Editorial Reviews

The Equator series is an epic production, capturing every detail in high definition, that takes viewers on a 40,000-kilometer odyssey chasing the sun to some of the most extreme and diverse locations on the planet. The equator is not only the line that divides the Earth in two--it's also a line of life and a powerful force of nature, where the pace of evolution quickens. The equator covers only 5% of the Earth's surface, but is home to 50% of its animal and plant species.

Just as humanity evolved under the glare of the equatorial sun on the East African savannah, it's no accident that many "hot spots" of biological significance occur along the equator. The equatorial sun is the most powerful source of energy on Earth, a force that reaches well beyond the equatorial band itself. As it beats down on the oceans, moist air rises on such a large scale that it generates the trade winds and great ocean currents that energize life on distant parts of the globe.

In this episode: The rainforests of Southeast Asia are a battleground. Here, the world's greatest diversity of species fights for light, food, and life. Fueled by the sun, rapid evolution encourages cunning and strategy to help plants and animals stake their claims in this complex environment.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some amazing caterpillar! July 13, 2009
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I liked this disc, in spite of a few problems with it (e.g., the background music tends to drown out the narration at the beginning of the disc). The main location for the story is Borneo. Some amazing footage towards the middle of the disc, especially the weirdest-looking caterpillar I have ever seen. It reminded me of the well-known fossil species Hallucigenia. Also, a mantis that looks like a flower (no kidding!). Recommeded.

3.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for the series, 1 star for the release December 11, 2010
By Howard
5 stars for the series, 1 star for the release, so average: 3 stars

The "Equator" series is a wonderfully filmed, written and narrated nature series. In quality is matches, if not surpasses, the later and much more hyped "Planet Earth", "Life" series's. Unfortunately, the producers and/or distributors did not market it as successfully. As to the DVD releases, they also made a few blunders:

1. the cover of these DVDs are too gaudy, it makes one think of them as cheap children films. But they are not; they are professionally made nature shows.
2. they did not release them as a box set. In fact, it is very hard to find all the DVDs in the same series.

There are:
1) Power of an Ocean: The Galapagos and Palmyra ...
2) Battle for the Light: The rainforests of South East Asia ...
3) Rivers of the Sun: The mighty Amazon River ...
4) Paradox of the Andes: In Ecuador the equatorial sun ...
5) Reef of Riches: tropical jungle and on the coral reef ...
6) Challenge of Change > the Great Rift Valley ...

One day I will add all of these to my collection.

Note to Discovery: please release a box set of Bluray DVDs!
