A River somewhere (Series 1 & 2)

If you are as big a fan of fly fishing as me then you don’t want to miss out on this fantastic series out from ABC DVD! Starring Rob Sitch and Tom Gleisner, we go on an amazing voyage all over the world in search of that elusive bite that means we’re getting some dinner tonight. Take that one step further in their tradition of eating the catch cooked in the local way.

This series spanning both volumes 1 and 2 is simply stunning and being put together by the usual band of suspects (Sitch, Gleisner, Cilauro and Kennedy) is sure fire entertainment that the whole family will enjoy together. Don’t be put off by the fishing angle (get it? Angle? Fishing?), as there is a great deal of traveling by various modes of transport and things to see that get in the way of throwing anything into the water. The destinations are gorgeous and our traveling companions are simply brilliant.

The technical quality of the disc is good and no complaints, same for audio. The production was shot for television and has an aspect ratio of 4:3. The audio is crisp clear stereo. Series 1 was produced in 1997 and Series 2 was in 1998. Highly enjoyable, well put together and certainly up there with other fantastic travel/journey/fishing type docos.

Only regret is that we didn’t get to hear the CD soundtrack by itself as the review copies did not come with it.

Give yourself the time to experience A River Somewhere, you will not regret it.
