5.0 out of 5 stars Quick Summary of Box Set Contents
This box set is basically a bundle of two Blu-Ray packages.

Life [Blu-ray][Region Free] - 4x BD50 Blu-Ray disks, approx 585 mins runtime. The disks and the packaging of Life in this box set are identical to the standalone product.

Planet Earth: Complete BBC Series [Blu-ray] - 5x BD25 Blu-Ray disks, approx 550 mins runtime. The disks are identical...

3.0 out of 5 stars Planet Earth did play on my PS3 but Life did not play. why??
I bought the "Planet Earth/Life" combo blu-ray. All of "Planet Earth" blu-ray disks played normally on my PS3, but Non of "Life" played. It only played the 1st part until where it's about to show the menu. It played the intro, blu-ray... This happened on all 4 blu-ray disks of Life.
Anybody experienced this? Amazon???
All my other ordered blu-ray movies played...

This review is from: Planet Earth & Life Box Set [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
This box set is basically a bundle of two Blu-Ray packages.

Life [Blu-ray][Region Free] - 4x BD50 Blu-Ray disks, approx 585 mins runtime. The disks and the packaging of Life in this box set are identical to the standalone product.

Planet Earth: Complete BBC Series [Blu-ray] - 5x BD25 Blu-Ray disks, approx 550 mins runtime. The disks are identical to the standalone product, but in boring blue packaging (as opposed to the beautiful fold-open packaging for the standalone product).

There are no DVD disks in this box set (despite the "DVD Video" logo printed on the bottom-right of the outer cardboard box).

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning double pack to leave you speachless, 5 Jan 2010

It's likely you've seen at least some episodes of the BBC's groundbreaking documentaries; Life and Planet Earth on TV. However, watching them on Blu-Ray is a whole new experience and what a jaw-dropping spectacle it is. Both video and audio are outstanding, it's easily one of the best Blu-Ray transfers available, I'd put it up there with Blade Runner or Star Trek and consider it reference quality.

The natural world has never been filmed in such detail, from the vast panoramics of the Himalayas to the darkest depths of the ocean, viewing land marks from space to near microscopic invertebrates, these documentaries have got it all covered.

The score is a perfect complement to what's happening onscreen and always adds to the atmosphere, whether it's raising the pulse during an explosive chase or stiring emotions to convey many epic and virtigo-inducing panning shots.

It's worth noting I own Planet Earth on DVD and this Blu-Ray set is superior in every way bar one; you don't get the 'making of' documentaries at the end of each episode. They really should have included these, even if they were only standard definition but forget about them, the trade off is more than worth it. This set will entertain, enthral and educate you in equal measure - simply put - this deserves to be in everyone's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Treasure, 4 Oct 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Planet Earth & Life Box Set [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
Every self respecting person should own a copy of this set. As more and more of the earth is developed, there may come a time when we have to resort to series such as these to appreciate how amazing the earth is/was. If we do come to such a time, thank the heavens that you have Sir David Attenborough narrating this to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars When Blu ray shines, 14 Mar 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Planet Earth & Life Box Set [Blu-ray] [Region Free] (Blu-ray)
This compilation shows the clear benefits of Blu ray. The whole series (both of them) are stunning in hi def. The cost of the two sets in this compilation represents great value for money. If you like Natural History and the eminent narration of David Attenborough then you won't be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars Dribblingly good., 7 Jan 2011

Honestly: I bought these to show off a new telly/bluray combo. Perfect. The picture is what HD is all about. The series is really addictive. It still leaves my wide-mouthed and dribbling. This sets the benchmark for HD and nature. The only reason to pass is the risk it will show up everything else you watch as paler in comparison.

Good watch. The film quality could be better considering it is blu-ray. Still worth the price, however could have been better.
