You may have heard about the volcano erupting underwater off the Tongan coast. In case you haven't heard about it or seen any footage then do click here and check out the video. It's pretty spectacular.
JUST when I almost give up on TV for dumbing now to new levels of imbecility I watch something that makes me go YES!! BBC4 was showing an episode of Natural World narrated by Sir David Attenboroug. The programme was called "Satoyama: Japan's Secret Watergarden"
It followed an 83 year old fisherman called Sangoro Tanaka, who "lives according to an ancient way of life that has much to teach the world about sustainable living.". Satoyama, in Japan, has lakes and rivers which is home to variety of fish, water birds, snakes and dragonflies. The camera work was amazing and for 50 minutes or so I was enchanted.
Ok it was a repeat but it was still the best thing I've watched in ages.
