I always dreamt of flowers and plants. Always admired their evolutionary tricks that got them to spread across the globe. I still daydream of Darwin collecting rare species and cataloguing. I should have become a botanist. oh well... (the amazing cinematography still holds up 22 YEARS later). An achievement. This was before drones, HD, 4K, GoPros and the lot. Write that down!
With a lot of patience and time we get some of the best pictures of plants and trees that have ever been shown to the public in a mainstream nature documentary program. It is especially interesting to see how the wild trees and flowers grow (in fast-forward time) as this is practically impossible to see for the human eye in normal time. Attenbourgh's presence makes this a classic.
