I’ve never been a big fan of the saying "words can’t describe it," but this new program on Discovery HD Theater is just about as close as I’ve ever seen.
Actually, while words might describe, this presentation is so visual that that’s how it ought to be experienced. So check it out, and be sure and watch both the clip and the trailer for the series. But just take my word for it that you’ll want to see every episode. I’ve seen three so far, and there hasn’t been a dull second.
I think it’s the greatest natural footage that’s ever been created. That’s in part due to the amazing HD camera technology they’re using. They can be more than a mile away from the action and render an HD image that puts you right in the scene. This also makes for predator/prey sequences unlike anything I’ve ever seen. They alternate between very wide angle views, so you can see how a pack of wolves or wild dogs approach a kill tactically (f’ing amazing), and then see the very close in action. It’s really a wonder.
Bonus: So far, almost no enviro-nut hand wringing and lamenting.
