Have you seen Chris Packham’s Secrets of Our Living Planet series? I have to confess to having seen only most of one episode of the three that have been broadcast. My eye didn’t travel further than the football that was on TV and that’s why I have missed them.
I caught most of last Sunday’s programme about grizzly bears, salmon and the forests of British Columbia and it was very good but I don’t know exactly how it ended as I was watching the start of Spain’s amazing performance against Italy. And, thinking back, his second programme clashed with England’s exit from Euro 2012 – I definitely should have learned about savannahs instead of watching England exit on penalties as usual – nothing learned there!
Still there is no excuse for this coming Sunday and wetlands.
Have you watched these programmes? What did you think of them?
I really did think that Sunday’s programme was a significant cut above the run of the mill wildlife programmes – and that isn’t just because Chris has written a very kind foreword for Fighting for Birds. I prefer to think that the fact that Chris Packham cares passionately about wildlife is the reason he rather liked my book.
