ReviewSource Variety
Review The blessings of high-definition are providing a major boost to nature documentaries, if Nat-Geo's "Galapagos" and Discovery's upcoming "Planet Earth" are any indication; both bask in ravishing images of natural wonders...Throw in the central role Galapagos played in Charles Darwin formulating his theory of evolution, and it's a welcome trip...These kinds of documentaries appear to be gaining new life thanks, perhaps foremost, to the visual splendor that's become possible technically and the ability to exploit such projects on other platforms, setting them apart from the demo-chasing fare that has increasingly filled outlets once devoted to history, arts & entertainment and the sciences. An undertaking like "Galapagos" -- shot over 18 months -- also demonstrates that presented properly, educational material needn't be boring or relegated to the drowsy confines of PBS.
