I've been watching this series too. The swarm of locusts was interesting considering it's in the bible and with recent events, I thought it was apt.

I think the BBC makes the best documentaries in the world. Each episode of Planet Earth II has amazing stories. i keep on rewatching them and everytime I see something new that I have missed before.

I watched it last night and the part that *could* cause me a nightmare was the bat getting the scorpion. Bleaurgh. They showed it from behind all hunkered down eating the scorp and it reminded me of those Harry Potter dementors lol. Was it in IR or something? It had the cloaked phantom look and so reminiscent of b&w movie vampires and Jack the Rippers.


Great show as ever. Never tire of seeing lizards doing the two-step. Whatever that shiny hairball was looked great too.

Imagine coming back as a bug in that environment? I was even wondering what it'd be like being one of the bats and having to go through all that stinging to eat something that probably tastes vile. Lot of Greek symbolism in there.

Lol i remember that episode of planet earth 2.

Poor things had to run for their lives and get chased by loads of snakes.

Think the same episode had penguins on a volcanic island and they had to wait till high tide to jump off to find food, then come back the same way but get hurt on rocks etc... Missed the last episode i'll need to catch up lol.

Nice post OP

I suppose spiders are scary to some and i guess most of us a phobia of some sort . For me its blue ringed octopus and saltwater crocodiles . The crocs are thousands o kilometers away but the occys are out there , lurking , waiting to bite the unwary . Now i have to rethink snakes .

Heres an article defending the snakes in that video.

Basically he says that those snakes are going to starve now because they didnt get the baby iguana.

Im sure the snakes would have found a less ambitious meal to enjoy having failed to catch an iquana too big to swallow.

I am loving this series, they are really excelling themselves, I've found myself yelling at the TV in ways I never have with a nature documentary. The snakes were mad freaky...filmed and edited to create wonderful drama and suspense, BUT for me, so far, the Ibex were astounding! The mad little things. Insane. I was watching them and just totally got, all of a sudden, why the pre-civilisation peoples worshipped them. They're awesome!



Long live Attenborough!

Yes anything Attenborough is good but the cameramen are the real stars in my opinion , still its not a documentary without his voice narrating . As for the long live thing i saw an interview with him for his 90th birthday and the interviewer said hopefullw we can do this again in 5 years and his reply was , hopefully , are you sick .

The whole kit and kaboodle, camera crews, the in-the-field ecologists and conservations who are protecting these fragile eco-systems and helping us to understand them, as well as documenting those most at risk. The work of the BBC Natural History Unit underpins and provides essential public dissemination for a whole network of academics and scientists whose work would otherwise be marginalised or unknown.

Hence long live Attenborough, there are few people with his power, influence and first-hand experience who are willing and able to talk about wide-spread, continuing environmental degredation, keeping the subject at the forefront of BBC programming, ensuring that we know enough to be able to care. The government certainly doesn't want to talk about it, and now with Brexit, there is going to be less support and definately less money for environmental and biodiversity projects and studies in the UK, as well as a more lax attitude towards abusers and polluters of the environment.

A series like this needs a lot of people: ten producers, 40 camera operators (six of them permanent, the others brought in for perhaps just one shoot), a production manager (who looks after the money) and a team of people to sort out the logistics.


I cant say i can argue with you . The link below opened my eyes a bit as to how much goes into it . It says 11 in the title but there is only 7 .
