The other personalized aspect is that the main presenters in the series are the two veteran underwater cameramen, Doug Allan and Didier Noirot. The usual format for series like these includes a 10-minute "making-of" at the end of each 50-minute episode. There's no need for that here because the makers of the shots are on camera almost as much as the whales, and their personal quest to get better acquainted with these marine mammals better is the main thread of the story. The result is more low-key and informal than the usual BBC Earth presentation. It's all shot in high-def (the blu-ray is 1080i), but you don't really notice that because the unexpected intimacy of relationships comes across more clearly than the visual spectacle. It's a different sort of series from BBC Earth, and i think a highly successful one.
Now they want to go whale watching. Awesome.
Recommended for the animal lover.
I would have given the Blu-Ray five stars, but I did not enjoy the choice in music nor the American narrator. I felt the narrations were overly dramatic, and unnecessarily sensationalized things.

Not much narration, but many visits to ocean experts on-site (boats; diving). Read more
Would have been five stars, but where the heck is Stephen Fry? It took me multiple searches to realize that there is a British version and that this is the "import." Boo.Published 20 months ago by Blair Saltel
