Thank you Sir David! What a beautiful way to start my day. I have just downloaded the story of life by Sir David Attenborough. His voice equals nature documentaries in my mind, it equals years of growing up and falling in love with forests and mountains, animals and plants! Thank you BBC! For those who don't recognise Sir David, please download the app! For those who do, of course you will download the app because you know what I am talking about!
Another BBC Triumph How do the BBC do it ? Attenborough's: Story of Life another excellent app to support another excellent BBC series. Dylan Thomas: The Road to Milkwood, D-Day's Last Heroes, World War One at Home, 50 Years of Horizon, Life Story the list goes on. Content of this quality deserves the highest praise. Keep up the excellent work I for one will continue to install these apps.
UNBELIEVABLE !! Few apps survive the first 2 mins of scrutiny .. , fewer still deliver at least what low expectations many have after those 2 mins, of the myriad of apps thrown out there. This one is so good it restores hope that it is possible. It looks like a really fitting testament to the work of a truly great naturalist.. superb work Beeb and worth the licence fee.
Everything we believed apps would be This reminds me of when people really tried their hardest to produce well polished apps. No real need to mention the world class content or the inspiring man involved in bringing such knowledge to the world. But one gripe, and it's substantial, is that there is no Chromecast support. Surely this is a must?
Very well made Everyone knows the content is great. But I have to commend the app itself, technically. It's fast and easy to use with an innovative time scrubber. One thing I'd like to see is a badge on the video thumbnails saying if I've watched it or not before, like on YouTube.
I grew up with sir David's documentaries,he introduced the world to me in his style that left me in awe at the content being shown and the way it was narrated. Thank you so much for making it available for me children. They can't have the childhood I had,due to the rapidly changing world around us,but watching Sir David will certainly be snatching something from the past for the future.
