5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime BBC Blu Ray Nature
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...

3.0 out of 5 stars Stunning Scenery, Amazing Animals, Melodramatic Music
Until I saw this documentary, my impressions of Yellowstone Park had been formed by Yogi Bear.
The Yellowstone DVD, is an eye-opener, even to an avid David Attenborough fan like me. An elk out-witting the wolves; a coyote stealing the otters' trout; a fox catching a mouse through six feet of snow, all beautifully filmed against an incredible backdrop.
The DVD...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow, 27 Mar 2009
This review is from: Yellowstone [DVD] (DVD)
I agree with the review above, a truly spectacular series, although a little imprecise with the commentary concerning the wolves, but i really enjoyed the 'yellowstone people', especially the snow shoveler. i thought it was a delightful end and didn't detract in any way

5.0 out of 5 stars YELLOW STONE, 11 Feb 2012

This review is from: Yellowstone [DVD] (DVD)
The images on this disc are breathtakingly beautiful : kaleidescopes of colour against snow or scorched earth : and sufficient in themselves to ignite the senses without any other attractions.

But in addition to the unique pictures the DVD has a wonderful narrator to help you through a year's calendar as the seasons shape the movements of birds, fish, animals with their cubs, and thiunderous waterfalls, geysers : all part of the Yellowstone National Park's unpredictable hostile wilderness.

As you lie back beside a a warm HOME fire, you can witness NATURE's fires littering the ground around black burned trees with new seeds. You can watch the zoological spectacle of our fellow creatures struggling to survive their harsh environment, clothed in an eiderdown of snow embroided with dazzling flower buds.

Don't miss this Amazon passport to this wild volvcanic crater. "Old Faithful" is ever poised to thwart the efforts of "Geyser Gazers" to predict the ever-changing timetable of water eruptions which reach toward the heavens with mighty roars of freedom.

This review is from: Yellowstone [DVD] (DVD)
An excellent DVD and a typical BBC world class production. The camera work, research, music and narration are very good. You are taken on a journey to the world's first national park to discover the flora and fauna. The home of the bison, grizzly bear and the wolf where they struggle to survive in adverse climatic conditions generated by formation by the towering mountains on all sides. The geyser watchers study the thermal effects in the worlds most extensive thermal area.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yellowstone, 25 Jun 2011
This review is from: Yellowstone [DVD] (DVD)
This is every bit as good a documentary as we have come to expect from the BBC. The filming, script and narration are excellent and it provides a captivating overview of this magnificent national park as the seasons rotate. The personal stories of some of the people who work within Yellowstone are a bonus. This is highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BBC raises the bar again, 8 Oct 2010
This review is from: Yellowstone [DVD] (DVD)
If you thought Yellowstone Park was all about Yogi Bear, think again! This is BBC natural history film-making at its subtle and magnificent best. It sets a gold standard for TV documentaries and is unmissable. The footage is not only gorgeous, but the editing and storytelling is also superb - the setting of music in the section about otters in the snow is just sublime. Whereas Planet Earth was romantic and sweeping, this is never overblown, but is quiet and understated, a film which simply gives space for the landscape itself to reveal its awe-inspiring beauty. As an added bonus, the behind-the-scenes tales of film-makers and park staff are fascinating. You will not be disappointed with this purchase, which rewards repeat viewing.

I remember watching this series on the BBC and when I saw it was available on Blu-Ray I had to buy it.

The footage was excellent in the TV series, but in high definition it is truly outstanding. You really get a feel for Yellowstone in all its varied seasons, but the Winter was my favourite - all that snow!

Highly recommended to all those who like documentaries.

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb portrait of a magical place, 30 Mar 2009

This review is from: Yellowstone [DVD] (DVD)
YELLOWSTONE recently aired on the BBC, consisting of three epsiodes beginning with winter, going on into summer and then fianlly finishing with autumn. Each episode, which lasts for 50 minutes, is then followed by a 10 minute short film looking at the lives of "Yellowstone People", the people who live and work there.
For any fan of nature, this series was just fantastic. Absolutely superb camera work which captured the harsh, sometimes delicate beauty of Yellowstone. Never before have I been so inspired by a documentary to make it an ambition of mine to travel to a place and experience it for myself.
Bravo to the BBC - they have done justice to one of the most magical places on earth. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy For The Content, Stay For The Quality......., 3 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Since getting a Blu Ray I have to confess that the constant stream of 'Blu Rays' which are just converted old standard DVDs is depressing.

Yellowstone is one of those Blu Rays you need in your collection not just because you like the programme BUT because it's one of those discs you can pop into the player for disbelievers (like I was) who thought Blu Ray was just another way to get you to buy all your old DVDs again. The sound and picture quality is eye popping.

Throw into the mix one of the BEST documentaries of recent years and you have a gem of a disc. Watched the original series on TV but the Blu Ray opens up the whole thing yet again.

Don't waste time reading the reviews - this is a top rated Blu Ray. GET IT>
