Good isn't it. I think it's good that bog standard documentaries (that won't necessarily be top blu-ray sellers, or released at all) are being made in HD, as that's one of the last things you'd expect.

The "History of Scotland" documentary was, I feel, quite compelling viewing and clearly shows where the Beeb excels.

I thought the Swarm programme looked so much better in HD than it did in SD - I flipped between the two and the difference was considerable.
