Surely americans can get over the british accent and the different way we say things? Rest of the world tolerate american sayings and spellings for ease. I know you guys here can because you're (mostly) intelligent, educated (to a standard) human (mostly) beings.
Sorry to rant, but the repackaging these brilliant pieces of television I think loses something.
Attenborough is one of my heroes, what I don't have on DVD I've downloaded his collection (about 20GB I'd guesstimate). If anyone is curious of checking out the same, PM me and I'll nudge you in the right direction.
i would prefer the brit as it makes it sound classier.
but oprah (and signory for PE) do a good enough job. they keep it rather monitone so they dont detract from what your watching. you know its them, but you get lost in their voice after a while and just hear the words instead of the voice, if that make sense.
