Hi Gavin, It appears you have THE dream job. I bought all the mentioned series on Blu-Ray and I love the cinematography, the stories, the sound, the narration.
I believe these shows are culturally and historically very important. I work as an editor for Canada's national broadcaster (BBC and CBC do a lot of co-productions) and I would love to work on similar docs.
How much pre-production is done for a series like Human Life, as far as the story goes? Is it shaped by the editor or does the crew know more or less what it's going to look like?

Also, how much footage is shot vs the length of a final episode? Regards,
