Sunday Night Movie: The Challenge of Filming Monarchs

This behind-the-scenes BBC video has all my favorite things. Charismatic insects, face time with a knowledgeable scientist, narration by David Attenborough, and spectacular cinematography. And, a crossbow. I think I enjoyed it more than the actual film.

  1. I found I enjoyed the “Making Of” portions of Planet Earth more than the actual documentaries (although I thoroughly enjoyed those as well). The creative solutions that the filmmakers come up with are fantastic and the main reason why these BBC series’ are untouched by all nature documentaries!
