Product Description

Product Description

This landmark series uses specialist imaging and compelling narrative to tell the life story of our planet, how it works, and what makes it so special. Examining the great forces that shape the Earth - volcanoes, the ocean, the atmosphere and ice - the programme explores their central roles in our planet's story. How do these forces affect the Earth's landscape, its climate, and its history? CGI gives the audience a ringside seat at these great events, while the final episode brings together all the themes of the series and argues that Earth is an exceptionally rare kind of planet - giving us a special responsibility to look after our unique world. This is a series that shows the Earth in new and surprising ways. Extensive use of satellite imagery reveals new views of our planet, while timelapse filmed over many months brings the planet to life. Offering a balance between dramatic visuals and illuminating facts, this ground-breaking series makes global science truly compelling.

5.0 out of 5 stars Increadable Must see for everybody Nov. 21 2010
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is a series presented by Dr.Iain Stewart with his refreshing Scottish accent.He has presented this series of how the impact of "Volcano", "Atmosphere", "Ice", and "Oceans" affect the Earth.He finishes the series with his presentation why our planet is unique in the episode "Rare Earth". Few documentaries have me as riveted as this one as Dr.Stewart took me around the world into space and into volcanoes under the sea and ice.But for me the most remarkable of the whole series was the the salt mines in Sicily.The style of presentation of Dr.Stewart is very pleasant which will make it enjoyable for children and adults to watch. This documentary is at par with Life and Planet earth.Bravo to the makers of this documentaries and Dr.Stewart you do more for the environment than fear mongering it brings awareness through education.I hope people watch this on Blue ray to enjoy the great photography.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Excellent Series on Blu-ray Sept. 21 2012
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This series boasts 5 - 45 min long episodes (on 2 discs) mostly in HD, as there is older footage on a few. Never the less, this series was amazing with excellent cinematography and narration throughout. Definitely worthy of being in the BBC library. I highly recommend this for family and classroom viewing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! Feb. 2 2010
This documentary is great! Visually impressive and non-repetitive, lots of interesting material. Worth every penny. If you are a documentary fan, this one is definitely worth adding to the collection.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not very informative April 10 2013

Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The photography was great in spots but I found the program generally weak in providing useful insights. There is segment where you can watch a fellow climb a mountain but if you would like an idea of when the Thames might freeze over you are out of luck.
