BBC Nature shows so beautiful they will make you cry
All narrated by Sir David Attenborough save one. USA, no disrespect to Alec Baldwin or Morgan Freeman, but you get short changed when you don't get this man's narration on your docs. Accept no less. (Most are available free on YouTube, but buy the BluRay if you can.) I've just seen the trailer for "Planet Earth II" and oh my GOD....
- •Life in the Undergrowth (2005)Not for the creepy-crawly adverse. But this shows drama equivalent to the African savannah right at your feet.
- •The Blue Planet (2001)70% of Earth is water. Explore it in depth (no pun intended).
- •The Private Life of Plants (1995)Leave it to Sir David A. to make plants fascinating.
- •Planet Earth (2006)BBC Nature's flagship series, getting a sequel this year. This is nature the way it was meant to be seen.
- •Life of BirdsI can't believe this one is almost twenty years old. This remains my favorite wildlife series, but mostly because I'm a sucker for birds.
- •Walking With Dinosaurs (1999)Unless you have small children, please avoid the recent movie with the same title and (mostly) style which makes my brain hurt. Narrated impeccably by actor and director Kenneth Brannagh (or Avery Brooks in the American version).
