  The BBC: Best Nature Documentaries in the World

| | See all drlowdon's reviews (468)

When it comes to nature documentaries this Planet Earth box set is once again proof that nobody does it better than the BBC. Many years in the making the series takes in locations as diverse as the jungles of South America to the Antarctic.

Every episode is beautifully shot and narrated by the legendary David Attenborough providing truly fascinating insights into the weird and wonderful creatures that inhabit every part of Planet Earth.

Thank you planet Earth. This dvd is incredible and a must-have for every nature documentary fanatic. There is no place on our planet where the crew has not been filming and the shots are really stunning. The documentary does not go into detail too much, so that you will not get bored for even the slightest second. I dare to say that David is better than ever and sometimes I just felt like watching Lord of the Rings, because of the great images and his beautiful voice. Planet earth shows us how lovely but vulnerable our planet is, and inspired me to look at nature in a totally different way. Finally my complements to the crew, who are nothing but true professionals.

  Mother Nature At Its Best

Dave has been working hard capturing this animal imagery, at a tenner this is an absolute steal. Just got a 42" plasma tv and watched it again, the landscape scenes were breath taking 2nd 3rd 4th time of viewing! I would agree with other comments, 'The Blue Planet' is also a must buy if you like this box set.

This boxset is sensational. The lenghts that the team behind this boxsets must have went too, to get some of them shots is staggering. Amazing images and sensational commentary from David Attenborough! And at that price it is a bargain. A must have!

This box set should be compulsary viewing for everybody,it is that good.some of the imagery is jaw-dropping,awe-inspiring brilliance and there are another couple of moments which are shocking (lions and chimps) which leave you totally amazed at how diverse and surprising our fellow planet earth dwellers can be..5/5 doesnt do this series justice.buy it!!!!!!!

Planet Earth (2006) - *****
Fantastic camera work, wonderful glossy look soaked in class, as always - superb narration from David Attenborough. It is impossible to sing the praises of this monumental achievement in wildlife documentation enough. Each glorious eleven episodes has something that will surprise, entertain, astound or shock you. Whether it's the now world famous footage of a snow leopard, a great white shark leaping from the ocean surface and snatching an unsuspecting prey in it's mouth or the simple beauty of superb scenery, ranging from craggy mountains, lush jungles and the dark abyss of the deep ocean. Educational programming has never been more spectacular.

me and my mate were going on about how much of a legend david atenborough is and how detailed and soothing his programs are..he bought this box set and we watched the first episode it was first class and theres so many episodes focussing on different animals. i sound like im 60 yet only 25 but after youve partied hard on a weekend love a bit of the big atten on a sunday chill out to a must have.
