5.0 out of 5 stars Visual feast matched by accompanying narration, 6 Mar. 2005
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Blue Planet - 3 DVD Box Set [2001] (DVD)
This is series is one of the BBC's true documentary epics. It was obviously filmed over many years, and across all the world's oceans and was clearly underpinned by a substantial budget and great expertise and commitment.
Whilst the astute viewer may notice that some of the footage used in the series originates in early Attenborough programmes, that hardly detracts from the power and quality of the imagery. Some of the most spectacular and awe-inspiring footage ever captured of the natural world can be seen on these discs! In addition, the sheer sense of discovery and natural voyeurism that the viewer can get from these discs is immense.
Like all of the BBC's great nature documentaries this series is built on superb photography and editing. The patience and dedication that was necessary to capture many of the scenes in this series will be appreciated upon first viewing. It is just compelling!
Blue Planet has been lovingly crafted and is a homage to the oceans of the world and their often teeming, beautiful, or breath taking inhabitants. It also serves as a testimony to Attenborough and the BBC in their joint commitment to bring the glory and drama of the natural world into our living rooms. Arguably, together they have done more than other association to make us conscious of the richness of our biological world, and its splendid behavioural diversity and complexity.
For anyone who has ever felt awe or fascination watching life in or on the oceans, then this series will prove deeply satisfactory: you can rely on this production to reward the depths of your oceanic curiousity! :)
