Its hard to rain too many superlatives on The Blue Planet, surely one of the finest and most fascinating nature documentaries ever made. But nonetheless, were going to try.

Long in the making, the idea behind the show was to, using some cutting-edge technology, film previously unseen areas of the ocean, and to investigate life beneath the waves. And in doing so, it pretty much encompasses the full spectrum of creature size. From the staggering, gigantic whale of the first episode, through the miniscule life thats documented as the programme progresses, its a jaw-dropping experience.

Its also a very, very accessible one. Thanks to a diligent, warm narrative from Sir David Attenborough, theres plenty of fact married up to the sheer spectacle of The Blue Planet, although in many ways the stunning photography almost needs no accompaniment. Its timeless work, too, with immense rewatch value, uncovering both life thats never been photographed previously while charting the habits of the more familiar. Icing The Blue Planets cake is a series of short pieces documenting just how some of the incredible pictures were captured, and these are almost as interesting as the main feature.

Enough of those superlatives, though. Because The Blue Planet simply demands to be seen and enjoyed. Prepare, like many before you, to be mesmerised.

DVD Description
This definitive natural history of the world's oceans covers everything from popular shores and teeming shallows to the mysterious open depths. Two-thirds of the planet is covered by the oceans and yet they remain largely unexplored and certainly under-filmed. The TV series Blue Planet changes all that and subsequently changes our views of the deep. Advances in underwater photography have opened the doors to unknown territories never before explored.

Includes 3 new programmes: The Abyss, Dive To Shark Volcano & Amazon Abyss

very much so :)
Superb set, great to watch and educational too, great post.
This is an amazing set and something that we can all sit together and watch as a family - along with Planet Earth.

Unfortunately, our first disc completely so I am considering buying this set again - such a good price
My son who just turned 11 loves programmes about the sea. Have ordered this for him. He'll love it :thumbsup:
