From Amazon.co.uk

An epic, eight-part series that took five years to complete, The Blue Planet firmly re-establishes the BBC as the world's pre-eminent producer of top quality nature documentaries. Exploring every aspect of marine ecosystems, from coastal marshes to deep-sea trenches and from polar waters to tropical reefs, The Blue Planet is thorough and informative, yet never less than thrilling.

Sir David Attenborough is one of the most well-respected (and well-known) personalities in the field of nature programmes and his narration is flawless as he educates and inspires without patronising his audience or anthropomorphising his subjects. Spectacular camera work (of a standard not seen since the BBC's classic Life on Earth series) captures images of a fascinating world rarely seen by human eyes--in fact, in several instances, the subjects and behaviours filmed for this series have never been witnessed before, let alone caught on camera. This is particularly apparent on the series highlight, "The Deep" (Programme 2), where film crews discovered two new species in the depths of the ocean: a grotesque fish named the Hairy Angler and a fantastic, pink octopus-like creature, which is so new that it remains unnamed (but was nicknamed "Dumbo"). Both are testament to the fact that, although oceans cover two-thirds of the Earth, we know less about them than we do the moon. It is proof that, to us land-dwellers, much of our Blue Planet is alien indeed. A handsomely illustrated companion book is also available. -- Robert Burrow

Only few people i know of, can teach you hundreds of things in a matter of hours without in anyway causing you to lose interest if even for a short minute. David Attenborough is without doubt one of these people, and if anything, your interest will more likely grow as the series continues.
The most famous naturalist today shows us scenes that one would only expect to come from the minds of fantasy and sci-fi writers. Aliens and dragons are in many ways a close description of some of the animals portrayed in this series. The sights and sounds of the footage used will humour, shock, dazzle and enthrall you at the least.
In no way has the ocean ever been so well explored and explained and undoubtebly it will be many years before this series is even rivalled.
Eight one-hour long episodes will show you five years worth of research and filming in some of the most desolate places on earth, whether from the cold plains of the antarctic or the deep canyons of the atlantic more than 3 miles beneath the surface.
The first episode gives you a basic introduction to the ocean and all that live in it. Thrilling action scenes for instance as you see a pod of dolphins, hundreds of shrarks and thousands of sea birds hunt in unison to catch an enormous shole of sardine.
The second will take you were only a handful of people have been before, the deep. Here is where you will meet the strangest possible creatures, and most beautiful(or horrid).
The third concentrates on the open ocean. Only here do you get a real impression on how big it really is. Here you see a schole, thousands of fish strong be reduced to nothing by several examples of the countless predators of the sea.

The "Blue Planet" DVD-set is a study of the worlds' oceans narrated by David Attenborough, and with some of most awe-inspiring and weird sights I've ever seen in a nature documentary. It takes underwater-filming to a new level. The time and money they must have spent on this is unthinkable, but well worth it.
The 8-episode DVD is worth buying even for just two of the episodes: the "deep sea" episode, and the "open ocean" episode. The "deep sea" one looks at what happens right at the bottom of the deep ocean. It is spooky in the extreme - almost like looking at another planet. By far the best and most interesting deep filming I've watched. And the "open ocean" episode looks at what happens nearer the surface, but far away from shore - in the open oceans that cover two-thirds of our planet's surface. It is quite a savage episode in many ways - there is a lot of mass predation in the open seas. I won't say any more, I'll let you find out for yourself when you watch it.
It's a great vote of confidence for this DVD release that I bought it despite having already seen most of the episodes on TV.
The Blue Planet DVD-set is not only educational, it will fire your imagination. A world-beater documentary.

I am just about to order the DVD having just finished watching a recording of the programs which aired on tv. All due respect to anyone who has previously reviewed this, but words are totally inadequate to describe the magnificence of the series. The content, it goes without saying, is 1000% fascinating, but the photography is beyond breathtaking. Half way through the section titled "The Deep" I realized that I was watching with my mouth hanging open - literally, not a turn of phrase! Watching one of the "Making Waves" segments I wanted to cry, realizing the dedication, patience, professionalism and talent of the people involved in making this series. Five stars are not enough. This is one of those rare creations which is just totally off the scale.

This is series is one of the BBC's true documentary epics. It was obviously filmed over many years, and across all the world's oceans and was clearly underpinned by a substantial budget and great expertise and commitment.
Whilst the astute viewer may notice that some of the footage used in the series originates in early Attenborough programmes, that hardly detracts from the power and quality of the imagery. Some of the most spectacular and awe-inspiring footage ever captured of the natural world can be seen on these discs! In addition, the sheer sense of discovery and natural voyeurism that the viewer can get from these discs is immense.
Like all of the BBC's great nature documentaries this series is built on superb photography and editing. The patience and dedication that was necessary to capture many of the scenes in this series will be appreciated upon first viewing. It is just compelling!
Blue Planet has been lovingly crafted and is a homage to the oceans of the world and their often teeming, beautiful, or breath taking inhabitants. It also serves as a testimony to Attenborough and the BBC in their joint commitment to bring the glory and drama of the natural world into our living rooms. Arguably, together they have done more than other association to make us conscious of the richness of our biological world, and its splendid behavioural diversity and complexity.
For anyone who has ever felt awe or fascination watching life in or on the oceans, then this series will prove deeply satisfactory: you can rely on this production to reward the depths of your oceanic curiousity! :)
