There are many different documentaries based on the same topic area, however depending on how it is films and the way it has been shown can give the viewer many facts, details and perspectives on that particular subject.
During this unit i have watched many different documentaries,
studying the different formats in which they have been laid out and the
similarities between them. However one producer has produced what i feel a very
simple but fascinating documentaries, the way they are filmed and documented
make them suitable for any age. David Attenborough was the producer that i felt
captured his subject very professionally .
He is best known for
writing and presenting the nine Life Series, in conjunction with the BBC Natural
History Unit, which collectively form a comprehensive survey of all life on the
planet. His documentaries are on nature, he has many many small documentaries
about 45 minutes long. Attenborough is the writer producer and narrator or all
his documentaries, throughout his career he has spend many years collecting all
the filming and information he needs to collect to produce his work.
