News & Interviews for Secrets of the Whales: Miniseries
Amazing footage shows not just how the sea mammals look, but how they live...
The show's impact has, needless to say, everything to do with Brian Skerry's impossibly intimate photography of these creatures.
There's a formula to this style of "edutainment" that's comforting but also a bit frustrating at times, as the whole show could benefit from a fresher approach.
The bottom line in watching this breathtaking documentary is simple -- words alone cannot do it justice.
With its stupendous footage, Secrets of the Whales is educational and you just might fall in love with these majestic creatures.
Poetic...a singularly impressive nature doc series, on a par with the best of the BBC and Disney Nature.
The four-part series shot in 24 locations around the world, is astonishing.
Audience Reviews for Secrets of the Whales: Miniseries
4d agoThis show will blow your mind. This while change the way you think about whales and the ocean as a whole completely.
May 04, 2021Pretty hard to get excited about a nature series that begins with a lie. Orcas are not whales. Let me say it again: ORCAS ARE NOT WHALES. They are the largest member of the Dolphin family. The fact that they are nicknamed "Killer Whale," doesn't make them a whale. Any child who ever watches "Wild Kratts" knows this; any producer, director, writer, or photographer involved in an educational nature series SHOULD know this. The first episode in the series made me distrust any further information offered in the rest of the series. Disney, Brian Skerry, the producers, and director failed us this time. Watch it for the photography if you wish--that part is beautiful--but get your scientific information elsewhere. https://www.fisheries.noaa.gov/species/killer-whale
