Wildest Places

 (31)
2019ALL
Isolated and completely surrounded by water, Australia is a land of contrasts. Parched desert and tropical rainforest, islands, reefs, and bushland are shaped by seasons of drought, flood, and fire. Through it all, this continent has produced the most extraordinary survivors. Some have bloomed in unhindered remoteness over millions of years. Others remain unchanged since long before the ice age.

    Australia was the last continent to form, the smallest of the seven. Though it is completely surrounded by water, the center is consumed by vast tracts of parched, infertile land. This is the lowest, flattest, and driest inhabited continent. Its extreme climate and isolation has shaped astounding evolutionary adaptations. This place has created its own rules of nature.

    The wetlands and rainforests of Australia are ecosystems that hold links to the continent's ancient past. These places are extremely diverse. Lush green ranges in remote southern isles allow life forms to flourish unhindered. Rainforests create prime real estate for a convergence of species, all battling for territory.

    The vegetated areas of the smallest continent are uniquely Australian. It's estimated almost a fifth of Australia is covered in dry forest. The dry forests, colloquially deemed "the bush", is concentrated mostly along the east coast, with small pockets in the southwest and northern extremities of the country. These are the kingdoms of the most common of Australian mammals, marsupials.

    As a freestanding continent, Australia is surrounded by two major oceans and five seas. There are 22,000 miles of coastline on the mainland alone. These are the magical boundaries where elements meet. The animals that thrive in the spaces between land and sea have weird and wonderful rituals to adjust and battle for supremacy when these strange worlds collide.

Great visuals
I've only watched season one so far, but I'll be diving into season two before long. Great cinematography, great locations, great animals, good narration. My only complaint is that the music was too loud in places. Episode three comes to mind - the music competed with the narration and distracted from an otherwise excellent program. Still, if you are a nature lover, this is for you.

Interesting for both kids and adults!
I love putting on a good nature documentary for my son. This one is enjoyable to watch and incredibly informative. My son is hopping around like a kangaroo. Highly recommend!

Great show ! Music not so much :(
The show itself is very good. I loved seeing all these interesting animals and plants. This is most likely the only way I ever get to see Australia.
The music on the other hand was too loud and annoying.
A show like this really doesn't need this type of music.

Great Southern Hemisphere documentary
Focusing on Australia, Pacific Islands north of Australia, and Antarctica. There's much to like here: plenty of great imaging, many unique species, and lots of narration. There's some "cutsie" here as well, unfortunately. Too much music could alternate between the "cutsie" and the overly dramatic.

BEAUTIFUL
Wonderful to see all the areas that most people will never visit or be able to visit to the extent we get to see in these episodes. So beautiful to see - even if they talk about evolution and a planet that is many millions of years old.
