I have two thoughts about this:

1. I was half expecting it to have a jarring segue into Attenborough telling his infamous worm story.  gulp

2. The videography was stunning and Attenborough is awesome. However, this would have been so much better with Louis Armstrong’s vocals.  cool smile

Beautiful! I wonder if this was in Darwin’s mind when he wrote “the Origin of the Species”?

Loved watching this. I also wanted to hear Louis Armstrong’s voice—and I prefer Satchmo’s ending (“Oh, Yeah”). Sparked my curiosity, and a Google search led to Wikipedia, and then this article about the program that this was from:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-16118157

I don’t watch TV, except for DVDs of Doctor Who from the library (which means well after the current season is over), so I miss this kind of stuff—unless I happen across a posting like this.  Glad you shared. 

Funny how even the Brits, who really seem to get secularism and atheism better than Americans, still do “Christmas” specials. Even more funny how Christmas “sells”—which drives some more genuine Christians nuts, especially since most succumb to the commercial frenzy without even realizing how their “religion” has been hijacked. 

Do you suppose we’ll ever see a “wonderful world” message being widely shared free from “holiday” connections?

Well, seeing as how the Christians hijacked a Pagan holiday in the first place, I don’t see that they have anything to complain about…....

Subject: This bud’s for you!!....Beautiful!

click on the link below…..the flower videos are out of this world.  The photographer must see beauty in everything.  When the first video is done there are 2 more at the last screen.  They are worth while watching.

EACH FLOWER IS FILMED FOR TWO DAYS AND PHOTOS ARE COLLATED WITHIN 7 MINUTES TO GET THIS EFFECT

Makes you want to start on this years garden, doesnt it?????

Ah come on,
I think half the fun of it was that it was coming from Attenborough,
and you know I’ll bet many of us were hearing Louis doing background vocal wink

Yes, it is. Earth is beautiful full of excitement, happiness. In fact, you should be thankful if you have problems or you come across difficulties in life because this will only mean that you have noticed and make an important role in the world.
