Found 15th Mar 2014
Planet Earth Blu-ray 5 disc boxset (550 minutes) for only £7.
Seen in Sainsbury in Durham this morning.

The creators of Blue Planet reunite to celebrate our remarkable planet as never before thought possible with a stunning trip into the wilderness shot on revolutionary high-definition cameras over the course of five years, and utilizing 40 cameramen in 200 locations. These are the scenes that simply were not possible with older filmmaking technology, and from the highest mountain peaks to the deepest river floors, Planet Earth sets out to capture on camera the most elusive creatures every known to humankind. Acclaimed actor David Attenborough narrates as the filmmakers of Planet Earth take viewers on a journey that is truly out of this world.

Brilliant. Having this if I see one. Cheers OP.

There is no match IMO to BBC footage and Attenboroughs' voice on nature documentaries, can and have watched these over and over.

Heat added.

Blow me! I managed to get one. One left in Durham. Heat added.

Bought it online from them in January for less. Still a good deal though albeit particular to one or two branches.

Funny how they're still calling their distribution division "BBC DVD" even though the world has long since moved on to a different, superior format and this one actually IS in that format. Just shows how quick they are to adapt, and this is why an institution as streamlined and smooth-working as the Beeb will still be around in its current form many, many decades from now. /sarcasm
Voted hot, btw, as this programme is nevertheless a great achievement.

What I mean is that there is a superior format that has now fully come into its own: media prices are finally very reasonable and hardware is practically dirt cheap.
I estimate the only people still hanging onto dvd are those who don't have an hd tv yet, those who love a £1 bargain too much (ignoring that you can get good used BDs for just £2.50) and those who are happy enough with dvd quality (because they haven't really had their eyes opened to hd yet) OR who don't believe the format quality is enough of a leap to justify the upgrade - but that's also because they haven't properly tried it out and done a side-by-side comparison.
I'm a pragmatist and I was never gonna be an early adopter at the crazy early prices, but once it became truly affodable, I fully embraced it.

I'm exactly the same I love my blu-rays and wouldn't buy a dvd if I had a choice but a) Sometimes you will NEVER get a choice - I'd say well over half of the classic you'd want on blu-ray - particularly TV shows, will never see a blu-ray release and b) Look at the amount of heat dvd's are still getting on here. It's taken until 4K is upon us for blu-rays to finally come down to sensible prices, sadly. I mean look what happened when dvd's replaced VHS - no contest. But plenty of people with full HD TV's are still buying dvd's.

dvd version is £5 in my local

Argh, yes, I totally forgot about the classics that aren't available on BD...

Had some at this price in Sainsbury Fosse Park this morning if anyone is still looking for a copy.
