    Saw it today Art on TV...Brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!
    BBC docu`s like that are worth paying for in spades... (I pay through a local cable company)
    Some of the best video and photography I have ever seen in my life. ...kin amazing!
    When David Attenborough and his productions are dead and gone, so go 50% of the BBC at least IMO.
    Shame but there you go... So sad.
    Hope I`m wrong.

    You don't have to go to the tropics to see fish that habitually predate on avian prey, been happening here in Europe for years

    But Attenborough's team have top-budget camera-work of those trevallie



    Sometimes you're flush and sometimes you're bust, and when you're up, it's never as good as it seems, and when you're down, you never think you'll be up again. But life goes on.
    The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the figure that she carries, or the way she combs her hair. The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her heart, the place where love resides. True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul. It's the passion that she shows to the outside world.

    Most of, if ANY/all of the stuff in that Docu. is not in the tropics..
    It took them 4 years to shoot that stuff......Best 4 years work they ever did IMO!

    The fish/bird shots were filmed in the Indian Ocean, hence the tropics,havent seen the rest of the documentary though,just the much publicised fish shot,attenborough doesn't actually live so far away,i have spoken to people who have seen him in Richmond,apparently he is a nice guy in person,would love to bump into him.

    It's not a fish I know, but I saw a YT video where a flamingo or pelican ate a pigeon - in a crowded park.

    The production crew never seem to get the credit they deserve.

    Sir David Attenborough... my hero since I was a small boy.

    91 years old now, and still going strong.

    If anyone deserves a state funeral when the sad day comes, then he does, IMO.
