The films, as recorded are not over-long. As an academic in natural science myself; I found the series both stimulating and thought-provoking. The quality of the cinematography was excellent. Blu-Ray(R) image-processing, combined with HDMI 'Plug-n-Play(R)' made this unforgettable. A timely warning to those people still obsessed with "Life in the Fast Lane"!

As someone who owns a fairly large Blu Ray collection including many documentaries, I was totally disappointed with this offering from the BBC.

The actual content is 1st class but if you also are after stunning High Definition this is not for you.

I was a little stunned just how poor the quality is, soft, fuzzy and smeary in places are three ways to describe it. It looks no more then upscaled SD and I wonder just how much was actually filmed on HD cameras. Some of the Ice scene were very poor and demonstrate the poor quality of the filming.

If you are expecting High definition similar to the Life Blu ray box set you will be totally disappointed, thankfully I bought this when it was in Amazons cheap Blu ray offerings so feel I have not wasted too much money.

If super crisp HD is not the most important factor when purchasing a Blu ray then you may be happy with this but if like me you love your HD crisp and clean then you might want to avoid.

A visually stunning and informative series of programmes about planet Earth from past to present. A real pleasure to watch. Definitely the best Blue ray dvd i bought so far.

one important thing: the 2 star review for this is based on a mistake. there really is a monotonous female commentary but you can switch it off. it is meant for people with impaired vision.

now to my review:
prior to seeing this i watched the planet earth series so i was quite critical whether any other bluray-documentary could live up to attenboroughs work.
so after a while i bought Earth and after another while i started to watch it (still critical).
at first i was a little distracted by iain stewarts scottish accent since i never heard this accent before due to english not beeing my native language. however, the accent really grew on me.
after finishing the first episode i was convinced that this was worth buying but after finishing all the episodes i know now that this is not just good - this is one of the best there is!
the information content is huge and iain stewart is a great narrator and "host".
the picture is clear and 90% of the time in HD.

so if you are just as critical as i was whether to buy this or not believe me - this is absolutely worth watching.

Finally a documentary about the big picture and not just filled with a variation of animals. This makes buying an expensive plasma all worthed.
Just can't get enough of it..

I loved this series when it was originally aired on the Beeb - seeing it again on Blu-Ray has really enriched my experience. The colour and quality of the images are truly facinating - this is what buying Blu-Ray and a big HD TV is all about!!!

The series is supurb, Dr Iain Stewart managed to get across some serious environmental messages in a visually impactful, non-patrinoising way....which made me feel like I should "get out there and make a difference" by the end. Would certainly recommend!
