..a mission to get more people to watch this truly STUNNING video! It contains music from Sigor Ros that was used in the highly successful BBC series called Planet Earth. Here you get the best of both worlds. By the way, it's not something I've created, I'm far too dumb for that. God, how I LOVE animals! Especially elephants, Emperor penguins, erm, what else? Well, you'll just have to watch below! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EG-lQ-BQdrs&feature=related Seriously though, it's quite moving actually as many of these animals are endangered.

I think it is a very well made video. I think they were about to capture a very nice bit of the animal world. I think the message does not really stand out that much though. I am wondering are they asking us to protect these animals, or is it an introduction to all this.

Well, the series the clips were taken from was called Planet Earth and each week it concentrated on certain elements..like hot, cold, temperate..etc. Then it would show animals that were adapted to their environments and how they survived (or not, as the case may be). The series was groundbreaking in the way it was filmed. If you notice, there are many aerial shots, something that hadn't been done on that scale before. I know that Planet Earth is now a series on DVD and Blu-Ray and if you can get it where you are, you must as the video I showed you is just a snippet of what it's all about. As for Sigor Ros, a lot of their music was featured on Planet Earth and added to the atmosphere, plus Sir David Attenborough's narration, of course. The series made us all realise how beautiful our planet is, that was the main message BUT it did show how vulnerable it is too, as habitat loss and the melting of the ice caps is a major concern now. There are now about 3,000 tigers left in the wild due to poaching and habitat loss. Not all that long ago there were over 100,000 which gives you an idea of how badly Man treats animals he's supposed to share with the world. Nothing gets in the way of progress does it my friend?
