Satoyama: Japan's Secret Watergarden
In the heart of rural Japan lies Satoyama, a landscape of lakes and rivers home to an incredible variety of fish, water birds, snakes and dragonflies. This poetic documentary follows 83-year-old fisherman Sangoro Tanaka, who lives according to an ancient way of life that has much to teach the world about sustainable living.
Narrated by David Attenborough
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.
The most complete episode guide i have found is over at TVRage, however only very few on the series are fully complete.
Complete series are:
1 - 11 & 24, 26 - 28 (28 being the recently ended series.)
I am trying to update it with as much as i can so if you have any further information to as sit would be most appreciated.
