5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime BBC Blu Ray Nature 18 Jun 2009
Format:Blu-ray
This is an excellent Blue Ray, my copy has 1 disc not 2 as indicated and includes the Yellowstone people diaries. Favourite chapter is Winter the photography is sublime with crisp sharp images favourite shot the fox diving through six foot of snow for a mouse. Makes you want to go and buy a plane ticket and just go there. Envy the "Snowman" on the Yellowstone people who spends all winter removing snow from buildings can see why he loves it.
Just buy it, it's the BBC at it's best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yellowstone experience 19 April 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
In this age of LCD Digital TV, this documentary about Yellowstone Natinal Park is probably the best ever produced. The photography is simply stunning, as is the stereo sound. It is almost as good as being there in person. One easily gets the 'feel' of the park, and the magnatude of it. The naration is excellent too, with just enough information to explain the picture, never talking down to the audience, or talking above their heads.
But the most impressive aspect is the photography. I particularly found the snowfalling in the first part to be the most stunning visual display I have ever seen on my 32" LCD TV.
I may never get to Yellowstone in person, but I feel that I have 'been there' and probably seen more of it than if I did actually visit in person.
I cannot recommend it highly enough.

By Rowena Hoseason HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:DVD
Yellowstone isn't the sort of natural history documentary to challenge your perceptions, but it is another of the BBC's thoroughly well-produced programmes which is a pleasure to kick back and enjoy.
The park's geology produces a weird backdrop of hot springs, savage winters, vast panoramas filled with wild elk, wolves and bears. There are three 50-minute episodes, one each for Winter, Summer and Autumn, demonstrating the savage extremes which the Yellowstone wildlife must endure. Snow as deep as houses settles for six months, the wild-fires spread in summer. All of this is filmed in gorgeous clarity and detail, demonstrating how the plants and animals cope with one of the harshest environments on the planet which swings between such complete extremes.
Yellowstone has also revised some of my opinions about different animlans; sheep, for instance. The Big Horns which survive throughout the bitter winter in the park are nothing like the tame creatures we see in the UK; the short sequence of the males engaging in their annual ferocious pre-breeding fights is astonishing. They're aggressive, no-holds-barred fighters -- not at all woolly-minded!

Perhaps the most enjoyable part of the series is, ironically, the ten minute fillers which concentrate on the people who work and spend time i nYellowstone. The people who watch geysers are a curious bunch, and the guy who clears the snow from rooftops for six months at a time must really like his own company! Similarly, a chap who swims (in a crash helmet) in the Yellowstone river gives a radically different perspective of life in the surrounds -- and the unhappy effects of introducing foreign species for sport fishing.

Yellowstone underlines the global importance of the National Park, especially now that increasing urbanisation touches almost every wild area in the world. It's an easy series to like, and enjoyable to watch again. Would be really stunning in Hi-Def, too.
8/10

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful wild spaces... 12 Jun 2009
By RMCW
Format:DVD
We bought this for our 5 year old son who is animal mad - the beauty of this excellent series is that it is suitable for children and adults alike and can be watched and enjoyed by a wide age range. The series itself is beautifully shot and will make you plan a trip to Yellowstone to see this amazing place for yourself!

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning 9 July 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
After watching this it makes me want to go there to see it for myself.

The picture is crystal clear and gives you the feeling you are right there with the animals and can feel the cold as the snow falls in winter.

Any documentory lover would remiss in not adding this to their collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful and educational 13 Aug 2009
By Peter H
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
The plants, animals and people that make up Yellowstone National Park.

If you like nature and have a blu-ray player click this on to your wish list, because you can't possibly feel short-changed. The four seasons are spread over three chapters and between them (if you play from back to front) you get diaries of the people that live and work in the park.

(These bits are not all in HD).

Might have liked to see more of the birds - but that is just me and you can always replay the bits you love. The humming bird scenes are just sublime in HD. Will probably end up watching it many times over - and so would you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another fantastic nature doc from the BBC 25 Mar 2009
Format:DVD
Last Year, the BBC broadcast a fanatastic series - Wild China. This year they've almost done it again. I don't know whats going on over at the BBC but there is some seriously good photgraphy going on at the moment. Like Wild China, the scenery is mind-blowing. Unfortunately. They insist on ending each installment with a profile of the people who work in the park or have close connections with it. I'm not sure if these are on the DVD but they certianly spoil the effect that the program has on you. They aren't that interesting and after a very moving documentary, a group of people getting excited about geysers over and over again can ruin the humble feeling that the program leaves you with.
Despite this, these 50 minute documentaries are intriguing, mind blowing and awe inspriring and I would highly recommend them for anyone interested in Nature and Science.
