For those of you who missed the previous deals on this awesome Attenborough epic documentary set its now available for a lower price.

Not only is Planet Earth one of the most jaw-dropping, ambitious, nature documentaries the BBC has ever produced, it’s now taken on another role: as a superb demonstration disc for the strength of and Blu-ray.
Spread over a good ten hours, the series charts life and nature in dozens upon dozens of differing locations around the earth. Diligently and warmly narrated by Sir David Attenborough, Planet Earth calmly goes close in on its subject matter when required, and then pulls out some stunning perspective shots that are simply breathtaking. It’s hard to come up with the right superlatives to do the photography on the programme any kind of justice, and that it’s married to such fascinating subject matter is all the better.

And if you think the original broadcast of Planet Earth was something special, or you were gobsmacked by the picture quality on DVD, just wait until you see it in 1080i HD glory. Particularly some of the broader shots here are all but without parallel, and it’s a real reward for those who have invested ahead of the crowd in high definition technology.

Presented over five discs, and matching wonderful content to spot-on visual presentation, Planet Earth is now not just a landmark in nature documentary film making. It’s also a chartermark of quality for just what HD DVD and Blu-ray can offer. A stunning release, in more than one sense. --Jon Foster (taken from amazon review)

According to the description on Amazon and other retailers including the official BBC shop there is only subtitles in English for the hearing impaired. I own the box set and there is only an option to turn on the english subtitles and then turn them off, no other languages I'm afraid.

Yeah its the first Blu ray I got after getting my new 40 Inch LED TV and Blu ray player last week (early christmas present to myself!). Wildlife in 1080i or 1080p looks awesome.

HOT price esp for the special edition. I have this and it is mindblowing. It is what HD and Bluray is all about and for this price it is totally worth it.

this site never ceases to amaze me. this gets 200+ degrees and the one i posted an hour later for 50p more - which is special edition - has been expired when its still available.

Special Edition version is faulty !! do your research !!

Just a quick update about this set. It has been identified that four of the episodes in this set have a video error where the contrast is blown out. See link below for more info.

forum.blu-ray.com/uni…tml

'BBC's DVD support are denying that there is any issue at the moment so I cannot recommend it at this time. I would anyone who has purchased the set to get in contact with DVDSupport@bbc.com and report the issue.'

'There is no mention anywhere in the amazon page that this video is 1080i instead of 1080p (in 2011 FULL HD should be always 1080p!!!), furthermore the audio is only for 5+1 systems, so it sounds awkward with normal TV speakers. '

So the consumer has to check whether they have been sent a faulty product and then use their time to send it back, I don't think so.
I don't expect to be sent a faulty product in the first place !!

Great find for awesome series, voted hot

The zavvi deal was for the special edition though.. this is just the plain one.

Also for those worried:

I HAVE THE SPECIAL EDITION FROM ZAVVI AND THE CONTRAST LEVELS ARE FINE

I don't have a bluray drive on my laptop, so forgive the quality, but you can clearly see the horizon isn't washed out by contrast unlike the inset image on the right.

They probably removed them from circulation the best they could and this … They probably removed them from circulation the best they could and this is for reassurance. However, if any company is going to stock a bad batch, it will be Zavvi. Thanks for the useful info here



I bought the Special Edition from thehut.com (which is Zavvi) months ago and had no problems. Even checked the disc serials against those on the AV Forums set and they matched as the new ones with the contrast issues sorted.

For under 50p more it'd have to be the Special Edition set every time!
