Absolutely Amamzing! !!
This is one of the greatest documentaries I have seen for a very long time. Simon really gets into the deepest parts of every place he visits.
The scenery is just spectacular also. Breath taking!!!
I have just purchased the seasons pass and I am very excited about the forthcoming EP's.
WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!!!
Fascinating and intellectually engaging
Indian Ocean With Simon Reeve has broadened and updated my knowledge on the difficult problems of overfishing, pollution, global climate change, plastics (eek!), deforestation, and war. This documentary provides a unique view into the diverse cultures and beautiful lands around the Indian Ocean.
I am truly fascinated by both the joyful and heartbreaking stories of the people Simon visits. So much so that I am unaffected by the understandably unavoidable shaky camera work which usually sends my stomach turning. Each episode of this series takes the audience through a range of emotions, from being humbled to being frustrated to being very much amused at seeing Simon eat the local ‘delicacies’.
I highly recommend this series, along with all of Simon’s other documentaries, to everyone. The problems presented will eventually affect all of us, and if we are ever to come up with solutions, we need to be aware of exactly what the problems are.
