Life in Cold Blood: Attenborough- 02.05.08
As i’m sure most regular NOTCOT readers have noticed ~ my background and those of our few contributors is quite varied, but passion-filled! Justine and i grew up heavily inspired by both design and nature, and as a result i’m here doing NOTCOT, and she’s helping out when not busy finishing up her PhD in Animal Behavior and fencing… we grew up surrounded by all types of creatures, so it should be no surprise that we’re smitten with Life in Cold Blood, and i’m anxiously awaiting the DVDs… Here’s what she has to say about Attenborough’s latest:
Those of us lucky enough to be in the UK have caught our first look at the final installment in David Attenborough’s “Life” series. And this final series is a group particularly near and dear to my heart, the herps! “Life in Cold Blood” takes a look at the world’s diversity of reptiles and amphibians. The first episode: “The Cold-Blooded Truth” did not disappoint, packed full of gorgeous footage and remarkable creatures.
The making of (“Under the Skin”) was equally exciting, including glimpses of Attenborough in the early days of his career. The man is, without question, a legend. As a zoologist in training, I think I can honestly say, his documentaries have been an inspiration. And the producers of the series may just have outdone themselves again. You owe it to yourself to check out the BBC Life in Cold Blood site in its entirety of clips and goodies, but here are couple shots to whet your appetite after the jump!
DVD and Book are at the BBC Shop… which all Planet Earth lovers simply must have.
