    Watched Great Barrier Reef the other day and was quite impressed, some brilliant shots of things looking very alien like and I'm going to try this Earthflight out now.

    Three-part series exploring Australia's Great Barrier Reef, one of the natural wonders of the world and the largest living structure on our planet.

    Monty Halls explores its full 2000-kilometre length, from the wild outer reefs of the Coral Sea to the tangled mangrove and steaming rainforest on the shoreline; from large mountainous islands to tiny coral cays barely above sea level; from the dark depths of the abyss beyond the reef to colourful coral gardens of the shallows.

    Take a breathtaking flight on the wings of birds across six continents and experience some of the world's greatest natural spectacles from a bird's-eye view.

    Fly across North America and become part of a flock of millions of snow geese as they discover what it's like to be on the hit-list of America's national bird: the bald eagle. Glide under San Francisco's Golden Gate Bridge with pelicans and experience the sensation of being on the back of a bird as you are flown through Monument Valley, the Grand Canyon and New York.

    In California, pelicans reveal devil rays that perform astonishing somersaults and find bizarre grunion fish that wriggle ashore to spawn. In Alaska, bald eagles swoop among brown bears fishing for salmon. On the Great Plains, cowbirds duck and dive under the feet of fighting bison. As we see the world through the eyes of birds, egrets show us the extraordinary habits of dolphins that strand themselves to feed; millions of shorebirds rendezvous with prehistoric creatures emerging from the sea; and gulls take us to Mono Lake, where they catch flies by chasing them with open mouths.




    Couldn't be bothered making two threads

    Earthflight was brilliant, they somehow put cameras on birds and eagles and shit! Some brilliant scenes and shots of the harsh conditions these birds face, recommend to anyone really.
