I have been watching the BBC series Planet Earth on Sunday evenings. It is a remarkable program exploring some magnificent locations throughout the world and capturing wildlife in shots never before seen.

Yesterday’s episode explored the water life throughout the Earth, unbelievably some lakes are larger than the whole of Wales while areas of Brazil boast marshland with a greater surface area than the whole of England. The fishes, amphibians and mammals that live in these locations are equally as impressive.

One of the other interesting parts of the series is where we see how the cameramen actually filmed the scenes and animals – it’s not just a case of sticking a camcorder in a pool of piranhas and hitting the record button!

I find it so exciting how technology is being used nowadays to capture scenes which, 10 years ago would have been impossible. Man is always eager to explore the vast reams of space although there is so much of the planet yet to be uncovered.

If you haven’t seen this series yet I urge you to watch it next Sunday, even if you are not a fan of nature programs this series is so good it is worth an hour of your evening, after all what else would you be watching?

    So you stumbled across my blog. No doubt after searching for something bizarre on Google. Before you hit that 'Back Button', why not stay and have a read for a few minutes?

    If you are after a website which gives advice on how to hack an iPhone X, download the latest Steven Seagal movie, or view nudy ladies, you've come to the wrong place and may now press 'Back'.

    However, if you would like a lifestyle blog, written by a 30-something chap, living in Bath (England), feast your eyes on this.

    You won't discover how to copy PlayStation 4 games. What you will find is a blog, covering life in the West Country, the highs and lows of supporting two unsuccessful football teams, while sharing a house with a wife and rabbit.

    All written by a man, somewhere on the sanity-scale between normal and eccentric.
