Trivia

During filming on Zavodovski Island in South Sandwich, one of the camera was doused during a storm and it would take 7 days by boat to have it replaced. The crew had to warm it up by using heat packs, sleeping with it and even above the stove to dry it. See more »

Astounding
6 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

The professionalism of everyone involved in this glorious production is evident in every frame of what is seen and every second of what is heard. Most Hollywood blockbusters would struggle to compete with the cinematography on show here. Shot after shot seem almost impossible yet impossibly beautiful.

Few things fill a viewer with simple awe but the first episode about islands does it and then some.

The fact that it is all so enjoyable just adds to the experience. David Attenborough's narration is, as usual, superb.

Whatever the cost it was worth it. The BBC has another hit.
