I forgot to mention the seasonal, full motion time lapse shots! And like Tony mentioned, even the sound design was top notch.

Anyone know what camera they used for the high speed Shark footage? I was wondering how they could have got those shots as at 1000fps you can't just "leave the camera running" and hope to something happens.

I keep thinking how perfect P2 would be for shooting this kind of thing because of the Pre-roll function. I'm sure the Varicam 2 won't disappoint wildlife cinematographers.

Actually, material was aquired on 35mm, S16mm, HDCAM and DVCproHD, so some of that stunning imagery WAS captured on film. I gather that S16 was considered bottom of the pile in terms of image quality, but some of the underwater stuff (for example) couldn't be got on HD or 35mm. That may change with the advent of the HDV cameras or the HVX (all came out after the series was done shooting).

I saw a very informative talk on this programme from a BBC rep at VideoForum 2005.

See the foot of the page, where the belief is that it was shot with an Arri Tornado.
