Planet Earth is an epic glance at the majesty and beauty that is our planet. The 5-disc gift set boasts hours and hours of expert, succinct filmography. In the comfort of your own home you can watch stories of our planet unfold and genuinely feel attached to the subjects being captured. Each DVD revolves around different habitats.
From Pole to Pole
I must say, watching the series in HD is truely breathtaking. The detail that is shown throughout the filmography in HD unreal; you will be instantly sucked into the action as you watch the spots on a cheetah ripple as it chases it's prey, or the glistening sparkle of silkworms in a desolate cave. I highly recommend Planet Earth, though some scenes may be too graphic for sensitive individuals (cheetah hunts, etc.) The scope of this project is awe-inspiring; some of the locations have never been touched by humans, therefore BBC has broken into a new frontier of discovery and research.
So if you're looking for a chance to explore our planet without leaving the comfort of your living room, pick up Planet Earth -- you won't be disappointed.
