Stunning footage, poor DVDs
on 30 December 2011
The footage in Frozen Planet is stunning and whilst the series is not really a documentary as it lacks any real attempt to inform, the images are stunning. The series is worth watching for the sense of wonder it invokes. However, some of the footage is actually recycled from 'Life in the Freezer', there is too much focus on 'cute' photogenic animals and a strange reluctance to show death. The DVDs are very poorly mastered with an automatic default to the voice-over menu which takes 5 minutes to switch off. This is annoying and ruins the series.
