    Fantastic action, amazing footage, beautiful landscapes and some weird and rare animals. It feels like you are watching a film filled with special effects but this is all real. Filmed with specialist photography and a narrative from David Atenborough, this series provides you with a unique look into the bio-diversity that surrounds us. Expect an explosion for the senses that will give you a glimpse of how magnificent the earth we live on really is and a sense of how small we are considering the impact that we have on the environment. I can promise you that this is a journey you won't forget easily and will have you returning to watch again and again. Quite simply - stunning.

    Watching Planet Earth is a rejuvinating experience showing us just how beautiful the world we are destroying is.
    The photography is incredible and the environments, phenomena and organisms it shows varied and spectacular. David Attenborough's voice, as if you needed telling, is soothing as he dispenses libraries worth of interesting information. All in all both a wonderfully entertaining and educational watch.
    These DVDs are endlessly watchable and perfect for both adults and children - they are my kids' favourite watch, and among mine too. If you saw it on telly then you know what I mean, if you didn't then I recommend you give it a try. You won't be disapointed.

The makers of The Blue Planet present the epic story of life on Earth. Five years in production, over 2000 days in the field, using 40 cameramen filming across 200 locations, this is the ultimate portrait of our planet. A stunning television experience that combines rare action, unimaginable scale, impossible locations and intimate moments with our planet's best-loved, wildest and most elusive creatures. From the highest mountains to the deepest rivers, this blockbuster series takes you on an unforgettable journey through the challenging seasons and the daily struggle for survival in Earth's most extreme habitats. Using a budget of unprecedented proportions, photography and unique, specially developed filming techniques, Planet Earth takes you to places you have never seen before, to experience sights and sounds you may never experience again

The latest David Attenborough nature documentary series, shot in HD. This ambitious 2006 series, described as 'the definitive look at the diversity of our planet' was the first ever to be filmed entirely in high definition. Every episode but the first one looks at one of the Earth's natural habitats and examines its local features, together with the breadth of fauna found there. While filming it, the crew caught several firsts - places and animals never before caught on camera. The fact that it was co-funded by Discovery Channel, BBC and Japan's NHK, took 5 years to make and was shot in over 200 locations is apparent and the series is everything you'd expect from Sir David Attenborough and his team if they were unconstrained by budget or practicality.
