The show is split into 5 half-hour episodes. The picture quality is very good, being a clean 1080p release. The sound quality is ok, being in simple Dolby Digital stereo. It's the cinematography that really shines here however. The scenes take place in city canals, coastal marshes, estuaries, river deltas, woodlands, mountain forests and even winter-frozen moors. Williams takes the viewer on a journey all over Wales exploring the different kinds of birds and how they migrate, find food, survive extreme conditions and most importantly, coexist with humans. Dozens of species are shown and described, many of which either live in the USA where most people reading this review live, or which have close relatives that are nearly identical to them that live in America. In other words, even though they are Welsh birds many American viewers will see familiar faces as they join Williams on his expeditions. I particularly enjoyed seeing the many kinds of Chickadees that live in Wales. Given the price of this show, which at the time of writing is only a little over $8.00 on Amazon, I highly recommend this purchase. Anyone who likes nature and nature documentaries will enjoy this as will people looking for clean, safe and educational viewing for children. This is definitely a good buy.
This wonderful 5 part BBC series only covers the birds that live in Wales, each episode runs 30 mins.
Still i did learn some stuff, and there was some beautiful and intersting feathered friends.
The PQ and AQ on this blu-ray relasese is stellar, and it's affordable from the films ar Mill Creek, this is also availble on Secret Life of Birds - 5 Part Series DVD for thsoe who dont own a blu-ray player.
I used to go bird watching when I was younger lad, I miss them good ol' days.
I need to do it again one day...
