Wonderful nature documentary. Beautifully photographed with some very curious and fascinating animals. Unfortunately it is over orchestrated. For example, showing Victoria Falls they violins go way over the top, why can't we just hear the majestic roar of the water tumbling over the edge? BBC does this in all their docs. Also the assumption that we came from apes just doesn't ring true that it's an absolute fact. It's an assumption that might have some truth to it but there certainly isn't enough proof to satisfy me.
It is unquestionably a beautifully filmed documentary - but I do have some questions about animals dying in the series - I suspect that some of the creatures were 'set up' to fail, as it were, to get a great story (namely the baby bat and the fish living in thermal waters) They could easily leave that out and still have more than enough interesting 'facts'.
i found this quite interesting despite the fact that the narrator takes an Evolutionist's point of view about everything in this show.

Before this dvd, I had heard of Africa's Great Rift Valley, but that was about it. This was fascinating; like a can't-put-it-down book, I had to watch every second. I now know all about the entire Great Rift, not just the Valley. BBC has almost outdone themselves ("almost" because it could only be better if Attenborough narrated).
I highly recommend it to anyone facinated by natural history!
YEAH! Good behavior of hippos is by far the best part!
