This DVD has some great wildlife scenes from Nature's 25 years. I especially liked the one in which the two elephants, Shirley and Jenny, recognize each other as friends after 25 years-- a heartwarming moment like no other in the series. But most of the scenes are from the past few years of the show. The only clip from an episode with narration by George Page was from "Kingdom of the Ice Bear". Page had created the series, hosted and narrated it for many years. There was a tribute to his work by Lynne Sherr, who hosts the special. But it was a somewhat of a disappointment that scenes from more of the old episodes were not included, which, I think were "The Best of Nature". A few of the old programs are available on DVD here at Amazon, and they are well worth getting if you are a fan of the show. But most of them, which were once available on VHS, have not been transferred to DVD.

The content is five stars, but the presentation is a 1. The original broadcast was in letterbox HD format, with a 16x9 aspect ratio. Granted this is not an HD DVD, but for some reason, the picture has been squished into a 4x3 (1.33:1) format. No amount of DVD player tweaking changes this, this despite the claim on the box that the video is "letterbox"'ed. Now, the cover on my box is different from that shown here, so I'm wondering if I got a defective early batch. PBS is sending me a replacement, so stay tuned!

Whether you are a nature lover or not, this is such a great film - a compilation of some of the best nature stories from the last 25 years. The compilation will make you laugh hysterically, cry and cringe in horror from story to story. After seeing it the first time, with some guy friends (who ended up crying), I fell in love with it and wanted to share it with everyone! That I did, and even those friends of mine who can't sit through any part of any nature show really enjoyed it. This is a definite must see!

Wow, Nature has been running on PBS for over twenty five years now. That's very impressive, and hopefully there are many more years to come. Nature was originally created by the late George Page, who hosted the show from its beginning in 1982, but unfortunately he was forced to retire in 1998 because of throat cancer. He wrote a book after his retirement entitled "Inside the Animal Mind" in 2001 and five years later he unfortunately passed away. He's the reason Nature even exists and that's why I was angry with this so called "best of" Nature special. It's a shame they didn't work harder on this, it could have been great. Most of the selected scenes from this program are mostly from 1998 to 2007. That's only nine of the twenty five years Nature was on the air. The tribute to George Page is very disappointing it's about two minutes long, two minutes! I'm not saying I hate the newer episodes of Nature, I own many of them, but to say this is the best of Nature is not to be taken seriously.

But putting that aside, there are some amazing sequences that were shocking and heartwarming and the filmmakers captured these moments brilliantly. The Best of Nature is hosted by Lynn Sherr but I think it would have been better if some of the filmmakes had hosted this special cause many of them have been with the show for most of its entire run. And maybe then they could have given us more insight on George Page, what it was like working with him, and the troubles filming certain sequences. But I have to say, Lynn Sherr did a good job and she must be commended for this.

Nature is just so incredible; it's a show where the narrators don't have to make silly puns and jokes to make it enjoyable. Nature is a show where I would learn something new every episode and I still do.

Great video of unusual animals and birdlife. Really enjoyed the stories behind the reunions of the animals and humans. I will watch this over and over.
