The Year The Earth Changed (2021) – A Quick Capsule Review

Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
It’s often hard to feel positive for the future of our world.  Often documentaries on the natural world highlight just how hopeless things are and how change, often, is too late. Thankfully The Year The Earth Changed is a more positive look at, as Covid ravaged the planet, how nature started to take back the seas, skies and cities they once dominated.  It’s stunning stuff, exquisitely filmed by the BBC natural history unit who make use of their drone fleet in spectacular fashion. Narration, naturally, comes via the legendary tones of the peerless David Attenborough who guides us through this once in a life time phenomenon with his usual passion and power.   A short watch – at just under 50 minutes – leaves you hopeful for more and, with just a little hope, that things may not be lost just yet.
