    Beyond stunning. Watching this was somewhat emotional. The beautiful shots are enhanced by David Attenborough's narrations, and the script (the stories) are really moving. The bonus segments at the end of each episode is really interesting, and the last disc contains bloopers (as well as interviews). Hilarious and really, the amount of time and effort it takes to film these specials should warrant their own documentaries! (we follow the filmographers and the producers as they battle bugs and weather to frame a shot, the negotiations and help they get from the locals and scientists who live with the animals day-in-and-out, etc)

    If you love shows about animals then AFRICA is a must see movie. This doesn't just retread on information you've heard a thousand times but shows you animals all over Africa in different and amazing ways. There are 3 to 4 episodes on each disc each about the animals from a different region in Africa . You will see Giraffes , Lions , Rhino's , elephants and many more animals in unique ways that you haven't seen. Great for any nature collection and I highly recommend this set of discs.

    I own multiple products by BBC Earth - Planet Earth, Life, Frozen Planet, Human Planet, etc. With Africa, BBC Earth has done it again - stunning audio/video quality and narrated by the one and only sir attenborough. Still think Planet Earth and Life provide more bang for your buck, especially when they go on sale, but Africa has been an awesome addition to my BBC Earth collection. Would recommend for nature documentary fans out there.

    This is why you get blu-ray

    Yes its true Richard Attenborough likes to say a lot of cute one liners- but this is a phenomenal bluray. I have a 50" HDTV that is fairly new and I wanted a 'demo disc' to pop it's cherry. The fighting giraffes, the slow motion, and the cinematography. everything about this documentary is impressive. Add on to that if you've been to Africa or have a love for it. I think buying dvds is a waste of money, but there are always exceptions. Terrific value for $19.98.

    My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed "AFRICA - Eye to Eye with the Unknown." We always enjoy David Attenborough narrations and he is wonderful in this 2 disc Blu-Ray BBC Earth presentation. Beautiful never before seen camera shots are totally awesome and almost unbelievable! Would highly recommend!

    Narrated by the excellent David Attenborough this documentary covers the 5 different ranges in Africa. The shots on here are incredible and the detail is amazing. This is the reason you have the HDtv with full 1080 resolution. Lots of great information contained within and they also show how some fo the behind the scenes work with how the crew got some of the shots. This blu-ray was worth every penny.

    This is one of the best blu-ray films and top 3 nature documentaries I have ever scene. The film quality is excellent and throughout the two disc set you understand the challenges of filming in Africa and a little behind the scenes look. David Attenburough says he has lived through the greatest advancement in nature filming and this is one of the best he has seen yet. Must buy!!
