David Attenborough's Life Of Birds (DVD 2000)
Life of Birds is one of my favourites of Sir David's films which are are all spectacular and exciting. Now I am gradually replacing my collection of deteriorating video tapes by DVD's - they will give me a lifetime of pleasure.
David Attenborough's Life Of Birds
If there is something you want to know about birds, it is right here in The Life Of Birds. Sir David Attenborough is a very talented presenter and conservationist. BBC documentaries are unbeatable.
A Classic - just like it's narrator
A comprehensive series that is eminently watchable time and time again. If you enjoy nature series or birds or just curious about the world, this is a televisual treat. Is there any thing to dislike? Yes - there's not enough!
Everything about birds
Life of Birds is a very complete documentary covering all the aspects of life of birds: from some notes on evolution, feeding, breeding, to impacts of human life. It has very impressive images. I am really happy with this product
