5.0 out of 5 stars An Oustanding Focus On China
The BBC has produced an oustanding focus on China. A China you would never see on a regular tour. Magnificent diverse landscapes, the enormous contrasts of the plants and animals, the ingenuity of China's ethnic groups. Water buffalo on mountain paddy fields. Paddy fields with golden carp. Clever! I was completely captivated. The photography is superb. This will make you...

3.0 out of 5 stars Where did the HD go?
I think the content of this film has been covered enough so I will concentrate on the Blu-Ray presentation itself. When I watched the series originally on my HD tv the picture quality was amazing but for some reason this has not transferred to the Blu-Ray. The picture quality is good, but falls way short of all my other BBC Blue-Rays and indeed, the original HD TV...

5.0 out of 5 stars Symphony of China, 21 July 2009

This review is from: Wild China [DVD] (DVD)
China is a very large country and its diversity is incredible, deserts named Taklamakan - translation "You go in and don't come back", jungles with Elephants, sky high mountains, bamboo forests, subterran cave systems, subterran waterways dug by people 3000 years ago. It is everything you didn't know and gives you the whole of China.

Filming is beautiful and the access to location and people shows that this show is a collaboration between the BBC doing what they do best and Chinese officials doing what they do best.

The series can best be described as a Symphony of China. Strongly recommended before planing a trip to China.

5.0 out of 5 stars BEAUTIFUL, A LOVELY SERIES!!!, 11 Dec 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Wild China [DVD] (DVD)
Well, well, well congratulations to the BBC... They have outdone themselves yet again.
What with the lovely voice over, done by the brilliant Bernard Hill (and who wouldn't recognise that), to the beautiful photography, this really is an outstanding series (and not the rubbish that one of the other reviews put it)... So even though I haven't got it on DVD yet, I am seriously thinking if not for me then for my mum for her Xmas stocking, then I could borrow it once in a while...(MAYBE)

Great series, but for Blu-ray it is not impressive. I couldn't see that the picture quality was any better than a DVD. Not worth the extra in my opinion.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Series but not just wildlife, 13 April 2011

This review is from: Wild China [DVD] (DVD)
An enjoyable DVD giving an interesting perspective on different regions of China. A lot of time is spent on the people rather than just the landscapes and wildlife as the title might have suggested.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well Worth Seeing, 1 Feb 2011
This review is from: Wild China [DVD] (DVD)
Wild China is a wonderful DVD and I would highly recommend it. The photography is stunning and the content most interesting. If you can`t visit China this is the next best thing, but if you are lucky enough to be planning a visit, buy this DVD first.
