Planet Earth

The latest David Attenborough nature documentary series, shot in HD. This ambitious 2006 series, described as 'the definitive look at the diversity of our planet' was the first ever to be filmed entirely in high definition. Every episode but the first one looks at one of the Earth's natural habitats and examines its local features, together with the breadth of fauna found there.

While filming it, the crew caught several firsts - places and animals never before caught on camera. The fact that it was co-funded by Discovery Channel, BBC and Japan's NHK, took 5 years to make and was shot in over 200 locations is apparent and the series is everything you'd expect from Sir David Attenborough and his team if they were unconstrained by budget or practicality.

Amazing BBC

A Real and amazing series.

Superb viewing

Our whole family enjoyed watching this high quality nature series. At the price offered it is an absolute steal.

Absolutely outstanding

Fascinating information coupled with stunning photography, narrated by the inimitable David Attenborough. With an added bonus section at the end of each episode about how it was filmed. The VERY BEST DVD I've ever seen. Don't think twice, order it NOW!

Truly Epic Filming taking wildlife documentary to

A true masterpiece of film making. If you enjoy documentary-type film-making, then you will not reject a cent spent on this set. Episodes are well put-together, and offer enough information to surprise and entertainment, but not enough to bore. Every episode is arranged as a +- 45 min piece on the area, followed by a 10 min piece on the most challenging thing about filming that episode. Episodes cover the following areas: - From Pole to Pole - Mountains - Fresh Water - Caves - Deserts - Ice Worlds - Great Plains - Jungles - Shallow Seas - Seasonal Forests - Ocean Deep An especially special one is the ocean episode, with a full great white shark breach captured in ultra slow-motion. If you are even considering this DVD set, it should already be in your basket. You will not regret it.

A masterpiece

One of the most beautiful documentaries I have ever seen (and I've seen many). Absolutely stunning photography, wonderful commentary (by none other than David Attenborough) and interesting "making of" featurettes after each episode. Many scenes will tug at the heartstrings, some will make widen your eyes and some will even make you laugh. The sheer scale of the documentary is astounding - and it belongs in your collection! Buy it now!

Brilliant!!!!!!!!!

This is a true masterpiece every single episode is absolutly outstanding. I have never encountered such good filming. It is truly awesome and well worth the money spent.
