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.
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.
Just can't get enough of it..
If you like spectacular scenery and brilliant photgraphy, then this DVD is for you. Not only that but the series gives the viewer a very good understanding of how natural forces have shaped our world. Can thouroughly recommend this disc
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!
