Narrated by David Attenborough, this new series is a visual feast and a must for fans of Planet Earth.
The BBC can be relied upon to regularly deliver enjoyable nature documentaries, so why is this one particularly worthy of your attention? The first reason is David Attenborough, whose narration – as it has done so many times before – brings a unique warmth and generosity of spirit, while never veering over into sentimentality. The second is the photography, which is at times staggering. Those who were entranced by the visuals in Planet Earth will find many new moments to love here.
The series comprises six episodes chronicling some of the planet’s most spectacular natural events, and shows how these phenomena can transform entire landscapes, drawing in millions of animals and determining their fate. The events featured are the Pacific salmon run, the greening of the Serengeti, the plankton bloom in the Pacific Northwest, the spring thaw in the Arctic, the flooding of the Okavango Delta and the South Atlantic sardine run. Nature’s Great Events does for nature what Grand Designs does for buildings and Nigella Lawson does for food.
