Reviews

Narrated by Sir David Attenborough and from the award-winning team behind Planet Earth & Blue Planet comes the ultimate portrait of the earth's Polar regions.

The Arctic and Antarctic remain the greatest wildernesses on Earth. The scale and beauty of the scenery and the sheer power of the elements – the weather, the ocean and the ice – is unmatched anywhere else on our planet. Yet these harsh environments are teeming with life: home to iconic animals from polar bears to emperor penguins and from killer whales to wandering albatrosses.

Using the latest camera technology to film on land, from the air, underwater and below the ice caps, Frozen Planet follows their fascinating lives throughout the seasons as they struggle to survive. With spectacular polar landscapes and amazing animal behaviour, often filmed for the first time, it captures the drama of an extreme natural world.

With both Poles under grave threat from climate change, this extraordinary series may be the last chance to witness these great wildernesses before they change forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars Breathtaking 23 Aug 2012
Format:Blu-ray
There are times when you know you have brought your kids up properly. Pretty decent gift buyers at the best of times, mine excelled their own high standards when they raided the piggy bank to buy me the BBC's Frozen Planet on Blu Ray for Christmas.

Having watched it and loved it when it was broadcast on TV, and in High Definition, this wasn't the same as when I reacquainted myself with the Planet Earth series I'd seen on normal TV when the Blu Ray box set came out, and finally got to see it in all its HD glory. This was quite simply a case of really having to have this on disc, for posterity, because it's such a damn good series.

All the elements we have come to expect are here - and what high standards we have been allowed to develop! - Attenborough's obligatory, authoritative narration of course. Stunning visuals, high drama. A glimpse of living things and environments so alien to the way most of us live, it's surprising that we even occupy the same planet.

The standout moment in the series for me was the devastating encounter between a bison and a wolf in the Arctic, in which predator and prey (the latter many times larger and more powerful than the former) are separated from their respective groups and face off in perhaps the ultimate life or death batttle ever captured in a nature documentary. I was emotionally drained when I watched it, and it retains its power on repeat viewings. It really brought home what a titanic struggle the daily life of some animals can be.

There have been so many nature programmes over the years that you wonder if there's a tiny corner of the planet that hasn't been filmed yet. But still Attenborough and the BBC deliver surprises, and show us new worlds right under our noses.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awe Inspiring 15 Dec 2011
By Liam
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This has to be the very best of David Attenboroughs offerings. Life, Planet Earth etc just amazing. The Blu Ray comes alive and is visually stunning. A wonderful collection for any avid enthusiast. Amazing photography and with 5.1 sound just awe inspiring.

You will not be disappointed

4.0 out of 5 stars White out 13 Oct 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
If you think about it, the poles would be the worst places for a filmmaker, mainly because there is nothing to the landscape except white, white and more white. But Frozen Planet on Blu-ray is gorgeous, with icy textures and snowy contrasts so vivid, it really feels like you're there. FP is not just about the landscape and the wildlife, but also the people who eke out a tough and sometimes treacherous living in the frozen clime. most amazing is the people who go out on a limb and a rope (literally) down the side of a jagged cliff just to collect bird eggs for their diet. Then there's the mind-blowing technological feat of building a huge research station in the Antarctic, with about 50 people working there at any one time. Imagine, -40 degrees out in the wild Antarctic winter, but 24 degrees within the high-tech research complex, and the greenhouse in there is the single brightest spot in the whole south pole during winter.
But the series is also strong on emphasising the melting ice and rising ocean levels due to climate change, and leaves us with a strong warning that all is not well with the Earth. With such gorgeous visuals of the natural landscape of the polar ice caps, it is impossible that the viewer not be moved by the destruction of nature by our irresponsible human hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 8 Dec 2011
Format:DVD
Such a beautiful series. Visually stunning and David Attenboroughs narration is excellent. It captivated my 16 year old daughter which is a real achievement! The final 5 minutes which is set to "What a wonderful world" had the whole family in tears.Absolutely wonderful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 8 Dec 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I think this is one of David Attenborough's best shows.
Watching Frozen Planet on my 50 inch LG Plasma the footage is stunning in HD.
This is well worth getting for Blu Ray as it will really show how good your TV picture can look.

Its also a really interesting show.

5.0 out of 5 stars superb 12 Dec 2011

For me this justifies the licence fee and the cost of the DVD. The best thing broadcast on any medium in 2011. Watch and learn, and enjoy. Hugely inspiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply stunning! 12 Dec 2011
By Fozzy
Format:Blu-ray
I must admit, I was expecting a lot from this new series. It lived up to my expectations and more!

The 1st episode really gets the series of to a spectacular start and, with the odd exception, it stays at that standard throughout the series.

Wolves, bison, owls and of course penguins and killer whales are just a few animals that are featured in this series. Other clips of glaciers and brinicles are just staggeringly beautiful. My 'WOW count' was undoubtedly in double figures!

A 'must' buy for anyone's DVD/Bluray collection. You'll watch this more than once just to appreciate how beautiful it looks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can these get any better? 11 Dec 2011
Format:DVD
Another review said not. I keep saying it about every BBC 'nature'documentary series, and keep being wrong. How do they film the spectacle of the bison and the wolf that you can hardly bear to watch? They even show you how in the 'endpiece' to each programme, and you still can't believe anything can be this good. Yet again, I can't even imagine what they can do to surpass this, and they don't have to- if the next is only half as good, it will still be unmissable.
