I purchased this multi-disc set because I love the quality and experience of viewing an IMAX film. I was skeptical that I would enjoy the Blu-ray versions as much as the theater versions, but I was in for a surprise! The quality of the film and audio were equal to the theater version, if not, somewhat better. There is nothing like watching theater quality entertainment in the comfort of your living room or bedroom. I watch a lot of Discovery Channel and Animal Planet and I have seen Planet Earth and Blue Planet, but I really preferred the audio and visual experience of these IMAX films.

The individual Blu-ray discs included in this box set are-
Africa, The Serengeti - 40 minutes
Australia, Land Beyond Time - 75 minutes
Antarctica, Adventure of a Different Nature - 40 minutes
Alaska, Spirit of the Wild - 40 minutes
Ocean Oasis - 40 minutes

The packaging includes 3 regular size Blu-ray disc cases. Africa, The Serengeti and Australia, Land Beyond Time as well as Alaska, Spirit of the Wild and Antarctica, An Adventure of a Different Nature are in a Blu-ray case that utilizes both sides for holding a disc. Ocean Oasis is in a Blu-ray case that holds one disc. It is the first time I have seen a Blu-ray case for multiple discs. It is really convenient because it uses less space on my forever-expanding storage shelves.

All in all, I would highly recommend this set to anyone who loves the IMAX experience and anyone that appreciates the beauty in nature.

First let me mention that the three stars are for persons who have seen BBC's Planet earth. I would give five stars to the picture quality of this current package. BUT, on the other hand, it has nothing new, the narration is detached from the nature experience. It is more about spot events and snap shots and less about a whole organic subject. The animal kill is spectacularly filmed in close-ups where in planet earth they try to avoid that.

I would look elsewhere for a good documentary. The imagery is great but the narration is horrible, I think even small children would find the narration simplistic and sometimes awkward or goofy. There are much better films available that capture better imagery and have a narrator that doesn't sound like she's talking to a 2nd grade class.

I was very disappointed at this pack. I'm an avid nature video watcher and this pack is very disappointing. The images are not great and the sound effects are downright annoying (narration is too soft and "music" is too loud). I do not recommend this pack.

I was surprised for the superb quality of pictures on all of the Mother Earth Blu Ray. I do recommend this 5-Pack if you like exuberant nature.
