NGC presents The Great Migrations

When I was a kid, I wondered why some people have to move to other countries. Now that I’m old, I think I somehow knew why we have to move, and move, and move.

As Alec Baldwin says “Life on Earth is hard.”

In this new show of National Graphic Channel entitled The Great Migrations which will be airing this Sunday, the show will tackle not only the importance of migration.


I got a glimpse of the first episode, and I’d say that I got so into it that I would love to stay tune on NGC every Sunday to catch every story about these animals’ migrations.


On October 31 at 9:00 p.m., Great Migrations will feature Born to Move, Need to Breed, Race to Survive and Feast or Famine, a teaser for this whole series, telling a short cause and effect of the great migrations.
On October 7 at 9:00 p.m., Born to Move will tell the story of migrations of Sperm Whales, Red Crabs, Monarch Butterflies and Wildebeests.

On November 14 at 9:00 p.m., Need to Breed will be airing telling the stories about the important roles of the rocky beaches of the Falkland Islands, the dense forests of Costa Rica and Australia and the desolate savannah of southern Sudan to the survival of the species of these animals.

And on November 28 at 9:00 p.m., Feast or Famine will show how these animals are constantly moving to satisfy their hunger.


All these episodes will run for an hour discussing the amazing and incredible journeys of these animals, their reasons and the overwhelming challenges they face.

Personally, I was really amazed on how they managed to capture every tick and tock, every move and stop of these animals. The colors were so vivid that you’ll feel how to real each story is. And Alec Baldwin did a great narration, again, on this show.



Great Migration is done by Andy B. Casagrande IV (cameraman), Martin Dohir (cameraman), John Fryxell (scientific adviser), Sir Ian Douglas-Hamilton (scientific adviser), David Hamlin (senior producer, National Geographic Television), Dereck and Beverly Joubert (National Geographic explorers-in-residence, filmmakers, conservationists), Bob Poole (cameramen), Neil Rettig (cameraman), Chip Taylor (scientific adviser), Martin Wikelski (scientific consultant) and Rory Wilson (scientific consultant).

Great Migrations will also feature episodes on the science behind animal migrations.

On December 5 at 9:00 p.m., there will be the Great Migrations: Science of Migrations. On December 12 at 9:00 p.m., there will be the Great Migrations: Behind-the-Scenes. On December 19 at 9:00 p.m., there will be the Great Migrations: Rhythm of Life. And on December 26, a marathon of the whole Great Migrations will be airing from 11:00 am to 6:00 p.m.

I think the only thing that I can suggest if you want your kids to catch this show is watch these great migrations with them because there are sensitive parts that need parental guidance.

This is one TV series that you’ll never be disappointed, I’m very sure about it.
Happy watching!
