David Attenborough's Natural Curiosities: Series 1 product reviews

David Attenborough has spent a lifetime documenting the natural world. He's met a great number of nature's most extraordinary creatures yet there are certain stories of bewildering animals that continue to intrigue him - from the peculiar patterns of a zebra's stripes to the evolutionary quirk of the egg-laying platypus.

Each episode explores the stories behind two natural curiosities, linked together by a common theme. Filmed on location in the UK, David's gift for storytelling combined with wonderful images of the animal subjects creates a television series unlike any other he has made before.

Sir David Attenborough certainly has a very reassuring and comforting tone of voice, that makes his narratives ever so interesting. Natural Curiosities is a step up from the "Life of..." titles that Attenborough has done in the past. Instead of jumping from one animal to the next, constantly switching and only talking about one or two aspects about the animals in questions, Attenborough has slowed it down, taking the time to dig deeper and give a history of certain animals.

This series focuses on two animals in each episode; the giraffe & chameleon, the platypus & the toad, the elephant & naked mole rat, the narwhal & snail/nautilus, and the zebra & the butterfly. With a full 30 minute episode, you get 15 minutes of each animals scientific history; when it was discovered, who did any significant research on it, as well as the usual interesting facts on what the animal is.

While great to get a deeper insight into the animals, this is a much slower paced series, and doesn't quite have all of the action that you may be used to. Still a beautifully shot series, with high definition photography and effects, as well as a plethora of information to keep your mind occupied.
