Description
A NATURAL HISTORY OF BEHAVIOUR

Originally broadcast in 1990, Trials of Life is still one of the most comprehensive wildlife documentaries ever made. It examines animal behaviour in all its infinite variety and in doing so we are all allowed to witness some of the most enchanting animal personalities, as well as some of the most fearsome. Leaving parents, searching for food, building a home, finding a mate: each day brings a new test, a challenge for even the fittest and best adapted animal. Taking some three and a half years to make, David Attenborough travelled almost a quarter of a million miles to complete this fascinating and insightful documentary.

Episodes: Arriving | Growing Up | Finding Food | Hunting and Escaping | Finding the Way | Homemaking | Living Together | Fighting | Friends and Rivals | Talking to Strangers | Courting | Continuing The Line

Special Features : Scene Selection * The Making of Trials of Life.

I initially voted this hot, as its 2 quid cheaper than the amazon price (and the rrp is £29.99), however, on closer examination, the 3 disc version is NOT the full version, the full version has 4 discs. Which one you'll actually get here is anyones guess.

For those not in the know, in 2002 the BBC released this with around 15 minutes of footage from each episode cut (presumably this was the version aired on BBC Prime/other foreign channels with advert breaks), then in 2004 they re-released it with the full episode length.

Thanks for the info MrT2, however The Hut do advertise this as the FULL version, but i do take your point.

This claims to be the version released in September 2004 which would also suggest the longer version, and I suppose you could always complain if it's not.

Same price at ]ASDA online, again the 2004 "Full" release stated but only 3 disks.

From Amazon user comments,

Buyers, check which version your seller is offering.The technical details … Buyers, check which version your seller is offering.The technical details above refer to the 4 disc 583min full version released in 2004, but many sellers will only have the 3 disc 358min cut version released in 2002.


I think I'll pass on this... :? The ]Amazon one is 4 disks, 600minutes, 2004, in the details though the header shows "1990". £12.
