Customer Reviews

Beautiful cinematography with a very good narration.
D. Burd
Before watching this, I never truly appreciated nor did I understand how precious our world, nature, and all living things and creatures really are.
N. Graf
I can watch them over and over (My husband will watch them once).

This is a very smart purchase. when i first ordered, i was under the impression that i was getting the entire planet earth series plus extra footage and a few episodes of blue planet. i was completely wrong! it comes with the entire series of both shows and extras for both shows. everyone will find something to enjoy in one if not both of the shows. i highly recommend it!

I watched many Planet Earth episodes on TV and when the combined series came out, I bought them in a heart beat.
Everytime I watched an episode, I felt an overwhelming sense of appreciation of this rich and spectacular place we live in and a strong conviction of helping to make sure that the beauty and the uniqueness of this place is preserved and cared for. The people who made these two series deserve the best credit for their high artistic standard, great technical execution and genuine communication of the facts.

I bought this set for my daughter, not realizing there was a difference between the BBC version (narrated by Sir David Attenborough) and the US version (narrated by Sigourney Weaver). She loves Attenborough's voice and presentation; much better than Ms. Weaver's, though hers is certainly well done.

These images are breathtaking in scope. Brilliant in execution.

The techniques used at the various remote locations belie a never before seen meeting of technology, global rarity, and the epitome of loving ones work. Even if you only see them aired digitally, you'll want to own and then share these movies with anyone able to benefit from a growing awareness of the unique and varied life on this planet.

the combination of planet earth and blue planet is excellent. diaries show how hard BBC team have struggled to shoot some of the rarest animals... hats off to them!!..
also its pathetic to know that all these rare animals moving towards extinction.
quality of video is excellent, but the dvds arrived bit late, may be because this was just the start of this combination dvds.

Very happy with the Planet Earth set. Everything as expected: HD with bonus feature at the end of each episode. However, rather disappointed with the Blue Planet series. Did not realize that this is just a SD DVD. Not only that, no subtitle. Watching it on my 58-in plasma TV is worse than on my old 36-in SD TV. This did not do justice to the amazing videography of the happenings in the ocean. Overall, superb contents on both series, highly recommend. But I skipped the 5th/last DVD of the Planet Earth set because it was just annoyingly preachy, more than my taste can tolerate. I recommend purchasing these 2 sets separately and make sure that both are HD, which I plan to re-purchase the Blue Planet series.

I have always loved nature films since a kid so when I saw Planet Earth on Discovery channel I recorded them on our dvr. Well they don't stay there forever when your husband hits the delete button. So when I saw this set I was thrilled. I didn't realize how many episodes I missed. I can watch them over and over (My husband will watch them once). I show them when I have company over the house. Even though I didn't buy the HD set,(I don't have a HD DVD player) I have a HD tv and they still look incrediable. This is one DVD set every home should have.

Complete Series?
Yes, they are both complete. If you don't own either series already, I'd say this is the set to get as you save some money over buying them separately.

Wide-screen?
Here's what I posted in reply to a similar question in the forum for the Blue Planet SE. The short version: all available versions of The Blue Planet on the BBC Video label are widescreen:

I have the original four-disc set from the BBC (not the Discovery channel version) and it is widescreen.... Read More

Any possibility of finding this exact set in Blu-Ray?
Haven't heard any plans for such a release. Hope it happens though; these shows deserve it.

Can I buy JUST "The Blue Planet" set for bluray or DVD?
Blue Planet has been released separately, if you already have Planet Earth and just want to buy that series. It is currently available only in SD; no Bluray release has yet been announced.
