Movie Reviews

Another gem from the BBC Natural History Unit

"If you've seen any of the other HD nature documentaries from BBC (Planet Earth, Life, Nature's Most Amazing Events, etc), you already know what to expect from this series. There is nothing groundbreaking here, just more of the amazing, high-quality, exciting nautre scenes that, frankly, only BBC knows how to deliver. While I wish David Attenborough had narrated the series, simply because no one else has that kind of gravitas, Hugh Quarshie's narration is decent and takes nothing away from the presentation.

East Africa had already been pretty well documented before this series. I have also traveled there. And still, in shot after shot, this series showed me things I had never before seen.

If you're a fan of high-quality, serious, beautiful nature documentaries, pick this up right away."
Beautiful video

"Another outstanding documentary with a combination of great photography and good information about the geological and ecological development of this area of Africa. Highly recommended."
