The contents of this box set are as follows:

LIFE
Narrated by David Attenborough
Number of Discs: 4
Feature: 10 Episodes, 586 Minutes
Bonus Material: Life on Location (collection of 10 behind-the-scenes video diaries)

NATURE'S MOST AMAZING EVENTS
Narrated by David Attenborough
Number of Discs: 2
Feature: 6 Episodes, 300 Minutes
Bonus Material: Nature's Most Amazing Events video diaries

SOUTH PACIFIC
Narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch
Number of Discs: 2
Feature: 6 Episodes, 353 Minutes
Bonus Material: 10-Minuted "Making Of" video with each episode

YELLOWSTONE: BATTLE FOR LIFE
Narrated by Peter Firth
Number of Discs: 1
Feature: 3 Episodes, 150 Minutes
Bonus Material: The People of Yellowstone

Video/Audio Info:
- Video quality is 1080i on most of the discs, "Life" is 1080p
- English subtitles on all discs, "Life" also has Spanish & French subtitles
- All of these sets are the BBC UK versions, uncut and with original narrators.

I highly recommend this box set. Most people are familiar with "Life" and "Nature's Most Amazing Events", both of which are must-owns on Blu-Ray. But the other two series, "Yellowstone" and "South Pacific", also have stunning cinematography and are worth a watch.

Disc 1 blu ray of Life (David Attenburg BBC version) contains a "High Definition Set Up Guide." This is a valuable tool to calibrate, tweak, and optimize your entire home theater system (these 3: blu-ray-player / HD-TV / audio) for its peak performance. The prompts take you through test patterns to adjust the contrast, brightness/darkness, sharpness, edges of aspect ratios, color saturation, hue, etc.; as well as speaker 5.1 sound test and volumizer. Sample scenes and demo's (famous London landmarks) are included as well. It's easy to use and very basic, for the laymen. It's a simplified version of the more advanced, Digital Video Essentials: HD Basics [Blu-ray]

The BBC sucked me in with their Planet Earth program when it first aired on American television. On the strength of that product alone I went and purchased both of these BBC High-Definition Natural History Collections. With both of them, the main feature (in this case, "Life") is obviously very well done and enjoyable to view. The others are more 4 star quality programs and don't feel as satisfying as watching the main offering.

If you're into nature documentaries at all, the full set of Collection 1 and 2 may be an amazing start to your own disc based collection.

Get this. So awesome. I had no idea all these environmental facts. I'm an activist now. There's a lot to learn watching these. I've really expanded my horizons. Not only is this entertaining but I learn a lot of relevant information. Plus it shows off my TV and sound system. I got the Natural History Collection 1 and 2. I also got Human Planet, Wonders of the Solar System and wonders of the universe. I want Madagascar now.

DIESEL! get it.

These Blu-Rays sell for much cheaper individually. So unless you MUST have the outer box, it is a better deal to buy them seperately until it comes down in price.

As for the actual product, BBC delivers a truly amazing High Definition exploration of the Natural world. A+++

I have always been a fan of nature shows, and BBC continues to produce some of the best out there. David Attenborough is one of the greatest nature show narrators, and you can tell he has a genuine interest in the material rather than just reads from a script.

The Life series has some great variety, and includes quite a lot of new footage compared to the Planet Earth series. Also, unlike the Blu-ray version of Planet Earth, this set includes the 15-minute "behind the scenes" featurettes after each program. Visual quality does vary a bit depending on what cameras they had to use, but the vast majority of the footage is crystal clear 1080p.

The other bundled programs are also worth watching. This set is definitely worth owning for any nature lovers out there - especially if you can find it on sale.

These are truly fantastic series from the BBC, I have this and Planet Earth and am often sincerely amazed by each episode. This is a spectacular planet we live on and nature is more beautiful than anything else and the footage on these discs shows that brilliantly and ingeniously. Watching these blu-rays often makes me feel like a little kid, like I'm seeing and learning about the world and animals for the first time. I love this set and it doesn't have the audio glitch that the Planet Earth set I got has (read my review of Planet Earth for more info).
