Sooo, what you are saying is that to make it interesting for broadcast TV you would need to "dress it up" a bit. Add a bit of drama perhaps.
Nice point well made
Granted David Attenborough and the like make superb television but I doubt that many people whos favourite show is some Japenese Kamakaze load of dog shite are going to watch it.
Lets be honest if you want to compete with all the other dirge on TV that kids get exposed to you have to make it a bit special and dangerous (or appear to).
