The graphical contents and the narrative scripts are excellent.

One negative detail: the female voice was murmuring at low pitch (frequency) while is lovely (!) but not suitable for this documentary movie. The excellent background audio at time with thundering sounds and effects make the reading voice intelligible. My TV has a built-in audio equalizer. After setting the treble to the highest level and the bass to the lowest level, I can hear the narrative voice a bit clearer. Of course it distorts the audio portion of the movie.
Despite the above deficiency, this video still merits a five-star!!!

The narrarator has a very annoying voice, and tries to make every statement sound as though it's an unbelievable, but true fact. If they dubbed the footage with David Attenborough's commentaries, it would have been much better.
