Witness as five film crews follow a rich variety of bird migrations through 40 countries and each of the seven continents. With teams totalling more than 450 people, 17 pilots and 14 cinematographers used planes, gliders, helicopters and balloons to fly alongside, above, below and in front of their subjects. Open your eyes to the wonders of the natural world as you fly along with the world's most gorgeous birds through areas as remote as the Arctic and the Amazon and as populated as Paris and New York City. See why The Daily Mail declared "You will never have seen quite such an impressive, exquisitely photographed collage as this".
Outstanding flight photography

It is such a shame that so much effort went into the photography of birds in flight, particularly in formation, but also in a stampede and many other breathtaking scenes; but so little effort into finishing off the film. There are some sub-titles but not many. There is some narration by a Frenchman whose command of English is so poor that he searches for words during the commentary. The question that must occur to everyone watching the film is "How do you get such close up shots of birds in flight?" If you switch on the directors commentary it is so boring that you will probably miss the allusion to the answer. Essentially only 2 ways are vaguely described though it is suggested there were more. It could have been so much better with so little extra.
