South Pacific Narration

South Pacific which is narrated by Benedict is being repeated tonight at 7p.m. On BBC4. If you need to hear his voice. 

Don't make people into heroes John. Heroes don't exist and if they did I wouldn't be one of them.

Just saw clips of these on YT, it's amazing! Recommended for more than just Benedict's voice, it really is a well-made documentary. Reef sharks vs Needlefish Coral gardening the flightless parrot

and lots more.

Re: South Pacific Narration

I've borrowed this on DVD from the library a few times... he's a fantastic narrator really!

I watched it with my aunt one time, didn't tell her who was narrating it and she told me that the narrator was very good, very clear in his pronounciation, was easy to listen to and understand and that he had a fantastic voice all together...

My aunt is a retired English teacher and she usually never have anyhing nice to say about narrators on the telly... 

And I have to agree! I love TV shows like that, and Ben really does a fantastic job

Re: South Pacific Narration

Just rewatching this on BBC 4 right now.
I missed this the first time.
No idea Benedict narrated a piece about that vile rite of passage where the poor young boys get beaten and cut, to make their skin 'crocodilian'.
Just hideous.
Dunno how Benedict could even do it.
Especially with the inane comment the piece ends on...
