| One of the best documentaries ever filmed
This is without doubt one of the finest documentaries ever filmed. Through its 12 episodes, a person couldn't possibly think of natural history in the same way again. Sir David Attenborough explains complex issues such as geology and biology so that everyone can easily understand. In fact, this series is easily on the same plane as "Cosmos" by Carl Sagan. The cinematography is beyond belief. Highly, highly recommended.
