Who watched David Attenboroughs' Africa tonight? I know the documentaries he narrates are always amazing, but this one just took the cake, and the wine and the little cheesies snacks as well. It was breathtaking. :)

I haven't seen "Africa" yet, but I love all David Attenborough narrated wildlife documentaries. The last one I watched was about "Birds"... the many species amongst them and how they communicate with each other. I've learned that each country and region has birds that communicate with different dialects than elsewhere (even though they are the same type of species). And what they're saying to each other with all those different sounds. Absolutely fascinating.

You can watch them on BBC I PLAYER. Might not work if you're not from the UK, so you might need to connect yourself to a VPN.

I watched it! Me and my friends love watching it stoned. IT's the best thing you can watch. You're glued to it. Daid Attenborough is amazing.

Planet Earth is cool as well!

You're not a nerdling, or at least not for this reason. It's currently screening on Australian free to air TV. Most people on this forum are not in Aus.

Which is why I put this on the Australia forum :giggle:

Ok, I navigated to it from new posts, I didnt know it was in the Aus section:eek: Neither did some of the non-Aus respondents I think.

They are bloody impossible to find Melly, this is the convoluted and illogical path to the Australia forum:

ADD Forums - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Support and Information Resources Community (http://www.addforums.com/forums/index.php) > TREATMENT & MANAGEMENT (http://www.addforums.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=5) > Advocacy, Coaching, Counseling and Practitioner Referrals (http://www.addforums.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=313) > International Referrals (http://www.addforums.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=312) > Australia (http://www.addforums.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=99)

p.s. Australia is not a region... it's a Country! and a Continent as well.

p.p.s. To the OP: I love Attenborough's Docos, if it's got his name on it, it's always worth watching!

I have asked in the suggestions section (a while ago now) to make the regional forums more accessible. They used to be many years ago. No-one's going to think about checking under 'advocacy' for Australia.
