Jane Goodall’s When Animals Talk (Genius DVD)


Picture: C+     Sound: C+     Extras: D     Main Program: B-



Dr. Jane Goodall (now a Dame of the British Order) has been studying chimpanzees for nearly half a century and her work has reached into other animal life, which is on full display in Jane Goodall’s When Animals Talk shows how she and the scientific community have just begun to understand how various creatures communicate and co-exist.


This fine 89 minutes program shows us the value of all kinds of creatures, whether loved or loathed, with this demonstration and information allowing us to become more familiar with what we might disregard in the latter cases.  Never turning into a Dr. Doolittle mess (no gross jokes, no bad human voiceovers for trained animals, no musical numbers) or the like, this is very interesting and why we are not seeing more on this beyond The Dog Whisperer almost connotates a crisis with nature and man.  Be sure to check this one out.


The anamorphically enhanced 1.78 X 1 image is a little soft, but the footage is in clean shape considering that, while the Dolby Digital 2.0 Stereo is just fine for a location nature program, but there are no extras.
