Reviews

Using pioneering techniques in 3D macro and time-lapse photography, he traces them from their beginnings on land to their vital place in nature today, exposing new revelations along the way. He moves from our time scale to theirs, revealing the true nature of plants as creatures that are every bit as dynamic and aggressive as animals. And he does all this in one unique place, a microcosm of the whole plant world where some 90% of all known plant species are represented: The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew. This spectacular adventure through the Kingdom of Plants is so immersive and compelling it has the capacity to amaze even the least green-fingered.

The front cover of this disc proudly displays a quote from a review that says : "The most fetching use of 3D technology since Avatar". But this is not an idle boast or exaggeration. There are some truly stunning images here and although there is some occasional use of computer-generated animation, these images are drawn from the real world.

We know from previous nature documentaries that time-lapse photography can produce some incredible, unexpected images; as we see plants sped up until we see them moving almost like insects or animals. But what about time-lapse photography in incredibly high definition and in 3D. Does it get any better than this?

Well apart from that, this film pioneers new techniques in 3D Macro Photography, to show unbelievable detail in close-up of plants. We also see images from electron microscopes,of pollen grains magnified seven thousand times, in 3D. Further than that, special camera techniques are used to show how insects see plants in the ultra violet spectrum.

There is such extraordinary variety on show here, that you forget that the vast majority of this was shot in one place in England - the Royal Botanic Gardens at Kew. But this also gives a serious scientific focus to the films. For example, we see how a species of water lily was saved from extinction by the work done at Kew.

Of course we know that anything David Attenborough puts his name to, will have the utmost integrity in terms of scientific rigour and this is no different. It is not the BBC, but it is the same team who made Flying Monsters (Blu-ray 3D)[Region Free] and we have the same spectacular photography and attention to detail.

This is the best 3D BluRay I own. The quality of video clips and time lapses is stunning. I made many 3D pictures and videos in the last 8 years and was often disappointed by the quality (e.g. 3D window violation, vertical misalignment, exaggerated parallax) of some professional 3D BluRay products. However, "Kingdom of Plants in 3D" is one of the best product so far. Not only due to almost perfect 3D, but also due to extremely interesting subject. I never imagined that plants can be so interesting. :-)
Thank you, David Attenborough!

I got this to test out my new passive 3d tv. All the hyperbole in the other reviews is justified. It is an astounding piece of work, whether you like plants or not.

Brilliant film. Stunned for whole length of film. Feels like looking through a window rather than watching a screen. Used Alienware 3d laptop with nvidia active shutter glasses

David Attenborough is fantastic as always and if you have a 3D screen and want to experience a next generation documentary, this is the one.

The pictures are absolutely beautiful and stunning and so are the 3D effects. Also the content was very enticing, I can't wait for another David Attenborough 3D documentary.

Highly recommended!

David Attenborough's nature programmes are always worth watching. This one has some truly spectacular 3D qualities and surprising images of plants. You can actually learn something from "Kingdom of Plants". I think this disc would be a good example to show to your friends to convince them that a 3D TV is worth buying. I am sure that I will watch these programmes again and again.
