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.

There rainforests waterholes and vast plains provide homes for a multitude of animals including leopards baboons and crocodiles.

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.

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.

  • Planet Earth [HD DVD] Planet Earth | HD DVD | (12/11/2007) from £9.95  |  Saving you £1.00 (2.00%)  |  RRP £49.99

    As befits the BBC's reputation for producing some of the world's best nature documentaries, Planet Earth is an epic travelogue, focussing on different ecologies and the unique animals that inhabit them. Once again, Sir David Attenborough provides the narration, as the cameras fly across the surface of the earth, zooming in to give us a bug's eye view one minute, zooming out to give us an eagle's perspective the next. The BBC's cameramen filmed more than 200 locations, resulting in some truly spectacular footage, much of which has never before been seen--such as the rare sight of an endangered snow leopard hunting in the Himalayas, or great white sharks leaping from the water as they hunt. The creators of Planet Earth endured some of the world's most hostile environments, from the deepest ocean depths to an Antarctic blizzard to a fetid, cockroach- and bat-infested cave, just to grab a few moments of film; it's worth watching the "Making of" shorts that accompany each episode, in order to see just what lengths they had to go to. The three extra episodes here--Planet Earth: The Future--provide a sobering finale, as Sir David practically pleads with viewers to cherish the animals that we share this planet with, before it's too late. --Ted Kord

  • Baraka [1993] Baraka | DVD | (17/09/2001) from £N/A  |  Saving you £N/A (N/A%)  |  RRP £19.99

    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

  • Space [2001] Space | DVD | (03/12/2001) from £7.81  |  Saving you £12.18 (60.90%)  |  RRP £19.99

    Space is a visually impressive six-part popular science series from the BBC that follows their runaway successes Walking with Dinosaurs and The Planets into the realm of lavish computer animation. In a stroke of inspired casting Jurassic Park's Sam Neill (no stranger to acting alongside CGI effects) is our earthbound anchor, and he takes the viewer on journeys across the universe in each half-hour segment, thanks to some nifty special effects. Like Carl Sagan's pioneering Cosmos from 1980, Space delves in to the mysteries of how stars and planets were created; but unlike Sagan's visionary and optimistic view of cosmic wonders, Space is astronomy for the Age of Anxiety, revealing with terrifying clarity and in graphic detail how fortunate we are to exist at all, and how it could all end at any moment as a result of space-bound monsters like rogue comets and asteroids that might crash into our planet; or, the worst horror of the universe, wandering black holes that could tear our sun apart. Even if we survive these implacable cosmic forces bent on our destruction, viewers will not be reassured to be told that the sun is doomed anyway, and its inevitable death will swallow our planet whole (but not before burning it to a crisp first). Finally, the series finds cause for faint optimism with Star Trek-style speculations on the development of Ion-drive and solar-powered spaceships, terraforming new worlds and wormhole technology that might, just might, allow humanity to escape from a doomed Earth and seek refuge somewhere else in the galaxy. A series that sheds light on both the secrets of the universe and, implicitly, the anxious state of our new millennial society, Space is a compelling combination of popular astronomy and really, really scary cosmology. The handsomely illustrated companion book is lucidly written by astronomer John Gribbin. --Mark Walker

    THE KING’S SHIPS 1500 - 1599 The story begins with the creation of a Royal Navy under orders of King Henry VIII with ships such as GREAT HARRY and the MARY ROSE and continues through the daring exploits of Sir Francis Drake’s GOLDEN HINDE and the revolutionary innovations of John Hawkins’ race-built Galleons. Finally the climatic showdown with Spain’s Invincible Armada in 1588 laid the groundwork for Britannia's Rule of the Seas in the years to come. WOODEN WALLS 1600 - 1805 The 17th century saw Britain’s war efforts aided by Samuel Pepys’ codification of naval tactics in “The Fighting Instructions” which transformed naval battles from uncontrollable melees into linear chess games on water. A little-known Scottish landlubber named John Clerk further stimulated naval tactics and when Admiral Horatio Nelson took the helm of HMS VICTORY at the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 Britain’s mastery of the waves was re-established. THE SUN NEVER SETS 1806 – PRESENT Wooden Walls were soon replaced by iron and steel. When the super-ship DREADNOUGHT was launched in 1906 it sparked a naval arms race with Germany that culminated with the gigantic showdown at Jutland during WWI. After the loss of HMS Hood Churchill’s rallying cry “Sink The Bismarck!” and the successful pursuit of the GRAF SPEE turned the tide of WWII. The Falklands War in 1982 once again demonstrated the continuing resolve and effectiveness of the Royal navy.
