Compared to some of the documentary DVDs I've seen, Wild South: Volume 2 was rather on the slow side... informative, yes, but still rather slow. There were several times I nearly drifted off to sleep, especially during "The First Born" section, where the monotone of narrator John Mann's voice was extremely slow and sleep inducing.
Also, why is it that documentaries like this focus mostly on birds? Any type of bird was fine, but the main focus definitely seems to be birds! Ok, there was still bits and pieces included about other types of animals too- seals, rats etc... but even during the sections that was supposed to be about them, there was still more footage about birds! Since NZ does have quite a lot of non-avian wildlife, it was rather disappointing not to see more of these as well... maybe they'll appear in further volumes.
The section I found the most interesting was definitely "The Mangroves", which focused on a large range of the smaller creatures plus the plant life, and of course... the birds... of the Mangrove Swamp up in Northland.
Overall, an informative documentary, but not the most enjoyable.

Product reviews for listing 2023: Jane and the Dragon - Knight Light -  Type of Show: Children's Animated Series

Product image for Jane and the Dragon - Knight LightTwelve year old Jane lives in a medieval castle filled with eccentric d endearing friends, including Dragon (a giant green dragon), Jester (the court jester), Pepper (the cook), Rake (the gardener) and Smithy (the blacksmith).

Together they have a series of adventures unlike any you can imagine. While Jane is studying to be a knight, she also has to look after clumsy Dragon, and stick up for him when things go wrong. It's a tough job, ... more...
