Absorbing as this is, Planet Earth II chases viewers as assiduously and expertly as it chases the fauna, rewarding you with sharable stories rather than lingering lessons.

Believe us when we say that it's so beautiful it actually made us weep a little bit - and not just that, but it is genuinely thrilling, eye-opening and better than most of the action movies released this year.

"Cities," which follows groups of animals that have adapted to live in dense metropolises, is as beautifully filmed and edifying as the rest of the Planet Earth episodes, but with a more powerful ending than usual.

The theme running through it is the preservation of life for prey and predator, with starvation an ever-present threat. For the nature addict, this is must-see material. It's likely to turn everyone else into fans of Darwin.

Planet Earth II had access to giant leaps in camera and drone technology, and it used them to monumental success. The series feels different enough from the original to not just be a continuation, but something that stands on its own.
