Animal life

Made by the BBC Earth using footage from the nature series Planet Earth II, this film focuses on a single day across the continents as we drop in on the natural world.

Narrated by Robert Redford we get to see that famous sequence of writhing snakes chasing newborn iguanas on the beaches of the Galapagos Islands, the baby iguanas get away just in time. There are a family of sperm whales giving birth and feeding milk to its young, the milk has to have the consistency of cottage cheese.

We have penguins taking a dangerous trek in order to feed its family and hoping to find the right nest. Two giraffes fight for love but the older one has enough knowledge to know when to duck and return with a knockout blow. Zebras cross crocodile infested rivers and a bear trying to scratch that itch.

The photography is wonderful but it is a case of we have seen it all before if you have watched the television shows.

Exceptional Film

Leisurely paced BBC nature documentary, narrated by Robert Redford, which travels across the globe, in one day, to discover some wondrous goings on in the animal kingdom. I've seen many nature films but this one had numerous scenes that I had never witnessed before, like a sloth crossing a river trying to answer the call of a potential mate.

Often shot in close-ups, slo-mo, or time lapse photography the movie offers some truly amazing insight into wildlife and our natural habitat. There is one sequence involving snakes lying in wait to attack young iguanas as they emerge from their nesting place that may be too much for young children, but otherwise I would think the entire family could enjoy and learn from this documentary.

Overall, I found this film to be exceptional.

Thank all that's holy for the BBC

This is why I pay a TV licence. Beautifully filmed and wonderfully edited.
