Wildes Russland (Wild Russia) is a six piece series on the most fascinating wilderness in Russia. It includes 270 minutes of film, plus another 45 minutes on the making of, and some of the animals and some of the events shown have been captured on film for the first time.

To start with the superlatives, the filming took over 3.5 years, during which ten camera teams captured 600 hours of raw material (including 50 hours of aerial shots) and travelled over 100.000km. This means that the selection from over two hours of film for each minute shown allowed the team to really only choose the best of the best.

The landscapes are truly breathtaking, the animals shown often unique (and the handful that have been recorded for the first time shown to a much wider audience than the handful of people who travel to the remote areas of Russia, where these are found). In a way it is a nature documentary of the old style, which does not revel in scenes of nature's violence, so you will not find scenes of predators making a kill in here (with the exception of a long eared hedgehog fighting some insects, and some combative ants), meaning that there will be no need for explaining potential nightmare material away for smaller children watching it.

The six episodes focus on the Caucasus, the Urals, Sibiria, the Arctic, the Far East and Kamchatka. As the area covered spans a large part of the globe, you will find everything from the typically imagined Russian animals (bears, tigers, seals, wolves...) to antelopes and gazelles, camels, and other jungle and desert dwelling creatures, which would rarely be associated with Russia.

The quality of the filming is really spectacular and it is definitely worthwhile getting this in Blueray.

This series provides a deep insight into the most diverse parts of Russia and the impact the conditions can have on the wildlife in the regions.
It covers Siberia, Kamchatka, Russian Arctic, Caucasus, Primorye and Urals, with each being unique and fully worthy of its chapter.
Obviously the text on the case is written German, the menus are in German and the onscreen text (very little) is in German - but the menu allows you to listen to superb English naration which really has been edited to suit the monumental extremes of what is being portrayed to you.

The breadth of what is being covered is beyond words, I simply feel the need to say 'buy it' to all wildlife fans.

I've seen 'Wild Russia' in National Geographic Channel and I became an unconditional fan of this amazing Documentary!
This German version is brilliant, with a changing in sequence order, two or three different scenes, but without quality loss.
Following the same pattern of 'Wild China', the secrecy of Russia's Wilderness was finally broken!

In a Filmmaking like this full of detail, it should be impossible to speak about everything. So, resuming is the least we can do...

Two CDs, six Episodes.
CD1: the Caucasus, the Urals, Siberia.
CD2: the Arctic, the Secret Forest, Kamchatka.

Some of the aquatic and terrestrial species are exclusive of Russia. Large and tiny Mammals, lots of Bird species, Reptiles, Insects, Frogs, Turtles, Fish...
This huge Country has huge Wonders, as the mighty Mountains of Caucasus between the Black and the Caucasian Seas with Mt. Elbrus as its highest Peak, 2000 Glaciers, a mini Desert, mud Volcanoes, a Home for rare and exotic Animals like the Highland Bison, the Linx, the Sirian Brown Bear, the Bee eater and the Lizard with a Serpent's head and no legs.
In the Caspian Sea, the Sturgeon, the vision of a living fossil hunted for caviar!

The Ural Mts., Europe's largest Wilderness twice the size of Germany, from the Arctic Tundra to the Steps of kasakhstan where Taiga, the inaccessible Forest of Northern Hemisphere begins.
Swamp Lands extending as far as the eye can see, where Blue Frogs try to mate everything that moves...
And where European Mink and offspring and the Ural Howl and its chicks are a lesson of motherhood.
Southern Urals and a long tradition: the creation of a special kind of Bee in a Reserve born in 1986.

I had purchased many documentaries thus far and I must admit that Wildes Russland (Wild Russia) belongs to similar category as BBC Life/Planet Earth. Amazing picture quality and great audio too. A must have if you are into nature documentaries. (Note: This blu ray disc able to play on Region A players)
