This BBC natural history crown jewel combines rare action, impossible locations and intimate moments with our planets best-loved, wildest and most elusive creatures. From the highest mountains to the deepest rivers.
Every now and then there's a nature documentary series that just blows my mind away. It hasn't happened for a long time, until i saw this series. It is absolutely STUNNING. If i was to pick the greatest nature documentary series of all time, it is this, hands down. Each episode is brilliant, and uses fabulous aerial photography to show you the animals in the landscapes they live like never before. You get a birds eye view. There is a total of eleven episodes (50 mins each + a 10 min making of feature at the end of each) which is huge, and will have you glued to your TV for hours on end.
This is the "Special Edition 6 Disc Set", the same version of the series i have on DVD. It has 2 extra discs besides the main series DVD's which contain another set of doco's called "Saving Planet Earth", a doco called "Great Planet Earth Moments" which is self explanitry and a Natural World episode as well- "Secrets Of The Maya Underworld". All these programs put together equals around 15 or 16 hours of viewing.
As for the main series itself, what can i say? You won't be disappointed. It is full of tense moments, but also caring ones showing the light sides of nature. Each episode focuses on a certain habitat (eg "Jungles" and "Shallow Seas"). The footage is from every continent, and has a staggering number of animals. Rare never before seen creatures are also a highlight, like the Snow Leopard in the "Mountains" episode. The music used in the series is also great, i myself had to get the mp3 files of them. My favorite bit of music has to be the melody often played in the "From Pole To Pole" episode (can be heard just before the wolf hunt and also when showing the hippo walking through the Okavango Delta). On the soundtrack, this bit of music is in "Elephants In The Okavango" and comes in at 1:14. The other soundtracks are great also (i really liked "The Lion And The Oryx" and "Desert Winds - The Locusts").
After you've seen the whole series, you will want to watch it all over again. There's so much content to keep you busy for weeks. For the BEST look at nature and the wonderful animals on our planet, i HIGHLY RECOMMEND this BBC series. It's far better than "Life" (another BBC doco series, basically the same format, but not as good). Even non-doco lovers enjoy it, my dad is a footy fan but kept wanting to see more of this series. There's the proof.
