Aerial Cities (Smithsonian Channel) – Premieres 8th April
Showing off the fact the production company has purchased a few drones, this is a programme that shows a 24 hour period of a US city using nothing but aerial shots.
During the programme it shows some of the professions in the city, tourist attractions and places of recreation for the residents, all of which take place at some altitude. As well as this the show goes into some of the history of the city, explaining how it was founded and then showing some of it’s infrastructure.
With the programme being 50 minutes long it is a complete grind to get through and comes over as a rushed idea on how to stitch a load of aerial shots together to make a TV show. It is not enjoyable.
