The professionalism of everyone involved in this glorious production is evident in every frame of what is seen and every second of what is heard. Most Hollywood blockbusters would struggle to compete with the cinematography on show here. Shot after shot seem almost impossible yet impossibly beautiful.
Few things fill a viewer with simple awe but the first episode about islands does it and then some.
The fact that it is all so enjoyable just adds to the experience. David Attenborough's narration is, as usual, superb.
Whatever the cost it was worth it. The BBC has another hit.
