This jaw-dropping, 11-part series from the BBC’s Natural History Unit presents the epic story of life on Earth. Series producer Alastair Fothergill and his team spent four years in production, over 2000 days in the field, using 71 cameramen filming across 204 locations in 62 countries to capture the ultimate portrait of our planet. It has garnered legions of fans and universal critical acclaim with Oprah Magazine saying “It is the most beautiful, wondrous and truly majestic series – the best thing I’ve ever seen on TV.” Using a budget of unprecedented proportions and captured on HD cameras, Planet Earth is among the highest rated and best selling HD programs ever made. It offers stunning visuals perfect for any HD television or HD handheld device like the Apple iPad which launched on April 3rd.
Planet Earth, (a co-production of BBC and Discovery), first aired on the Discovery Channel in 2007. It’s the precursor to the BBC nature series Life which is airing on the Discovery Channel right now and releasing on DVD June 1, 2010 from BBC Video.
My kids and I can’t wait to watch this episode together. It sounds like something Ashley would really be interested in, because she’s totally into science. This will be a great way to kick off our own family Earth Day celebration and learn more about this beautiful planet God created.
