Get this one mate, its newer and as all the extras as the dvd but some people have reported an image problem with i think four episodes and if you have that same problem, all you have to do is write off to the bbc, send the discs and theyll send you replacements promptly

Never understood why they weren't on the original release. Not often you get a boxset with less content than when on TV
#16
Thanks OP, great find and everything worked just as you said
#17
grrr i just said to myself ''no more purchasing for a little while''.
but for £15 thats a great deal, plus those issues with discs 2 and 3 seem to be from one batch only but fingers crossed the exchange will be quick and simple if needed.
#18
will suck if it has have a problem. Already bought the HDDVD version of this, and have bought it again!.

91p quidco too.

I don't mind them as extras, but hated they were part of the programmes. Ruined the magic of it, just so the BBC could pat themselves on the back for 10 minutes every episode.

I shortly registered and the 15% Zavvi discount offer is not available, as previous post - Zavvi have withdrawn from RYT
#24
Yh so, it still works for people who have a code unless I can be proved wrong

It doesn't, just tried it myself with one of my already banked codes.

Expired.
#26
Sucks ok, ill change it. £17.85 is still a good price in comparison to amazon and play. I'm just glad I got my order in before they pulled the code
#27
im a little gutted the code has been withdrawn because iv been waiting for the special edition to come down in prices for months!...... but i have now ordered it from The Hut for £16.95
i have got the normal Blur-ray edition already - The blu-ray transfer is decent but i have read it is better with the special edition. If indeed i have any problems with the discs then as someone suggested i will post them to the bbc for replacements

Is this any better than normal edition ?

seems to be far worse than the original

the SE seems to be a particularly bad transfer

source:- http://forum.blu-ray.com/united-kingdom/150020-planet-earth-special-edition-whats-different-3.html

There is a serious mastering fault with at least four of the episodes, where the contrast/white level has been boosted to insane levels. Many of the shots of snowy landscapes are basically 1/3 nothing but white.

Below are a bunch of shots I took today, comparing the old release (top) to the SE (bottom).


Episode 6: Ice Worlds (on Disc 2)

This thread suggests they dont acknowledge the problem with this edition:-
