4.0 out of 5 stars very good, but 29 Oct. 2009
By eightysicks86 - Published on Amazon.com

Most people break their reviews of this product down in 2 parts, picture and content. I think this dvd has been praised very highly due to both but even more so concerning picture quality. It is extremely popular for "Jaw-dropping" detail, visually.

The content is great and yes, the narration is superb. Sounds like he should be narrating Lord of the Rings or something. Very, very interesting so far. I have viewed a disc and a half so far. I will update when I finish watching. The exploration is fantastic (most shots are by helicopter it seems)and the history is splendid. I am learning so much. It is very much about the history and learning about the world. I love the strange and bizarre creatures that I never knew existed. So far, the animal "hunts" are very tastefully done. I am not a fan of seeing animals suffer (even though it is nature). Just the knowledge and experience alone is well worth this package.

The picture I found to be slightly disappointing. It is recorded in 1080I. Being a Blu-Ray, I expected 1080p. Expect the detail to be exactly like watching this on Hi-def tv broadcasting (on Discovery channel or something). There is some grain here and there, and from what I have been experiencing lately with a lot of Blu-Ray's, is that the detail is subject to light. In dark scenes the picture will look average with some grain and blurriness, meanwhile with scenes of natural sunlight the detail will be incredible. Every now and then there are scenes with great lighting and detail that make me go "Wow". But it is not uniformly throughout the entire dvd. Your not going to be sitting down the whole time with your mouth open. More of like an open-closing sort of thing.

Another thing I noticed was the contrast flickering. In some episodes the contrast seems to go in and out like a pulsing set to every second. I noticed this in dark scenes and found it to be VERY distracting. I haven't checked other reviews for this, but I find this extremely unacceptable.

For what it is worth, it is a good buy.

Viewed with a Sony 1080p lcd tv and slim ps3.

5.0 out of 5 stars PLANET EARTH -WOW!! 12 Jun. 2009
By Tom Gee - Published on Amazon.com

I just recently purchased a Samsung 58 inch plasma TV and the first Blu Ray discs I purchased were the BBC Earth Collection (Planet Earth/Earth:The Biography). This is truly amazing video. The picture quality is unbelieveable and you will find yourself saying "How did they film that?". Everyone in the family plus all your frieds will marvel at these images. The price through Amazon was the best I could find on the web and these multi-disc sets will be watched over and over again. These videos truly allow HD to be all it can be.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing, absolutely breathtaking 25 Sept. 2009
By Garrett Mccutcheon - Published on Amazon.com

This collection contains two of the best nature documentaries the BBC has ever produced. Planet Earth in 1080p is a breathtaking experience, and every time I watch it I notice new things and I am continuously amazed by the power and beauty of nature. David Attenborough is the perfect narrator (much better than Sigourney Weaver on the Discovery edition), and I honestly think there should be a law requiring all nature documentaries to be narrated by him. Earth: The Biography is also a wonderful series, though arguably not as good as Planet Earth. Narrated by Ian Stewart, Earth: The Biography travels around the globe explaining natural phenomena and the complex interplay of geological and natural wonders. Both of these, together, in high definition, are the pinnacle of nature documentaries.
5.0 out of 5 stars Worth Every Dollar and Then Some 10 July 2010

Boy, are we enjoying these programs!
Camera work is absolutely fantastic with slow pans, super high-def clarity, zooms and close-ups. You wonder how in the world did they shoot these scenes. Narration is superb, unhurried and even entertaining.
No doubt this is something to treasure and keep for ages.
If you have the money, do not be hesitant on this purchase.
It is both fun and educational, and that is hard to find these days.
