This thread prompted me to watch it again.
I like the added "how they did it" part, esp. a shot of an assistant putting out there hand and resting it on the belly of a flying goose. Even so, I'm not entirely comfortable with the imprinting concept just for a movie, even if there are benefits for improved understanding of migratory spp. According to the DVD, the Antarctic footage was shot on the island of Kose (pronounced Ko-say) in the Sthn Indian Ocean, but I dont know about geese in that part of the world. The credits also indicate Falklands Islands.
My TV is not that big so the credits are a bit tough to read.
