Film review: Earth: One Amazing Day out on 20 October 2017

From BBC Earth Films, the studio that brought you Earth, comes the long-awaited sequel – Earth: One Amazing Day, an astonishing journey revealing the power of the natural world. If you enjoyed the BBC Earth documentaries and Deep Blue you will love Earth: One Amazing Day. The photography is breathtaking and narrator is superb! It’s a must see documentary for all children and government leaders. After seeing the beautiful Blue Planet (earth), there should be a sequel documentary to show how humans are destroying its marvels.

 

The Giant Panda

Over the course of one single day, the documentary tracks the sun from the highest mountains to the remotest islands, from exotic jungles to urban jungles. Astounding breakthroughs in filmmaking technology bring the audiences up close and personal with a cast of unforgettable characters; a baby zebra desperate to cross a swollen river, a penguin who heroically undertakes a death-defying daily commute to feed his family, a family of sperm whales who like to snooze vertically and a sloth on the hunt for love.

 

 

 

Told with humour, intimacy, emotion and a jaw-dropping sense of cinematic splendour, Earth: One Amazing Day is the enchanting big screen family friendly adventure that spectacularly highlights how every day is filled with more unseen dramas and wonders than you can possibly imagine— until now!

The sloth

 

If there’s one thing where the BBC really excels, is in its natural history programmes.  I was very impressed with the footage they were able to capture and wondered what powerful technology they used to go so close to the animals to follow them in underground tunnels or up in the sky and deep in the ocean. It must have cost a fortune but the end result is phenomenal. 

 

Tickets for early screenings of Earth: One Amazing Day can be booked at Dochouse cinema.
