In Planet Earth, Sir David Attenborough takes us on a tour of many different types of habitats, showing animals and behaviour which have rarely, if ever, been captured on film.
Wild China shows China in a wonderful light with incomparable natural vistas and scenery to take your breath away. Animals are unusual and the relationship between them and people is brought into sharp focus.
Galapagos loosely follows Darwin's travels and the genesis of his ideas.
We haven't yet watched Ganges, but I see no reason to think that it won't be as good as all the other programs here.
These are all worthy additions to a video library. The programs can be watched many times over without losing one's sense of wonder at the natural world. For most of us, these images are the closest we will ever get to seeing many rare and endangered animals.
Many memories to be treasured and others to be best forgotten. I am not exaggerating when I say that the BBC High-Definition Natural History Collection using Blu-ray technology delivers an experience that is so immediate as to compete in some ways with ALL that is entailed in "being there". It truly is a risk free,affordable mode of travel and a treat for the senses as well as for the intellect. I rate it ******! (I grant you that the food is not as good!)
Galapagos is a fascinating exploration of the island chain geologicaly, biologicaly and historicaly. The China series covers the land, people and history with a focus on the present geography and sociology. It is a truly superb nature documentary. So far we have not seen the Ganges series, but we anticipate several engaging evenings if the others are anything to go by. In my estimation the set was well worth the price and is quite possibly the finest combination pack of nature documentaries available on Blu-ray today.

China was good. Ganges was disappointing. The script was poor and the narrator was not smooth. Even the graphics was jumpy!Published 17 months ago by solo
