Publisher Comments:

You'll be filled with awe and amazement every time you watch this stunning BBC series about our planet's best-loved, wildest and most elusive creatures, captured on breathtaking, high-definition film in the Earth's most extreme habitats. Forty cameramen and hundreds of producers, scientists and guides spent four years and $25 million to bring you this God's-eye-view of rare action and intimate moments in impossible locations. Zoom in on the elusive snow leopard hunting a mountain goat on a near-vertical cliff face in Pakistan's Hindu Kush. Swim with the blind angelfish that lives in one waterfall in one cave in Thailand. Squeeze through underground tunnels in New Mexico's recently-discovered Lechuguilla Cave, where crystals dangle like 18-foot chandeliers. Shot entirely in high-definition film, with revolutionary new aerial photography. From the team behind Blue Planet, including the esteemed and beloved Sir David Attenborough. Extras: 13/4 hours of behind-the-scenes footage, plus Planet Earth: The Future — a tremendously informative three-part series.

Review:

"Rarely does television touch heart and soul as effectively as Planet Earth." Tom Shales, Washington Post

Review:

"...Planet Earth beautifully fulfills its promise: to show you the world in a way you've never seen it before....Filled with a sense of wonder that it clearly hopes to inspire in others, Planet Earth is, at times, almost mesmerizingly beautiful." Robert Bianco, USA Today

Review:

"Viewed in standard analog, each of the 11 hourlong episodes...make previous conservation films look pedestrian." Michael Slenske, New York Times

Review:

"Nature often looks better at a distance. Planet Earth, an 11-part mother of all nature series...understands this truth." Susan Stewart, New York Times

Review:

"The miracles, tragedies and comedies of nature on view in Planet Earth, the spectacular new nature documentary series... pile up one after another, like cards in a deck that keep trumping each other." David Bianculli, New York Daily News

Review:

"Spectacular eye candy awaits in this limited-run nature series." Mike McDaniel, Houston Chronicle

Review:

"[B]e prepared to be hypnotized. This is television at its very, very best." Verne Gay, Newsday

Review:

"It's an ecological and technological marvel....I can't remember a more gorgeous spectacle of wildlife and habitats...Planet Earth is truly something to behold." Matt Roush, TV Guide

This is the most wonderfule event I have ever witnessed. It makes you think about the entire world and the pending exitstence of it. If you watch this and do not walk away without thinking I can do MORE to save our beatiful world - then you were not watching. It should be a staple in every school and home!
