I only wanted to take a moment, and attempt to express my appreciation for both Nature, and Nova.
Aside from a little local news, each morning, we watch almost no television, in my home. We have nothing against TV, we just rarely find time, or any programs worth making time for, except Nature and Nova.
I have been following the two programs, from their beginnings, and my now 15yr old son has spent his life, watching the two programs with me.
It’s not uncommon for us to share facts with others, after learning something new from the programs, and I often mention to friends, that in our house, only PBS Nature, or Nova, can cause my son and I to sit intently, in front of a television.
I should also mention that although I can still remember portions from the early episode about Condors, the intro to Okavango, River of Dreams, stirs emotions so powerful, I end up with tears in my eyes.
We tend to come running, each time we hear the Nature theme song, but watching a program we consider to be our familiar friend, transition into a modern day rock song, combined with the visual imagery, was truly stunning.
We just finished yet another episode, and I knew I needed to thank someone.
