This sequel to the critically acclaimed BBC series about the vast scope of life on earth. Sir David Attenborough presents this collection of UltraHD footage of deserts, jungles, mountains, grasslands, islands and more, shot with the latest technologies and showcasing a living record of our home planet's flora, fauna and geography.
Planet Earth Diaries - one 10-minute feature at the end of each episodes showing how this astonishing footage was captured.
The advances that have occurred in the methods to capture the behavior of animals in their natural environment are particularly obvious. The use of an on-bird video camera view of an Alpine valley from the perspective of a flying eagle looking for food, its hurtling dive to that food and then the fights between competing eagles at the site of the food is a must-watch.
This 3 disc has three subject segments on each disc. This is an outstanding disc. The photography is outstanding the sound and narration fully up to the previous standards set by David Attenborough's experience. The subjects are varied and planet comprehensive. Very good entertainment that lasts, as
it doesn't get old to view it again.
This is without a doubt the most stunningly produced documentary I've ever seen. The series of six episodes beautifully captures details of life in various ecosystems including islands, deserts, mountains, and forests. The presentation follows various animals through discussions of how they eat, live, and mate and the ecological challenges they face and overcome. People of all ages should be able to relate to their stories and will marvel at the variety, versatility, and ingenuity of life on our planet. The superb narration by Sir David Attenborough is the cherry on top of this already perfect blend of beauty, education, and enthralling stories.Very young children may be stressed about the plights of some of the animals, but generally the circle of life is handled with sensitivity to all viewers.
If you have a 4K TV and UHD Blu-Ray player, this is also one of the best showcases you will find for the improved detail and color capabilities of these devices.
