Africa - Eye to Eye with the Unknown product reviews

An amazing new perspective on the landscapes and creatures of Africa's wildest places.

Narrated by Sir David Attenborough, this is the world's wildest continent as you've never seen it before - an intense sensory adventure from the Atlas Mountains, through the Savannah lands to the Cape of Good Hope and from the Roof of Africa and the Kalahari to where the dark rainforests of the Congo meet the Atlantic Ocean. Each episode shifting the focus onto a different region as it contrasts the epic power of the landscape with the dramatic struggles of individual creatures living there.

From hidden jungles and ice-blue glaciers to erupting volcanoes and lakes of poison. Africa explores an astonishing array of previously un-filmed locations and discovers bizarre new creatures and behaviors - including some of the rarest fish in the world, exploding insects and lizards that hunt on the backs of lions. Each episode concludes with a captivating behind the scenes look at how this unique series is brought to life.

This landmark 6-part series utilises the latest filming technology to reveal the surprising environments, extraordinary creatures and other fascinating secrets of an amazing continent.

For anyone serious, or even curious, about learning more about this planet's varied and astounding life, before we kill it all, this is a DVD you really should watch. Without being preachy or chastising, it makes it clear that without some radical intervention our planet is on the verge of a massive extinction event, and places like those shown in this DVD are the seeds from which a new biosphere may emerge, if we don't take steps to prevent their destruction too.

As is to be expected from a BBC production, the cinematography is stunning, with shots being those I would have previously classified as "impossible to shoot without a wormhole camera" and yet, utilising some clever new technologies, and some good old fashion ingenuity, they managed to pull it off and make it look easy.

I was particularly pleased with the two extra bits on Disc 3 - The Future and Outs of Africa, the latter being outtakes and blooper reels from the filming. It really added an extra dimension and a more 'intimate' understanding of what goes on to film such amazing documentaries - the trials and tribulations, but also the laughs and celebrations too.

Overall, this was amazing to watch, and will be one I add to the collection for my children to watch as part of their ongoing education. It is my dearest wish that, by the time my youngest is old enough to take this on board and understand it, he may still have an opportunity to see at least some of it still thriving in the wild.
