Warplane (2006) - Channel 5, UK - narration. this was a documentary series consisting of about 8 episodes, each an hour long. I caught one of the episodes on VHS, & have a couple of sound files floating around on a flash disk somewhere, which I'll dig out to share. the best answer to a sleepless night that I've found is listening to this narration - unless, of course, you're into the aeroplanes as well.

The Last Tally Ho? (2006) - BBC 1, UK - narration. this was a one-off documentary about the hunting with hounds ban put into place, in Britain, last year. regardless of who was narrating, I intended to watch the programme, as a horse-rider, & casual student of politics, who found it difficult to see the pros of fox-hunting. I'm glad Paul did this one; though looking at the Horse & Hound forums, I see that some pro-hunts persons feel that the programme misrepresented their views. anyway, as soon as I heard ~that voice~ I rushed for a spare VHS with no luck & found my dictaphone instead. unfortunately, with it being straight from the TV, the quality of the recording is poor, & Paul's narration is broken up by interviews, but - if there's any interest - I'd be happy to upload it.

Oh, man!

That one looks like such a good one too.

Maybe they will repeat it, or put it on DVD soon.

It's the kind of series, it seems, that would be distrubted well.

This one,

Foetus Snatchers (2005) (TV) Narrator

Very gruesome.

Plot Summary for
Foetus Snatchers (2005) (TV)
This gripping documentary reveals a terrifying and growing crime - foetal theft. Heavily pregnant women are murdered and their unborn children are ripped from their wombs. The perpetrators of these unthinkable crimes? Other women desperate to raise a child. This one off documentary uncovers three real cases in the US in which "womb raiders" have stolen the foetuses of innocent women. What desperate need drives women to commission these crimes, and who on earth carries them out?

--------------
I've heard of baby stealing, but not that....Brrrrrr, the stuff of horror movies.

The Boy with Incredible Brain - Meet Daniel, a mathematical genius who can recall pi to 22,514 decimal places. He is on a quest to discover how he is able to do such calculations. (2006, one hour long, Paul McGann narrates)

Being shown on Discovery Channel, UK, right now.

My brother is the only one who is still interested in what the programme is about. I've left the door open to the study however, so those dulcet tones can still wash over me. *purr* May have to look into getting me some of those audio books he's done...

Thanks for the title. Wink I'll add it to the list and see if it's being shown on this side of the pond.

I was able to borrow the VHS version of this from my local library.

Ends of The Earth: The Secret Abyss of Movile Cave
ISBN 1575235749
1997 VHS; 1999 DVD

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/41F5APHWF1L._SS500_.jpg

"Far beneath the Romanian countryside, a 5 million-year-old secret lies waiting to be revealed--Movile Cave's mysterious environment has been sealed from the world for ages. Shrouded in darkness, the cave is full of unusual creatures, strange chambers, and underground lakes--all never before seen by human eyes. With 33 new species of life and a history that is a biological enigma, Movile Cave is now considered one of the greatest scientific discoveries of the 20th century. Prepare yourself for an amazing journey to the Secret Abyss, and experience a place unlike any you've ever imagined."
