Planet Earth is critically ill but another future is possible if we all decide to write it together. In 200 000 years humans have disrupted the fragile balance on which Earth was living for 4 billion years. Global warming shortage of resources endangered species: humans are jeopardising their own living conditions. By the end of the century the relentless consumption will have exhausted almost all of our planet's natural resources. But it is too late to be pessimistic: we have barely 10 years left to reverse the trend. We need to become aware of our abusive exploitation of Earth's gifts and change our way of life. By giving us these previously unreleased images of over 50 countries as seen from the sky and by sharing his wonder but also his worry Yann Arthus-Bertrand contributes to the rebuilding we all need to start doing together.

Baraka | DVD | (17/09/2001)
from £N/A | Saving you £N/A (N/A%) | RRP
Baraka is a non-narrative visual poem addressing, according to director Ron Fricke, "humanity's relationship with the eternal." The title means "breath of life" or "a blessing" and the film unfolds into a tapestry of global images shot over 13 months in 24 countries, comparable to, but far more ambitious than Koyaanisqatsi (1983) which Fricke also wrote, edited and photographed. Like Bernardo Bertolucci's similarly meditative Little Buddha (1993), Baraka was designed as a powerful audio-visual experience, one of a handful of films made in the 1990s to revive the immensely cinematic 70mm process. Filled with staggeringly beautiful vistas which are striking, rich in detail and immaculately composed, the screen is complemented by an immersive Dolby Digital soundtrack fusing natural sounds with a haunting world music score. (At one point composer Michael Stearns combines Japan's Kodo Drummers, a Scottish bagpipe ensemble and a Tibetan water music orchestra.) Baraka encourages the audience to think or be entranced, and depending on mood and circumstance it can enthral or bore. With its epic, trans-human scale, vast formal grandeur, depersonalised abstraction, startling juxtapositions and avowed ambition to be the ultimate non-verbal film, Fricke has created a visionary experience akin to 2001: A Space Odyssey. On the DVD: Baraka is accurately transferred at the original 70mm theatrical ratio of 2.2:1, not as the packaging says as 2.35:1. The picture quality is superlative, with virtually no flaws and razor-sharp images. The Dolby Digital 5.1 sound is equally outstanding. The extras are presented at 4:3 with letterboxed clips, and being video based offer lower image quality. These special features play for approximately 25 minutes and, apart from the original theatrical trailer, are divided into three sections containing significant overlaps between the material. The "making of" documentary and the collection of to-camera comments from members of the production team are both interesting, but the behind the scenes location filming footage adds little substance. --Gary S Dalkin

from £15.55 | Saving you £4.44 (22.20%) | RRP
Halcyon River Diaries is like no other series on the television on the face of it a charming portrait of life by a typical English river told by award-winning wildlife cameraman Charlie Hamilton James and his wife TV presenter and conservationist Philippa Forrester. But in reality thanks to the challenges of filming with their three young sons is an hilarious mix of wildlife and family life. With much of the humour coming from the unpredictable and chaotic nature of family life each episode is appropriately narrated by comedian and 'Outnumbered' actor Hugh Dennis. From beautifully shot sequences of kingfishers battling in the mating season to tracking otters at night with five year old Gus Halcyon River Diaries is everything you have come to expect from BBC Natural History with so much more. Filmed over 12 months the series features other challenges that many of us can relate to like trying to encourage children away from the TV and computer games and the trials and tribulations of family outings as Charlie and Philippa try to discover with their robust and noisy three boys the shy and secretive wildlife that surrounds them! The result is an hilarious wildlife documentary series made by a family and loved by other families.

