Journey of Life

BBC One's new nature series, Journey of Life started yesterday in the form of Seas of Life. With wonderful ambient soundtrack, special effects and good humour, Steve Leonard excellently narrated a convincing tale about the evolution of life on earth that began 3.8 billion years ago.

Using stock BBC footage from The Blue Planet and other sources (plus original footages), Seas of Life had Steve explores the first life on earth, microbes to giant whales and dolphins.

Most of these are textbooks stuff anyway that we learn when we are young, but with the wonderful production values that only the BBC could ever manage, it would only take a fool to want to miss this. Discovery Channel should take note.

Natures of Life continues every Thursday 9pm on BBC One.

It's refreshing to have something interesting to watch instead of the trash that pollutes the tv these days.

Will check it out next week if I can persuade my remote control to come out of hibernation. :)
