But, in the UK, you can only get the dvd version. Actually, this is true of a lot of the BBC productions. You want Bluray? You need to buy it from elsewhere in Europe. In this case, it's the Dutch version.
The discs are the same as they would be from the UK, even the title sequences, you just need to turn off the Dutch subtitles. Only the back of the box is different, but who reads that once you have the disc home?
Don't bother buying the official UK release on DVD. This is glorious Hi-Def. The way the series was mean't to be seen.
The CGI is exemplary and David Attenborough's narration and on screen appearances are superb as always.
A definite five star highly recommended purchase.
Compared to his other documentaries, this 2 part (plus bonus) is less focused on nature footage, but that is to be expected since the focus is on creatures that no longer exist
The programme highlights recent discoveries and theories that tackle the big questions of how and why the first animals evolved into the incredible diversity found in the fossil record and living around us today. Sir David pitches the information at a level that a layperson can grasp, without falling into gross over-simplifications that would raise protests from evolutionary biologists (like me). If you've seen any of his other work, you'll be well aware that he is unmatched for being able to inject a sense of awe and wonder, whatever his subject, and it's no different here; thanks to his trademark enthusiasm, the segments in which he discusses dusty fossils are no less exciting than the clever animations of bizarre extinct species.Read more ›
