Product Description

Product Description

An amazing journey through the wildest, most charismatic landscape in the world – the Great Rift, the cradle of mankind and home to the greatest concentration of wildlife on Earth.

Visible from space, The Great Rift runs for thousands of miles; from majestic, snow-capped Mount Kilimanjaro to the hustle and bustle of the Red Sea's coral reefs. This is the wildest, most charismatic landscape in the world, spanning erupting volcanoes, forest-clad mountains, spectacular valleys, rich grasslands, vast lakes and mighty rivers – there is no greater spectacle of wildlife on Earth.

We discover the volcanic home of the Gelada Baboon and rare Ethiopian wolf; the misty Virunga Mountains, last refuge of the mountain gorilla; deep freshwater lakes each with its own unique species; shallow caustic soda lakes supporting hundreds of thousands of flamingos; and a sea world rich with giant corals and shoals of colourful fish.

In the great savannahs of the Serengeti and eastern Uganda, the richness of the landscape draws vast herds of zebra, wildebeest, elephant, cheetah and lion. And where grassland meets forest, we find chimpanzees whose lives mirror those of the first humans on earth. Great Rift features new discoveries, dramatic encounters and exciting animal behaviour and reveals a landscape that continues to surprise us.

Living in South Africa just makes one enjoy this so much more. You have to watch this in Blu ray, the detail is absolutely brilliant. It runs for 180 minutes and you may think that you will want to watch this one episode at a time - forget it. Once you start you will not be able to hit the stop button. Fantastic cinematography, the narration is superb and the animals really come to live in 1080 HD. I truly recommend this one.

Probably one of the best wildlife DVDs I have seen in recent years. The photography is stunning,not only the wildlife but the surrounding landscapes, all are captured in breathtaking film. Both educational and informative I would rate the entertainment value of this DVD as five star. The Great Rift is a Great Work.

Another astonishingly beautiful production from the BBC NHU. Solid camera-work delivers awe-inspiring HD images.
Very diverse wildlife, incredible landscapes and a good narrative.
I you ever plan on going to see Africa, don't buy this Blu-Ray disc, because you're sold!

Beautiful panoramic views, in my opinion the best footage of the film. Great detail of the hair of gorillas under the rain, and amazing colours of coral reefs.

I bought this blu ray via internet and delivery was excellent by Amazon. The blu ray picture quality is amazing on my LG LED TV and Panasonic blu ray player. This disc contains three episodes over 180 minutes and details are absolutely stunning.Very well narrated and well presented.

Another landmark natural history offering from the Been. This is TV that demonstrates the value for money of the licence fee.Hugh Quarshie delivers good commentary as an alternative to the usually ubiquitous Attenborough.
