“Frozen Planet” is another documentary masterpiece that was created by BBC and it was masterfully narrated by David Attenborough. BBC has created and produced other well-done documentaries such as “Blue Planet” and “Planet Earth,” but none have focused solely on the Arctic and
Everything about this documentary was perfect. I must admit that I have never been so excited to watch a documentary until now. BBC has a good reputation for producing great documentaries, but they outdid themselves again with “Frozen Planet.” Everything from the narration by David Attenborough to the music to the pacing and the actual footage was perfectly executed. David is a pro at narrating pretty much anything and he always brings a certain sophistication and elegance to the projects he chooses to be involved with. Also, the music added a lot of emotion to the scenes and was always a perfect fit for this documentary. The music also helped with the pacing of the documentary and made the transitions go a lot more smoothly.
The actual footage for the documentary was always exciting and unlike anything I have ever seen before. They did a good job of showcasing nature in its raw form. My favorite scenes always involved the penguins and they were properly represented in the documentary. Besides all the cool camera shots and interesting footage, I learned a lot more about life in the Arctic and
I highly recommend checking out “Frozen Planet,” whether you are a fan of documentaries or not. I loved everything about this documentary and would watch it again in a heartbeat. It would also be perfect for high school biology classes, but might be a bit too much for younger audiences. For those reasons, I am giving “Frozen Planet” an “A+.”
