  • Something New in the field, excellent footage, very well done.
  • Some captive footage
I received a complimentary copy of the British Mammal Guide DVD from the producers, who I have been helping a little over the last couple of years with advice and some doing some small mammal trapping. I watched the two DVD set over the Christmas period and will offer my thoughts on it. The cinematography is well done with nice footage of 79 British mammal species the total running time is almost 3 hours. Most of the footage is taken in the British isles of wild animals but doing this for all species such as wildcat is very difficult and some footage was filmed in captive collections. This does not detract from the overall feel of the DVD and some of the species would be almost impossible to film in the wild. The factual content is very good and well narrated and there are only a couple of very minor errors and omissions. Overall this DVD is very well done, has some nice footage and information. It is well worth adding to the DVD collection and there is nothing else on the market so this is a pioneering DVD.
