The Natural World, Puerto Rico and Roger Webb
The Natural World strand goes from strength to strength. Despite its long history (originally called The World About Us, it’s been running for over 50 years and has over 500+ films to its name) it never tires, maintaining its style with high production values and compelling stories.
And now the 17/18 series has kicked off with a show that has a strong conservation angle and the critics loved it " 'Puerto Rico, Island of Enchantment reminded you what a disservice it would be if the Attenborough-style approach got edged aside. This was an altogether more improving hour — who knew that Puerto Rico was such an example to the planet for its conservationism?” wrote James Jackson in The Times
So what is it about The Natural World formula that makes it so special and so resilent?
