The second disc stars Saba Douglas-Hamilton, daughter of the famous elephant expert Ian Douglas-Hamilton. Her documentaries include a mix of elephants, experiences with locals, following researchers, and other wildlife. It goes beyond Amboseli into the Namib and other parts of Africa, which is a nice touch. My favorite scene on this disc is actually her attempt to radio-collar desert lions.
This disc is far superior to another documentary about Echo, Nature: Echo of the Elephants. First of all, it has Sir David Attenborough as the narrator, which makes a big difference (trust me, having seen both recently, I can attest there is a difference). Second, this disc has several episodes and over 5 hours of footage, whereas Nature: Echo of the Elephants only includes the first documentary (around 40 minutes).

1. Echo of the Elephants - story of Echo and her new born calf Eli, and researcher Cynthia Moss. Hand down the best elephant DVD I have ever seen.
2. Echo of the Elephants The Next Generation- con't story of Echo and her family. Also excellent.
3. Echo of the Elephants: The Final Chapter - recap of the first two DVD and an update on what has happened to the elephants. I found this a bit slow and lots of repeating from the first two Echo stories.
4. Elephants Nomads of the Namib Desert - hour long look at two desert elephant families and their struggles living in the desert. Very good story.
Second DVD is about Saba who is also an elephant researcher in Keyna. All of these are 30 minutes long.
1 Living with Elephants: Saba helps an African woman find a herd of elephants so she can apology to them. (I didn't really care too much for this one.)
2. Nabibi's Desert Giants: also about the desert elephants, but also some great shots of other animals like Sea Lions and desert lions. (This was very good.)
3. Search for Virgo: Saba searches for an old elephant named Virgo. (Kind of of slow story.)
4. Elephants of Samburu (parts one and two): Saba and her adventures with several herds of elephants and rescuing of an abandoned baby elephant. Really enjoyed it. Lots of great footage.
The BBC's Natural Worlds trilogy of Echo and other Elephants is an amazing story (not yet finished) that will give everyone an insight to the world of this truly remarkable animal. Additional to Echo's southern Kenya homerange of Amobseli you also learn about elephants in other parts of Africa such as Namibia and the forest elephants of the Congo. Once again no one does the wildlife documentaries quite like the BBC... A compelation to treasure,

Not what I'd thought it would be. Echo itself was quite good. The other DVD's, for the most part, were poorly filmed and narrated. Read morePublished 19 months ago by Ruth Power
