this box set of four dvds collect the first thirteen episode series of meerkat manor. this is a wildlife documentary that uses footage from a research project run by cambridge university, who are spending years filming the lives of the whiskers group, a group of meerkats living in south africa.

Each episode runs roughly twenty two minutes, and shows us the trials and tribulations of meerkat life. hunting for food. bringing up the kids. fighting off rival gangs and avoiding birds of prey. among other things.

each meerkat has been given and a name and the narration from bill nighy, plus music that suits the mood of the scene, all adds to the experience and makes it like a soap opera. they all have their own characteristics, from dominate female flower to her partner zaphod, strong dependable male shakespeare, wayward daughter tosca, and the rather paranoid youssarian who seemingly never got over a bump on the head as a youngster.

all this makes them into strong characters, and you will find yourself caring for them and enjoying their antics and aventures over the course of this season.

each episode begins with a short reprise filling in all the details that anyone who hasnt seen the show before would require.

whilst these are very cute creatures they are wild animals. they do eat creepy crawlies. and only one in four of their pups makes it to adulthood. so this isnt all sweetness and light and can be a bit harrowing at times - female meerkats will kill pups of other females on occasion - so it may not be suitable at times for the very young. although they will probably love adventuresome pup columbus, introduced in part eleven.

there are three episodes on each of the first three discs, and four on the fourth.

I bought this, thinking from the Amazon description (i.e. 300 minutes), that it was the full 13 episodes just recorded on 3 discs. It only 22-23 minutes per episode after all. However, on reciving it, it is actually three disks Ep1-3, Ep4-6 and Ep7-9, respectively and no Episodes 10-13. Fortunately, it being an Amazon reseller, it was easy to return it for a refund to get the 4 disk set, which is all 13 episodes, i.e. aproximately 300 minutes and not the approximate 210 minutes of this 3 disk set.

While the programmes themselves are good, I can't give it mire than one star for the misleading description. Plus, the Studio that produces it also incorrectly says that the three disk set is 300 minute and not having taken a photo of the back of the box showing 210 minutes, there is no easy way to get Amazon to update the details.

The first season of Meerkat Manor is a great series, I like especially the meerkat Shakespeare, but it is sad how he comes to an end. But I can recommend this series for sure, because you can learn a lot about the way of living of the Whiskers family, but situated as it is a real life soap. The filming is in a great way and it is narrated by Bill nighy who does it in a great way. Highly recommended

completely addictive! watched these with by boyfriend and neither of us can get enough of these cute critters. they're so full of personality you can't help but fall in love with them and find yourself rooting for them on many occasions. Bill Nighy does a great job of narrating with that incredible and distinct voice of his

As someone else has said, my box set has the last 4 episodes missing. I have episodes 1 to 9, but not 10 to 13.Great series, but why on earth would anyone sell a series without all the episodes? Disappointing.

i bought this set of dvd after catching glimpses of the series on tv and have to say i thought meerkats are really cute and lovable , well i did not realize just how hard life is for them , it was a real eye opener for me , if they are not fighting each other they are being hunted by predators , and then struggling to find food . the natural world can really be very cruel , in saying that i am glad i watched the series and all in all i think i enjoyed it .

The description for this box set is misleading. It is not the complete season 1 and it is not 300 minutes long. The final three episodes are missing, so I'm not quite sure why this partial collection exists. The program itself is amazing. I was riveted each episode. Bill Nighy is a brilliant narrator. I have become fascinated with meerkats, along with millions of others, and can't wait for season two to arrive to see what happens to the Whiskers family.
