    Default David Attenboroughs LIFE

    I have just watched this and was astounded by the antics of spawning flying fish on it ,
    they would have sunk the boat had they not moved such was the quantity and weight of eggs they were sticking to it,did anyone else watch this superb program......

    Yes, amazing. And did you see some of the flying fish trapped in the spawn as the palm frond sank?

    Yep absolutely brilliant, I wish I had HD TV. The shots of the sardines shoaling are astonishing.

    Did you see the one with the Dragon thingies? Where they bit a wielderbeast or summut like that, then followed it for three weeks until it died.....amazing!

    Watched it, fantastic prog. I was a seaman in the 70's, and remember at night a few 100 miles west of the Canaries seeing flying fish. At night we opened the foredeck hatch to cool down , and all night flying fish landed on the deck, or in through the hatch, sometimes landing on our bunks. We were convinced they were flying towards our foredeck/anchor light.

    The flying fish were amazing - the slow motion footage as they tail walked to propel themselves out of the water was brilliant. The whole series has been, as usual, superb so far.
    I believe in reintarnation - I'll come back to life as a hillbilly.