'Our World Their World' is a detailed and fascinating educational exploration into the lives of animals that share our planet. As we examine their unique habitats and behaviour we analyse the impact that man has had on the earth's delicate natural system. Animals Of Antarctica Australia and Hawaii In this episode we travel to the bitter cold of Antarctica for an in-depth look at the penguin. It is then a short hop to the warmer climate of Australia to observe the koala wallaby and the remarkable flying fox. We continue our journey to the paradise island of Hawaii with its abundant birdlife. Sharing their habitat with the mongoose and the hawksbill turtle the albatross and honeycreeper are just two of the myriad of birds that call this island home. Animals Of India And Africa We begin episode two by looking squarely into the jaws of a Bengal tiger and her cubs in India. Their daily struggle for survival is compelling viewing. We study the many animals that share their environment including langur monkeys and varieties of antelope and deer. Then it's off to Africa to visit yet another of the big cats the lion. There rainforests waterholes and vast plains provide homes for a multitude of animals including leopards baboons and crocodiles. Animals Of The African Plains Northern Tanzania and the African plains are the background to the third instalment in this series. A herd of roaming elephants and the dust trail of a speeding cheetah are provocative images of Africa and both animals are featured within this DVD. Rhinos various antelope and giraffes coexist in this harsh landscape where predator and prey play a deadly game of survival. This daily routine on the African plains show Mother Nature at her most unforgiving. The Wildlife Of North And South America For the fourth episode we start in the damp humidity of the Amazon rainforest where the various New World monkeys entertain us with their breathtaking stunts of dexterity high above in the leafy canopies. It's then north to the more temperate region of Florida for a meeting with an alligator. We head north once again to find ourselves in the plains of the central United States and experience a run-in with the American badger buffalo and prairie dog. Animals Of North America The fifth and penultimate episode is an all-American affair as we journey through the United States taking in mountains woodlands and the Pacific coast. The Rocky Mountains are home to amongst others the bobcat and the little known pika both are examined in detail. On the Pacific coast we get wet watching the sea otter a particularly friendly and active animal. We then head off to the woodlands and mountains of northwest America for an in-depth look at the racoon and the mountain lion. Wilderness Specialists In the final episode of our series we travel from the mountains of northwest America to the cold of northern Scandinavia putting in a few stops along the way. Land water and air are covered in this programme as we follow the plight of the black bear and mountain goat; wild salmon and river otter; the bald eagle and the snowy owl. We also experience different temperament when we look at the ferocious wolverine and the far more placid lemming.
The Living Planet | DVD | (01/09/2003)
from £13.47 | Saving you £21.52 (61.50%) | RRP
In 1979 David Attenborough presented Life on Earth, the first wildlife blockbuster series, a chronicle of three-and-a-half billion years of natural history. The Living Planet followed five years later, an equally ambitious 12-part documentary which spanned the globe with portraits of each of the major geographical regions which offer home to life. Attenborough demonstrates how even in the most hostile of environments, from the volcanic "Furnaces of the Earth" to "The Frozen World" of mountains and tundra, the Arctic and Antarctic, live maintains a foothold. He takes us to "The Northern Forests", the "Jungle", "Seas of Grass" and "The Baking Deserts", and ever the genial host, details how in all its endless diversity, life is ingeniously suited to its surroundings. With breathtaking imagery we meet our fellow inhabitants, from penguins to polar bears, lions to scorpions, oaks to eagles, and journey on to "The Open Ocean" and the "New Worlds" which mankind itself is rapidly fashioning through ever more radical technological change. The series ends with an impassioned environmental plea which rings even more urgent now than in 1984. The Trials of Life (1990) and The Private Life of Plants (1994) further detail The Living Planet. --Gary S. Dalkin
British Isles: A Natural History | DVD | (29/11/2004)
from £8.44 | Saving you £16.55 (66.20%) | RRP
The BBC's latest lavish natural history series, The British Isles: A Natural History stirred a minor controversy when first aired because its presenter, the ever-affable Alan Titchmarsh, is better known as a gardener (and writer of saucy novels), not an expert on mineralogy, plate tectonics, or prehistoric flora and fauna. Until this programme the presumption had been that a multi-part flagship BBC documentary would be written and presented by an authoritative figure, David Attenborough or Simon Schama for example. For better or worse Titchmarsh has broken the mould. In fact, once past the glossily superficial opening chapter "3 Billion Years in the Making" (essentially a highlights programme of what is to come), Titchmarsh turns out to be an excellent host, addressing the audience in his familiar chatty way and cleverly exploiting his horticultural roots, noting for example how evidence of major geological changes can be found in the most humble plant, wildflower or weed. And unlike his more academic predecessors, he also uses his TV charisma to the full, finding lighthearted ways of imparting otherwise dry information: sampling malt whiskies to explain how water permeates through different types of rock; scoffing platefuls of clotted cream with jam and scones to show how desert conditions millions of years ago gave Devon its fertile soil; or even getting made up as a Neanderthal and strolling down Oxford Street. It's all far more cosy than Attenborough. The director of this eight-part series has clearly been watching Peter Jackson's The Lord of the Rings, as he never misses an opportunity for sweeping helicopter shots of snowy mountain peaks, rugged coastlines or glacial valleys. Combined with some neat computer graphics, the result makes ideal consumption for Sunday evening TV: easy on the eye and none too taxing on the brain, but informative enough to banish any fears of dumbing-down. --Mark Walker
