Editor's Note
With both impressive scope and incredible detail, PLANET EARTH explores the entire world using high-definition cinematography. Boasting a budget of over $25 million, this BBC/Discovery Channel co-production exposes the beauty of the earth and its animal inhabitants, from the foxes of the Tibetan Plateau to the humpback whales of the polar seas. David Attenborough narrates as the vivid documentary takes viewers to Africa's vast savannahs, Uganda's lush jungles, and Indonesia's teeming coral reefs. With 40 cameramen traveling to 200 locations, this is an epic series that can't be missed. This set features a trilogy of habitats that only scrape the surface on the planet's diversity: "Great Plains," "Jungles," and "Shallow Seas."

Professional Reviews

DVD Verdict 10 of 10
Simply put, Planet Earth is the new gold standard in nature documentaries. Produced by Alastair Fothergill and the BBC's Natural History Unit as a follow-up to their universally lauded oceanographic series, The Blue Planet, this 11-part examination of the majestic beauty of Earth's remotest landscapes and rarest species is guaranteed to take your breath away. The show offers a whirlwind tour of the planet, sweeping viewers in grand aerial shots from artic tundra to craggy mountains to surging deserts to rainforests and oceans teeming with life. Along the way we get a brand new glimpse of the life-and-death struggle unfolding daily in the wilds of our globe...Like all nature series, each episode of Planet Earth draws its dramatic intensity from the relentless struggle between life and death--and the show is, indeed, dramatically intense. Placid shots of achingly beautiful flora, fauna, and sprawling landscapes are juxtaposed against the never-ending contest between predator and prey. Planet Earth is absolutely riveting, but not for the feint of heart...It is the astounding breadth, scope, and depth of Planet Earth that makes it revolutionary. - Dan Mancini
