Marshall Willenholly: Yeah, I'm going to have to agree that they're cheating. Using GCI and other camera tricks pretty much takes all of the "natural" out of nature. Sure it looks cool, but I'd rather have a realistic movie than something imagined by a guy with a computer. I could watch "Shreck" if I wanted to see fake computer stuff.

Ant: I love David Attenborough. WTF was up with Discovery replacing his voice overs with Sigourney (OK, but not as good as Attenborough) Weaver and Oprah (Are you farking kidding me?) Winfrey?

Winfrey?WHAT? This is the first I've heard of such nonsense. Sir David is THE voice of nature shows (now that Lorne Green is gone back to nature himself).
h2oincfs: If you're shooting it in a studio, using a blue screen, under extremely controlled conditions...it's not nature.
StokeyBob: Sad to see it go by so fast.Sad that it goes by so fast at all.
Smagma: It was one shot.. maybe 20sec long. They weren't cutting corners.. they were going above and beyond to get it all into the one shot. Nothing was CGI.. they just composited real plant life into the real nature imagery. If they hadn't.. it would all look like one big blur. They aren't magical and can't stop nature from blowing wind, they can't stop the sun from going down every night, or the weather from ruining every shot. It had to be done partly in the studio to get the remarkable imagery they were looking for.
