Children’s Program Review: Life (BBC TV Series)

by M. J. Joachim


Life is an amazing show featuring detailed documentaries about all types of animals and their behavior. Narrated by David Attenborough, this series provides intriguing videos that can easily capture the attention of kids of all ages, allowing everyone to get up close and personal with living animals in their native habitats, watch their mating traditions, see their survival skills at work and learn about them while enjoying their contribution to our world.

This series seemed to spare no expense in providing unique close-ups of the animals being discussed, which is undoubtedly why it became an international success story, after it was sold for world wide distribution. Episodes have been re-scripted, edited and tailored to their respective audiences around the globe. Oprah Winfrey narrates Discovery Channel’s American version of the series. Though I haven’t seen this one, I’m sure I will enjoy it, if given the chance. The original BBC version I watched was on Kids Netflix channel.

If you love animals or are just curious about their behavior when no one else is looking, you will most likely enjoy BBC’s Life series, or any of its series made available in your country.

Thanks so much for stopping by and reading this review today. Here’s to learning more about animals than we ever thought possible, and seeing them in their natural habitats too.
