Yes, yet another nature program, but one with a difference. Like most, it’s beautifully shot and the scenery is exquisite; the bonus is a snapshot of Hungary’s history, told subtly through its seasons, its floods and droughts and its 10,000 different animals (including Europe’s largest population of otters). That sounds like information overload, but it’s just enough to tickle the interest and keep the attention focused. The beautiful, haunting music sets the pace. The dancing red deer, the brave Hungarian grey cattle dog herders and the whitetail eagles are a delight in action. Croatia and Serbia are the subjects of the two programs in coming weeks.
