    Thats gotta be the best trailer… ever

    Simply put – nobody does it better than the BBC. This series will blow your mind. I just hope they keep the John Hurt narration for the North American viewers. For some bizaare reason Oprah narrated the Life series in the USA as opposed to David Attenborough over here (basically the definitive voice of Nature as confirmed by my Canadian fiance).

    unreal

    It certainly looks great, but they should call it “Men planet”, because only a few women appear in the trailer. There we go again, judging men´s activities as amazing and brave and keeping half of the world`s inhabitants in the shadows… sorry but I can`t feel indiferent about this kind of things.

      good point. i have a hard time watching trailers/documentaries like this and just getting lost in the awe… i can’t help but wonder about the complicated nature of (privileged, most likely potentially former colonizers) outsiders making these kinds of documentaries, regardless of how stunning some of the images are and impressive the technical side of getting those images is…

    so good. this more just reminds me of how effective music can be in making you feel something powerful. but yeahhh for indigenous populations

  • Kevin Courtney Blythe-Wood

  • tom mcdonnell
