Interesting programme on tonight on Channel 5 at 21:00

Some of you may find this interesting. It's a documentary about a year in the life of Yorkshire. Here's the synopsis form the Freeview TV Guide.

Documentary series charting a year in the life of the fauna of the Dales and North York Moors National Parks, season by season, beginning with spring. It is the season when the parks' animals must find food, a mate and begin to raise a family. Adders battle to secure a partner, while grebes prefer a mating dance. On the coast, a quarter of a million sea birds arrive to nest, many returning to exactly the same nest site every year. And up around Malham Tarn, an injured, pregnant roe deer desperately seeks spring's green shoots to survive.

Might be worth a watch or a series record.

The term "pudding" predates any sweet cakey dessert (or whatever that american glop is that they call "pudding"):

 

The word pudding is believed to come from the French boudin, originally from the Latin botellus, meaning "small sausage", referring to encased meats used in medieval European puddings.

@PeterLoftus  And blanc mange is white pudding but we have to say it if French or we'll be considered white supremacist.

I was going to ask if it had any sexual content but I see it has that and more besides! Think I'll give the dogging a miss tonight! Funny

Re: Interesting programme on tonight on Channel 5 at 21:00

Certainly good film making but is it all genuine ?

For example that Queen Bee coming out for the first time, how could that possibly be filmed, even if you set up a small remote camera it would not have the ability to move around the Bee as shown in the film.

Then there is the shot of the Adder, how could that be filmed unless it was in captivity ?

As stated it was good filming and I enjoyed the program along with that and other areas of Yorkshire where I have often walked but what are others comments on my points about the above.

Re: Interesting programme on tonight on Channel 5 at 21:00

not to mention the twee comments - such as will it survive or not asked several times

I think that because it was shot on a budget a lot of the shots were from archive or, as suggested, fiddled

@gleneagles

Don't you ever watch the making of Planet Earth programmes? Of course those scenes weren't real. It's all put together in studios and spliced back into the original recording to seem more believable. It's called 'good film making'. Thumbs Up
