The BBC have done it again! If like me you can't get enough of the 'Planet Earth' box set in HD then you MUST buy this. The photography as you'd expect is at times simply breathtaking and apart from the obvious stars of the show being the animals themselves, special mention must go to the camera crew and production team for creating another masterpiece. The icing on the cake is of course Mr Attenborough's narration. Like most people I've grown up watching his programs over the last 30 years and for me no nature documentary is complete without it being presented or narrated by the great man himself - simple as that. The main reason for me upgrading to HD a few years ago was to be able to watch programmes such as this in HD. This DVD and other recent BBC releases have proved to be justification enough (if only the earlier Attenborough films were remastered into HD - here's hoping). If you don't own a Blu-Ray player already and you like nature documentaries, buy one now you won't be dissapointed :-)
Highly enjoyable for all ages. I would have found the price tag worth it simply for the laugh-out-loud sight of a bear, treading water and trying to kick a fish to the shallows. That's only one of the many, many scenes to enjoy. The cimematography is brilliant, the stories gripping, and the animals fantastic. Kudos to the BBC. If you like nature documentaries, don't even think about it. Get it.
