Desperation in narrative: the voiceover artist in Wild Down Under, a wildlife show about Australia and thereabouts, did his best, but no one could make this feeble line dramatic: “And New Caledonia has its own monster, the giant gecko! It’s the world’s largest gecko, as big as a rat!” Given that they then moved on to the mountain parrot and then the kiwi, you can see why they were trying to liven things up a bit. The world’s largest cricket didn’t amp up the thrills any either. It also featured the very weird line “And as any teenager will tell you, the place to hang out is the car park.” Nonetheless, lots of pretty pictures.
