    Me neither mate, going to look absolutely breathtaking in UHD.

    All that's been confirmed so far is that there will be 6 hour long episodes. It will definitely be starting this year though, probably next month.

    Neither, you'll never get round to watching them if you're anything like me X)

    MrScotchBonnet

    No thanks.



    Just pointing out David Attenborough is not exclusive to the BBC. Hardly something worth saying 'look what the BBC can produce' about.

    Why would I want to watch some crappy little thing on a headset? What is the point you are trying to make exactly?

    Very astute of you. Yes I did edit it some more. There was nothing wrong with my spelling, but my sentence construction was tosh.

    And David Attenborough is still not exclusive to the BBC.

    Just pointing out it's not justification for the existence of the BBC, which appears to be the point of this thread? Not look what the BBC can produce. Look what David Attenborough can produce and he can do it for other mediums and services not just the BBC.

    MrScotchBonnet

    I do.



    Blimey! Out on a date with deeky, & trying to get hitched to me.

    They should add a couple of guest commentaries as well as a blu ray extra. See if you can handle watching it with Russel brand or Alan Carr as narrator!.. The whole experience would be ruined.

    It definitely feels right with Attenborough.

    Fully agree though, the effort and time taken to get all this footage is what makes it special (I own the blu rays of the first series and will definitely get this one too).

    A little reminder of what the BBC does produce...

    "I have to say that there are moments when I wonder — moments when its two senior networks, first set up as a partnership, schedule simultaneously programmes of identical character, thereby contradicting the very reason that the BBC was given a second network. Then there are times when both BBC One and BBC Two, intoxicated by the sudden popularity of a programme genre, allow that genre to proliferate and run rampant through the schedules. The result is that other kinds of programmes are not placed, simply because of a lack of space. Do we really require so many gardening programmes, make-over programmes or celebrity chefs? Is it not a scandal in this day and age, that there seems to be no place for continuing series of programmes about science or serious music or thoughtful in-depth interviews with people other than politicians?"

    Have they discovered new species or is it just repeated information, presented differently?

    I agree he adds to it immensely, but its a combination of the production and the narrator, not one or the other exclusively.

    I recon Morgan Freeman could have a good crack at it, but he would be just reading a script, whereas Attenborough does know what he's on about!

    How dare you
    How dare you use the word "repeated" when commenting about the BBC

    It's just like saying the BBC produce paedophiles or allow paedophiles to hide among it's employees - absolutely disgusting remark

    Yes Sir David does a fantastic job and has done for years but I think the majority of the content will just be upgraded video quality of previous footage shot buy poorly funded camera men who risk their lives whilst the fat cats of the BBC (excluding Sir David) reap the benefits and glory

    Did I go to far?

    Oprah Winfrey narrates the US version of Planet Earth so I hear.

    Technology has come on leaps and bounds in 10 years phil. Drones would have played a massive part in filming much of this I imagine.

    I cannot disagree with your statement there
    What I can say is that this show is most likely to please those who believe in 4K definition whereas I believe in seeing things in real life.
    Yes I've seen a komodo dragon (two in fact) in real life, up close and very aggressive << only because when me and the Mrs went to Bali and visited an island to view them it was the wrong time of the month for my Mrs - not a good thing to do
    Yes I've seen wild and free elephants, hippos, lions, leopards, rhinos plus many more wild and free animals whilst on safari in Africa and nothing will better that experience
    You can't forget real memories but you can easily forget tv shows... just saying
