It is all wonderfully fascinating.

And what he talks about, explains, reveals and sometimes astonishes; and it certainly stays with you!

It has lots on insights and presents the history of filming documentaries, which I found fascinating.

Absolutely incredible 3 part series from Sir David Attenborough who shares with us his most incredible life stories starting from the early 50's. His story is story of our understanding of nature and how it's changed in the last 60 years. Incredible achievement, wealth of information and role he played in developing scientific TV series on nature and life on planet Earth. Fascinating life stories of an incredible men. Experience the legend.

Wisdom, knowledge, perspective, humility; inspirational! I watched "Our Fragile Planet" yesterday on PBS. It was amazing: even though David Attenborough is getting on a bit these days, he is still fresh -- and still passionate about protecting life on this planet, in all its glory and diversity. If there is anyone we should listen to on our tiny biosphere floating in space, it is him. You can catch this episode at pbs.org for a while. I will be getting the full DVD set shortly: I have no doubt the other two episodes are just as inspirational.

The man is a world treasure. I teach AP biology and I have used the material found within all of his videos as good content exposure. This disk contains early footage that is interesting to view simply because of how much we have changed our perception of stewardship regarding the natural world.

This was a pleasant surprise.
NATURE and BBC have collated pieces of the creme-de-la-creme of Attenborough's adventures and interposed them with interviews of Sir David. That is not the surprise. The surprise is that they have sharpened the old footage to near-Blu-Ray quality.

If you feel inspired by David Attenborough, this is a keepsake.
Yes, there are recycled pieces from "Making of Trials of Life" and "40 years on the air"; but I can listen to them over and over again.
I loved it because the interviews reveal Sir David's deep understanding of nature and I could travel with him (in spirit) on these superb adventures.
I liked it because was Blu-Ray; it really makes a difference when it comes to natural history films.
I am sure you won't regret buying this.
However, there are identical DVDs/BLU-RAY discs with slightly different names; so make sure that you don't end up with a duplicate :-)

I would wish for David Attenborough many years of life to come, during which he keeps telling us all about the infinite variety of the flora and fauna around humankind as his film makers keep on recording his tales. The man is larger than life with the most mesmerizing voice on the planet. He could read a Chinese phone book and cast a spell over his audience. And what he talks about, explains, reveals and sometimes astonishes; and it certainly stays with you!

If you're a fan of David you will love this DVD. It takes you back to his first adventures and he narrates all of it (of course)! He takes you through the different filming techniques he experienced throughout his life, quirky and humorous things that have happened, and silly stories about his past. Well worth the buy!

another classic from Sir David Attenborough. Each of the three episodes looks at a feature which is followed throughout his career; technology, science, and conservational knowledge. Each in their own right interesting as they are seen through the eyes of Sir David's lifetime. Early footage of Sir David is shown and as his own life's progress is documented so too is the development of the natural science movie genre. A classic for all Attenborough followers.

I cannot wait to show this to my advanced 7th grade Life science classes, they will love it! I especially love how he compares land areas and how they have changed drastically over the years. The North Pole ice cap? Shrinking horribly quickly.
Will our kids kids see a real Polar bear at this rate?

Extremely informative, and a major wake up call to those who dont believe in global warming or species extinction at a rapid rate.
