David Attenborough prettified the nature

Gentle piano sounds, the ants, the green leaves of a tree-trunk to wear. Then the music becomes dramatic, a humpback whale throws back into the sea. So it goes in "Our Planet", the new Netflix series. In addition, we hear the voice, you can always talk, if you want to give a nature documentary reproduction.

It is the voice of the natural historian David Attenborough, the seas for many years for the BBC , and movies such as "Planet earth" or "Blue Planet" on the world, and in jungles on the way. In the Trailer, he promises the audience "the story of our changing planet and what we can do to make the earth flourish". the Netflix at the announcement of the seven-part series, free of modesty: a global event, visionary, pioneering, ambitious, latest camera technology, never-before-seen images.

Indeed, the series is brilliant technically, the slow-motion, Super close-UPS of Gefiedern and chases in the Savannah are impressive. It is what you want to see a mass audience. Attenborough's voice resounds in spite of his 92 years.

But criticism of the: "Our Planet" is a poor imitation of former BBC-documentaries that Attenborough is known. Netflix clichéd deliver, artificial representations of animals and megalomania forms instead of truly innovative storytelling.

"Would you say you have shown a realistic picture of the animal world, and natural ?", wanted to the "mirror" of knowledge. "Realistic" is a strange word, said the Briton. You could not show the whole range of truth. He did not believe that he had shown the nature is fundamentally dishonest. But he and others would leave you a dramatic appear, as she was in reality.

However, his enthusiasm for animals and nature is hardly played. She was there earlier than the Plan, to be famous. The "mirror" he told how he collected as a child, fossils and bones. For him they were magical, filled with millions of years of history. As a teenager, he could not understand why his older brother went with a girl dancing he could collect fossils.

Nevertheless, Attenborough is accused of, he had done in his natural film career too little for conservation. He makes the accusation, but only for the 50s and 60s, when no one on the protection of nature have spoken. After that, he made him in his films, always on the theme of the whole seven-Netflix-episodes would revolve around nature conservation. He didn't want to scare the audience but with moral sermons. You have to show people the beauty of nature, in order to begin you will love to use.

But at what price? Because just for "Our Planet" turned Netflix is in 50 countries on all continents, hundreds of crew members were used. It would be naive to assume that they travelled all of the work by E-Bike or walk to the shooting. Otherwise, Netflix would have stated probably so.

Today Our Planet is "run" on Netflix. In seven episodes, one sees the beauty of nature, but also the effects of climate change. Source: Youtube
