Super bargain, thanks for your post!
#2
good find :thumbsup:
#3
No doubt amazon will trump it with a £17.98 shortly but if you use Quidco this'll be the one to go for... ...does the 5% RAC code still work for a further 90p off??
#4
Fantastic Christmas present!
#5
Excellent deal. Been waiting for this to drop :D


EDIT: bought it! :)
Now I need to sell my DVD version on eBay.. lol

I read someone's post yesterday that the RAC members deal wasn't working, so it may no longer be active.

Did anyone get this for much less at Asda, a few weeks ago? I heard of much lower prices instore and would have loved it.
#7
I assume it's discounted because of the new Life + Planet Earth Blu Ray Boxset launching at the end of the month.

The Asda deal was for £17.91 so not much less! :thumbsup:

A bit off topic maybe, and Im probably going to appear pretty stupid.. But whats the difference between Blue Plant, and Planet Earth?

Also, are they any good.. is one better than the other??


..Im just looking for a nice present for my Grandad, he hates soaps etc, but seems to like science and nature programmes, so I keep looking at these deals, but Ive not seen a single programme myself :)
#13
Already have it, super deal!
#14
I already bought it from the Asda deal posted last week.

It came through the door and my dog has wrecked the packaging, i'm tempted to buy this again if only for the packaging.

Here is the info for each

Life:

This ten-part natural history blockbuster, shot in HD, is the definitive exploration of the diversity of life on Earth, revealing the most spectacular and fascinating behaviour driven by the endless struggle to survive. Life stars a cast of 'box-office' wildlife characters, filmed on every continent and in every habitat across the world, with each drama-filled episode entirely dedicated to one of the planet's ten most important wildlife groups.

Planet Earth:

Four years in production, over 2000 days in the field, using 71 cameramen filming across 204 locations in 62 countries, this is the ultimate portrait of our planet. A stunning television experience that combines rare action, unimaginable scale, impossible locations and intimate moments with our planet's best-loved, wildest and most elusive creatures.

I'm guessing you're thinking of the £5 price they had last week or the week before, which was for the DVD.

This is another scorcher, I bought this on here for £20 a couple of months ago. I can't see it going much lower than this any time soon- grab it while it's at this price!! It's what HD was made for!

Blue Planet is about the oceans and it's inhabitants and is a bit older but very good. Don't think it's out on BluRay yet but it's only £8.98 on DVD on amazon. Hold on that's a deal !

Your Grandad will like that, or Life (not out yet) or Planet Earth ! Can't go wrong really :thumbsup:

Not a bad little price for it, just bought the HD-DVD release from WHSmith in-store for 10 quid, and as the transfer and sound is identical I thought it was too good to pass up, especially as the standard dvd edition was sat right next to it for 22 quid hehe.

I'd just tell Asda it got wrecked in post, they'll send out a replacement.

Blu-Ray IS full HD, as in 1080p
So this is the best quality you can get.
#32
That said, Planet Earth isn't full HD - only goes as high as 1080i

You are wrong, pretty much all of it is 1080p, but because a small section of it is filmed in 1080i such as some special features, the BBC have to cover themselves by displaying the lowest figure of resolution

What's wrong with a competitor price matching? :roll:

Yeah that's a good idea! Let Asda pay for the damage caused by his dog! It might be what 'You'd' do Del but some of us aren't criminals! What you are proposing is Fraud.

I've read some of the reviews DK and they seem to suggest that quite a bit of it isn't Full HD. Is that true? I'd love to get this if it is Hi Def but if the picture quality isn't there I know I'll be disappointed.

Some reviews I've seen:

Good but not great, 30 Oct 2009
As a documentary series Planet Earth is beyond reproach, BBC natural world productions usually are and had I been reviewing the DVD set I would have given it 5 stars. However as a Blu-Ray presentation (and that is after all what we are talking about here) it is at best average. Much of the series was not filmed in Hi Def and even some of the HD footage is not as good as more recent series' Anyone descibing it as 'jaw dropping' has obviously not seen the visually stunning 'Life' or Nat Geo's 'Wild Russia' both showing now on Sky HD, which blow Planet Earth away on picture quality.

27 Sep 2009
The picture quality is good but not great and the quality drops to sd alot any moveing scenes are in sd or not true hd, and this box set is only in 1080i which is not true hd anyway, when watching it on a upscaled dvd there is not much difference between the bluray or dvd version,dont get me wrong its a good boxset but not as good as i expected,Earth [Blu-ray] [2007] a better bluray if you like this one is.


I realise there are plenty of positive reviews but there are certainly some that make me doubt the quality oif the picture. Thanks in advance of your reply.
#35
Erm it has ALREADY been established that the first FOUR discs of Planet Earth are full 1080p. The fifth disc (The Snow Leopard one) is 1080i.

It's definetly 1080p, just things like the special features and i also heard the titles are 1080i. And it's amazing quality and a must buy for this price
