I can't help but agree with the comments on the narrator and the (not far enough in the) background music. Maybe it's because I'm English, but I can't help but feel that American voices generally tend to be overly dramatic, and so can lack the calm authority and gravity of an English-English speaker such as Attenborough. That said, I don't think that such a small niggle detracts too much from the overall excellence of the piece itself. Pretty much like how the very first words in the intro to the o.p., which should read 'A homage', and not An homage, may grate on my nerves, but don't really detract from what follows.
