Yes, Meryl Streep's voice was low and soothing, but appropriate as the voice of all sneaky, tricky, cunning flowers.

But, I did think the amplitude of the music was too high and did compete with Meryl's voice in some places.

I also think nature programs can have a tendency to overdo the amount of music as well. I think this was true of this program. I'd rather hear the sound of an insect, animal or waterfall than the blaring music of a full orchestra trying too hard to force a mood that is already inherent to the natural sound and the image.

While the topic is interesting to me, I found the music and Meryl Streep's voice so low and soothing and almost monotone that I kept drifting off to sleep.
