Quotes

David Attenborough - Presenter: At a time when it's possible for thirty people to stand on the top of Everest in one day, Antarctica still remains a remote, lonely and desolate continent. A place where it's possible to see the splendours and immensities of the natural world at its most dramatic and, what's more, to witness them almost exactly as they were, long, long before human beings ever arrived on the surface of this planet. Long may it remain so.

Superb
12 October 2007 | by paint9698See all my reviews

Simply the best nature documentary I have ever seen. The cinematography and narration are beyond peer. The film (series) delves into the breeding cycles and lifestyles of animals ranging from various types of penguins (Emperor, Adelie, Chinstrap, Macaroni, Gentoo) seals (Crabeater, Weddell, Antarctic Fur Seals, Elephant and of course the deadly Leopard) birds (Cormorants, Snow Petrels, Antarctic Terns, Albatross, skuas) to minuscule micro biotic life in the oceans depths. So comprehensive. You feel as if, you are actually there witnessing it all. And as a result it is profoundly emotional and at times overwhelming. A very factual, honest and very painstaking account of life in Antarctica. A must see for nature lovers and anyone really who has any curiosity. Wish this had have been shown in the cinema. Vastly superior to 'Deep Blue'and 'White Planet' Long live David Attenborough and the BBC.
