Life on Land,
This review is from: David Attenborough's Life On Land - A DVD Encyclopaedia (DVD)
This is one of the best things I have bought, and it was worth every penny!
Six series (Life in the Undergrowth, The Private Life of Plants, Life in Cold Blood, The Life of Birds, The Life of Mammals and The First Eden) make up the set. It then comes with a hardback index, packed with everything in the series and how to find it. I was amazed the moment I opened the book at how much David Attenborough had covered! Each disc also comes with an episode selection to watch full episodes from the series, chapter selections (which are used to create the printed hardback index), category selection and an alphabetical encyclopaedia.
This is a very worthwhile buy! It is thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing to watch, especially after a busy day.
Sir David Attenbourough presents with such admirance of nature that it is contagious and you never want it to end!

A lovely concise and informative review. A warning: The repackaging involves a two-minute "lead in" to every disc which is unnecessarily tiresome if you want to select short extracts from among the episodes. All five "Life..." series are marvellous but many readers may know nothing about "The First Eden". This explores the natural history of the Mediterranean and was unknown to me. It's really good!
