This week in the office we’ve been enjoying the sites and sounds of the world around us. We’ve had the Planet Earth series from Discovery Channel playing in the office as a sort of background noise and screen saver.
We’ve been talking about how much we would enjoy having this just playing in our houses as a similar background noise and to some degree like artwork hanging on the walls. The videography and imagery that’s caught on these discs is as much art as we would expect from photography from Ansell Adams or a painting from Claude Monet.
What we’d like to be added to the DVD series though would be alternate audio tracks that could be selected. An option for just having the music playing with no narration, or just the ambience sounds of the wind and animals, or perhaps the animal sounds and the musical orchestration as options.
In the series that we’re watching Sigourney Weaver does the narration and her voice is fine, but to have it just playing on TV’s throughout the house, it would be better to have no speaking.
