Nothing but http://g-ec2.images-amazon.com/images/G/02/x-locale/common/customer-reviews/stars-5-0.gif rating @ Amazon. Few reviews here :-


http://g-ec2.images-amazon.com/images/G/02/x-locale/common/customer-reviews/stars-5-0.gifUnquestionable brilliance, 23 Jun 2006
I have never in my life seen anything like this series. I had thought that the Blue Planet, also by the BBC, was the pinnacle of achievement of wildlife television. The deep sea episode had left me breathless, but that proved nothing compared to Planet Earth. The effort that went into this series is obvious. Only at the end of each show when we spend time with each of the crews do we really get a sense of what they had to do to bring such beauty before us. This is not self-serving "let's pat ourselves on the back" television. It only adds to the sense of wonder, and to the sense of how privileged we have been to see some of the rarest sights in nature. The camerawork is sensational. The killer whale rising out of the sea with the seal in its mouth, the diving hawks making their mid-air kill, the snow leopard bounding down sheer cliffs, the chandelier cave. All incredible. This is unlike most other "animal" tv shows, where the audience is patronised into listening to an ill-thought out anthropomorphic commentary which is little more than "ooohhh...isn't that cute" or "whoooah...isn't that dangerous". Attenborough is wonderful. He has the humility to understand that the show is not about him, and he is prepared to say nothing whilst our senses drink in "that shot" of Angel Falls or the intense colours of the Okavanga Delta. The behaviour of the Gobi desert camels left me speechless; you don't need some idiot telling you how amazing it is. I can recommend this serious without hesitation. This is public television at its best. It cannot be financially prudent to spend 40 days in the Gobi desert chasing Bactrian camels, but it takes real corporate bravery to say that natural beauty cannot be captured on the cheap. The camera techniques (remember the African dogs chase?) are priceless. You must watch this series. People at my office were discussing each episode for days afterward. Friends' children were having the same discussions - "oh my god - did you see that?" If 8 year old children and 60 year old lawyers have the same base sense of wonder, nobody will watch this and think, "it's just another documentary". This is nothing like you will have seen before. I thought I was a cynic, but this really has re-opened my eyes to the raw power of nature.

This is such an amazing breathtaking DVD. It is by far the best Nature Documentary has produced so far and seeing the first new episode of the new series in Antartica is just as good. Some of the footage is never be seen before and never been recorded before and some of the fotage filmed wont be seen again for another century. My favourite episode is when a snow leopard chases some prey down a dangerous rocky hillsde which is seriously steep and the prey only just manages to get away. Another amazing never seen eppisode is where they climg miles and miles underground to a crystal cave that has though to have never been inhabited in the whole recorded History. I would strongly recommend this book to people who are really into Nature and Birdwatchers as it has colourfull rare species never seen before by most birdWatchers. Look forward to the new series and the other series after that!!

Well region 2 (PAL) DVDs are 720x576 and HD-DVD would effectively allow for 1920x1080. Though generally most stuff is being touted as HD using 1280x720 (which looks fantastic anyway).

Good deal Cat! Voted hottie :)

I posted this deal a couple of days ago in the £3 off HMV thread, no one seemed to care then...

Thanks x0lliex for that... It's a problem with lists within threads, some great offers get overlooked. I even missed it after replying to other posts down the list.

It's fine to post a good deal on it's own, even if you first post it in another thread [a good point to remember for next time ;-)].
