It is hard to summarise this immense production in just a few words. After watching this series, my perception of the world has changed. This series is a must for any fan of the great David Attenborough, and a must for anyone who watched the Blue Planet series, as this builds on the style and lushness of its 2001 predecessor.
From the edges of perception, daring and intrepid film crews, camera men, pilots, divers and explorers have gone to the most extraordinary and breathtaking parts of our world, and have contributed heavily to this monumentally vast work. It is a treat for anyone who has ever wondered what is out there. Buy it, watch it; its the most amazing nature series ever made. Essential.

This a a stunning box set, fantastic picture. Would easily get 5 stars for the first 4 DVDs but the 5th disc is clips from the other 4 with them talking over it, so only 4 stars im afraid.

This is possibly by far the best DVD boxset that I have ever purchased.

The detail and quality of all the photography is just stunning.

Well worth the watch, again and again.

  Breathtaking

Truly the most stunningly beautiful and amazing camerawork of any series ever. Awesome in the truest sense of the word. The dedication of the camera teams results in this absolute masterpiece. Extremely high quality in every aspect.

Absolutely amazing series that can be watched again and again. I must of watched each episode 10 times each now and it still amazes me.

A fantastic series all shot in HD which is why the quality holds up so well on DVD, even so I bought the HDDVD version from the US, which does have David Attenborough narrating it not Sigorny Weaver as mentioned by the previous reviewer, it has none of the extras though.

Where there is lots of detail the HD version clearly wins, however at other times there is little to choose, the HD version does suffer from the frame judder prevalent with HD material during medium to fast pans.

I suggest buying this SD version, get the HD version only if you must have the best picture detail possible.

I was lucky enough to get this for Christmas and it is truly amazing, so well made and presented in almost HD quality with the voice of god; David Attenborough narrating it, imagine how bad the Americans have it with Sigorny Weaver doing thiers ! there are not really any extras as each episode has it's own making of bit at the end and the picture is not quiet HD, play it on an upscaling DVD player and it is as near as it can be, so so good in every way
