excellent DVD set
on December 23, 2009
Another one of BBC's "Wild" series and it ranks up there with the others. Not quite as expansive as Wild China, and a bit repetitious with some segments appearing twice through the set, which I why I gave it only 4 stars instead of 5. However, this DVD set gives an excellent view into life in and on the Pacific. Because the Pacific is an oceanic realm, much of the photography is underwater. There are also many scenes of bird life which are fascinating. Anyone sensitive to the plight of birds may want to know that, as in nature, many birds meet a ghastly end in these films. And, as in other of the "Wild" series, the films touch on the conflict between humans and nature. The last section touches on the future of the ocean and what programs may or may not help secure the future of some of these oceanic species. Highly recommended.
