    Description

    Just when you thought Attenborough couldn't surpass his work for the BBC you get this, made for Sky. When you think about it, 3D is a fantastic method of capturing wildlife and with the godfather of Natural History involved in the project then you just know you are onto a winner before you've even seen it.

    It doesn't disappoint.

    Which leaves me scratching my head. Maybe it's just me but why couldn't the BBC have done the project due to its long association with Attenborough? Why is it Sky pioneering it?

    The only reason I can think of is that the bigwigs at the BBC must have thought there wasn't a sufficient audience for it. But so many people have TVs capable of showing 3D these days then I don't think that argument carries weight. Maybe I'm missing something. But I can't think what. And if that were indeed true then why have Sky invested in it?

    Below is the official promotional blurb that has been cut and pasted to an inch of its life. I swear that the guy who writes this stuff is responsible of 99% of the content on the internet - he deserves a knighthood!


    Official Blurb

    David Attenborough embarks on an extraordinary journey to unravel one of nature s most gripping stories the evolution of flying animals. The power of flight is one of the greatest miracles of nature. Over one hundred billion creatures soar through the air today - from nectar-drinking hummingbirds, to armoured airborne beetles; from bats hunting in the black of night, to bizarre winged lizards.

    In Conquest of the Skies, David Attenborough travels back in time to unravel the astonishing 300-million-year story of how these animals first appeared, and then evolved into the huge variety of aeronauts that fill our skies today. Only now, using the latest scientific analysis, can he reveal the hidden mechanics behind their gravity-defying skills.

    High speed filming and stunning CGI bring the viewer closer than ever to this astounding aerial world. From the steaming rainforests of Borneo to the frozen fossil beds of China, the arid canyons of Spain to the cloud forests of Ecuador, this series spans the globe to explore the thrilling and surprising story of how the flying animals came to conquer the skies.
