Product Description

Product Description

A collection of BBC nature documentaries.

Wild China
(2008), narrated by Bernard Hill, focuses on one of the world's most enigmatic and magnificent countries. The programme delves into the country's vibrant habitats to reveal a land of unbelievable natural complexity. Journey across China, from the glittering peaks of the Himalayas to the barren steppe, the sub-Arctic to the tropical islands, through deserts both searingly hot and mind-numbingly cold and see, in pioneering images, a dazzling array of mysterious, beautiful, wild and rare creatures.

Tilda Swinton narrates Galapagos (2005), which explores the distinctive flora and fauna of the Galapagos archipelago. Charles Darwin's world within itself is the subject of this in-depth programme. The Galapagos Islands are every botanist's Shangri-La: the 13 main islands are actually underwater volcanoes and are situated at the confluence of four oceanic currents. This singular habitat, combined with its isolated location, has given rise to hundreds of varieties of flora and fauna found nowhere else but here.

South Pacific (2009) explores the vast South Pacific ocean and its many islands, giving viewers the opportunity to see beyond the white sandy beaches and palm trees. Both the wildlife and the islander's way of life and rituals are examined, showing how both cope with their remote environment. Highlights include spectacular sights of giant crabs that can open coconuts, undersea volcanos, and the use of super slow motion footage to capture the scale of some of the of the world's biggest waves.

Nature's Great Events (2009) chronicles some of the planet's most spectacular natural events, and shows how these phenomena can transform entire landscapes, drawing in millions of animals and determining their fate. The series also explains how powerful natural forces can trigger chain reactions involving everything from microscopic organisms to entire tracts of rainforest. Events featured in the series include the Pacific salmon run, the greening of the Serengeti, the plankton bloom in the Pacific Northwest, the spring thaw in the Arctic, the flooding of the Okavango Delta and the South Atlantic sardine run.

Galapagos likewise examines the uniques wildlife, flora, fauna of these amazing islands.
Finally Wild China, a detailed look at the amazing diversity of landscape and life in China, rainforests, deserts and Himalayas.

Really really like this. We have also got frozen planet and the life collection so we do love our nature program's. it's a shame David Attenborough isn't narrating throughout all the discs but all four discs are good and it's quite a diverse collection.

The blu ray picture quality is amazing

These four series are superb and look fantastic on blu-ray - BBC natural history at its best. Currently around £25 the set is excellent value though of course prices can change.

The Galapagos and South Pacific documentaries shouldve been done together, they do share a fair bit of footage and Benedict Cumberbatch is a much better voice over than Tilda Swinton, who sounds a bit bored sometimes. But considering the Galapagos are in the South Pacific, and constantly referred to during the South Pacific series, they shouldve just stuck 3 episodes on the end...

Wild China and Natures Great Events are interesting, well filmed and, well... exactly what you'd expect of BBC documentaries.

For close to 20 quid, you get hours of HD quality, educational and well presented information. Well worth it in my opinion and its been a great companion during my sick week of work
