If you have even a passing fascination for Australia, then this is for you. It's incredibly well shot and is a rewarding experience in high definition. If only it was six or seven hours long and covered even more of the outback and coastline! It all looks so stunning and despite the voice-over, it's a great purchase. And on top of that I got this from Amazon for ten pounds less than what I almost paid just an hour earlier in town. As for the voice-over, I can only assume he wasn't even looking at the screen when he read his lines and had been soundly asleep before someone woke him up and handed him the script. Why do so many of these IMAX (or documentaries in general) feature so many bland, bored droners? I've played this BluRay a few times with subtitles instead. Makes me realise just how good David Attenborough is. But despite that, it's such a brilliantly filmed crystal-clear disc it's well worth having.

A good documentary which gives glimpses of Australia's best. Contains some spectacular views of Australian landscape. The only downside is the commentary. It is very passive and boring. But that wouldn't stop one from enjoying the film, even with audio on mute!

DO NOT BUY I would of been dissapointed with this if it had come as a freebie in the papers , nothing like the other blue ray films I have bought to see the rest of the natuaral word from the comfort of my living room. This is minus one star or more in every respect. No wonder its cheap, please dont bother even if its free in the papers
