is part of the majestic BBC Wildlife series (we recently reviewed Tiger in the
same series). This time we are lucky enough to get up close and personal with
the most powerful bird on the planet, the eagle.
comprehensive look at these birds, we follow the habits, hunting, breeding and
general lifestyle of a number of different breeds from all corners of the
globe, including Australia. What really amazed me during this all too short
doco (50 minutes) was the great variety of places eagles nested and what they
would hunt for food. Imagine if you will an eagle taking down a kangaroo for
food, the power of these creatures is simply amazing.
Tiger, Eagle is narrated by David Attenborough who gives us a brief appearance
at the start of the feature and then does the voice over throughout. The audio
on this presentation is stunning being mixed in Dolby 2.0. Visually this
is must watch viewing as well with the exception of a couple of little faults
that really do nothing to hurt the viewing of Eagle.
If we were
really to complain about anything it would be that Eagle only runs for 50
minutes and is so engrossing you will wish there was more.
There are no
extras on this disc.
for anyone interested in a indepth look at this great species of bird.
