This is not Blurayrip (more than 4.0 Gb), so I choose the HDTV version. It will be better size for download.
You can play with WMP, MPC, VLC.
Imagine a realm where the seasons' rhythms rule - where centuries of agriculture and fishing have re-shaped the land, yet where people and nature remain in harmony. Sangoro Tanaka lives in just such a paradise. At 83, he's a guardian of one of Japan's secret water gardens. Here - over a thousand years - towns and villages have developed a unique system to make springs and water part of their homes. From inside these homes, the streams pour into Japan's largest freshwater lake, Lake Biwa - an area 5 times the size of Paris - near the ancient capital of Kyoto. This is a habitat so precious the Japanese have a special word for it: "Satoyama" - villages where mountains give way to plains. They are exceptional environments essential to both the people who maintain them and to the wildlife that now share them.
Narrated by Sir David Attenborough
Note From http://thebox.bz/details.php?id=73351
As far as i can tell from various episode guides, this was a special, aired at the end of series 24 (about 3 months after) of Natural World. The footage used is taken from 2 seperate documentaries called 'Satoyama: Japan's Secret Garden (1999)' and 'Satoyama: Japan's Secret Watergarden (2004)'. These are not natural world documentaries. The footage was then given to BBC Bristol who re-edited into a 50 minute Natural World Special with David Attenborough narrating. He did not narrate the originals as i understand.
