Although the programme was interesting the shooting style was very distracting. Whip pans, pulling focus once a shot is established and reframing the shot whilst a person is doing a piece to camera really detracts from the documentary content. It's fine for pop promos but not for a prime-time documentary. You can stick a Z1 on a tripod you know!
It also looked like it was graded by a colour-blind person.
