A Wonderful World

Postby knightofalbion » Sun Dec 11, 2011 2:08 am

When it comes to natural history programmes nobody does it like the BBC! The latest offering from the BBC's Natural History Department is Frozen Planet - a staggeringly beautiful series on life in the Polar regions, a world that may soon be lost forever.
Expect it to network in Australia next year. For now, here is a taster - click on 'See all clips' - http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00mfl7n (The best bits are also on YouTube)

The series ended with this beautiful little video...

"And I say to myself, what a wonderful world"


The final shot, of the chimps interacting with David, a reminder, to my mind, of the oneness of all life.
All this talk of religion, but it's how you live your life that is the all-important thing.
If you set out each day to do all the goodness and kindness that you can, and to do no harm to man or beast, then you are walking the highest path.
And when your time is up, if you can leave the earth a better place than you found it, then yours will have been a life well lived.

David Attenborough is well known here in Australia for his wonderful commentary and annotations of this program series - the (Frozen Planet). I have been watching it on paid TV, a beautiful and wonderous journey as he takes us on his adventures. Also the series shows how the planet is suffering because of man's uncaring ways. Because of this, nature too is suffering and will only get worse until something gives?

Thank you knightofalbion
