hrs....... and dont despair our colonial friends, It's a Discovery Channel co-production, so I assume you'll get it too at some point

Brilliant......There were some fantastic photography in the show, which was duly explained in a 'behind the scenes' skit towards the end of the prog. You can see where your licence fee is going, on that splendid new camera, but I think it is worth it. As soon as you here David's voice over on a programme, then you know you are in for a treat. The BBC does it best and this is well worth watching. I will be watching it again at the weekend with the kids, just so they can marvel at natures majesty (besides the big scary great white leaping ten feet out of the water with a seal in its jaws all in lovely slow motion).

My claim to fame is my brother in law sells the ultra high speed cameras used to film the shark attacks in this series.
Blue Peter are talking about doing a piece on the cameras in a couple of weeks - Blue Peter badge for him then !!!

Cheers
