When I was a child, there was no satellite TV and there are only so many hundreds of times you can watch the same Tom & Jerry tape.
Cartoons started at 6:00 pm everyday on KTV 2.
Between the cartoons and the family-friendly sitcoms, were nature & animal documentaries.
I'd usually go out and play then.
But soon, it got too hot and I got too fat to go outside.
After a much resistance, I started to watch them documentaries.
It was one of the few smart things I've done in my life.
They are, in a big way, responsible for my love of nature, my curiosity and my affinity for animals and wildlife cinematography.
If you've never watched Discovery or Animal Planet or National Geographic, here's a little of what you've missed.
The Pistol Shrimp.
The Lyrebird. (Trust me on this, watch the whole thing)
