Are the sound effects in nature documentaries real? Are 99% of them real? Or are 99% fake? This video reveals all with examples from the BBC's 'Primates' and commentary from a top dubbing mixer.
And what if they're not real? Does it matter if they tell the story correctly and you hear things as though you were there?
What if sound effects editors exaggerate the sounds? Will the documentary still represent the real world, or will it enter the world of fantasy?
Judge for yourselves!
