Remember three years ago when I told you to watch Planet Earth? The next series from the BBC Natural History Unit, called Life, is coming to US television on Sunday night, March 21st, 8pm, on all 7 Discovery network channels, and their HD channels as well, so watch those versions if you can. Unfortunately, it will be narrated by Oprah Winfrey. I’m sure she’ll do a fine job, but again, I just prefer Sir David Attenborough. If I ever meet him, I might ask him to narrate my outgoing voice mail message. I won’t be watching it, as the signal quality where I am would be stepped down/compressed twice before it gets to my television, then would be a standard definition picture onto an HDTV, meaning even worse visual quality. Fortuitously, I already have the region 2 DVD and will be buying the region A Blu-Ray version upon release.
Trip update: I’m now back at work, though too busy to sort through nearly 4000 photos (it grew since last time) and catch up on what I missed while away. At least I saved a few months of paying for the flickr pro upgrade until I really need it. I hope to be able to get them uploaded within a month (I’ll be away from a computer for several-day-long stints) and that you come back for a look.
