Documentary written and introduced by David Attenborough. This wildlife programme charts the lives of various animals on our planet, chronicling their differing journeys from birth to adulthood, each from their own unique perspective. Each episode focuses on one stage of the animals' lives, depicting the struggles they face in the quest to reach adulthood and the duty to continue their bloodline if they are successful in overcoming the odds and reaching parenthood.
David Attenborough looks back over a career that encompasses over sixty years of natural history film making. Focusing on three areas of particular interest, the pioneering presenter examines how science, the environment and film making itself have changed during his lifetime.
Twenty years ago, David Attenborough started making a series of programmes about the different groups of living organisms that inhabit the lands of our planet û birds and mammals, plants and insects, amphibians and reptiles. He looked at the history of each one from its first appearance and surveyed the multitude of different forms into which it now involved. Includes: 'Life in the Undergrowth', 'The Private Life of Plants', 'Life in Cold Blood', 'The Life of Birds', 'The Life of Mammals' and 'First Eden'.
These landmark series now form David Attenborough'ss Life on Land Collection and are brought to you here in the order in which these various groups arrived during the history of life.
To accompany these series is an index û which can be accessed interactively on each of the discs and is also included in this collection as a hard-backed book. You can use the index to look up a species and find not only on which disc (or discs) it appears, but by clicking on its name, summon it to your screen. You can also use the same method to find examples of particular aspects of natural history, such as mimicry and camouflage, aggression or courtship.
So now you have at your fingertips a 40-hour long panorama of the living world as it exists today at the beginning of the 21st Century.
Planet Earth 2
Four years in the making, with a budget of unprecedented proportions, Planet Earth has stretched the boundaries of natural history television.
High definition photography, revolutionary ultra-high speed cameras and detailed images from the air enabled the series to capture the most amazing footage ever seen. T
The first two series of the documentary presented by esteemed British wildlife commentator David Attenborough exploring some of the natural world's greatest curiosities. Among the issues examined by Attenborough are the role electric eels played in human research into electricity and other quirks in animals that have proved interesting to scientists and researchers. The broadcaster also looks at pairs of animals that share certain traits such as the emperor penguin and wood frog, both of which can live in exceptionally cold conditions; the rhino and the hedgehog, which possess formidable defences to deter predators; and gorillas and vampire bats, which have a reputation for aggression that is largely unwarranted by their behaviour.
The latest David Attenborough nature documentary series, shot in HD. This ambitious 2006 series, described as 'the definitive look at the diversity of our planet' was the first ever to be filmed entirely in high definition. Every episode but the first one looks at one of the Earth's natural habitats and examines its local features, together with the breadth of fauna found there. While filming it, the crew caught several firsts - places and animals never before caught on camera. The fact that it was co-funded by Discovery Channel, BBC and Japan's NHK, took 5 years to make and was shot in over 200 locations is apparent and the series is everything you'd expect from Sir David Attenborough and his team if they were unconstrained by budget or practicality.
Having completed travelling around the World in 80 days, Michael Palin set out to travel along the 30 degree East line of longtitude - from the North to the South Pole. This, however, proved much more of a challenge and Palin, and his film crew, managed to use most modes of transport to travel through 17 countries over 5 months.
Over the years, BBC wildlife documentaries have featured the most incredible footage, illustrating just how ingenious, beautiful, frightening – and even how funny the natural world can be. Now the most amazing and dramatic moments of these programmes have been collected on one DVD.
A combination of talent, patience, split-second timing – and not forgetting – good luck, has allowed some of the world’s most famous natural history film-makers to capture these unique and extraordinary moments on camera. The tension mounts as crocodiles prepare to ambush zebras at a river crossing; a ruthless python kills and eats a gazelle; unbelievable underwater filming captures the elegance of elephants swimming and David Attenborough gets close to mountain gorillas.
Along with bears, monkeys, meerkats, lions, whales and some of the more bizarre members of the animal world, these wildlife stars reveal the sheer awe-inspiring magic of the natural world.
The demise of the dinosaurs, 65 million years ago, did not leave the world empty. A succession of extraordinary creatures has since come and gone, leading to our own ancestors, and yet we know virtually nothing about them. These bizarre beasts were some of the most fascinating creatures ever to have inhabited our planet.
The award-winning team that brought us Walking With Dinosaurs now explores the rise of the mammals. The latest scientific findings, advanced computer graphics and strong natural history stories are combined as we return to the sights and sounds of extinct worlds... this time full of life you hardly knew existed.
Walking With Beasts takes you on a journey through time to distant worlds: from the hottest, wettest climate the earth has ever known to one of the coldest... the Ice Age. See the early forerunners of the whale (walking!), avoid the carnivorous pig the size of a rhino, and pity the horse the size of a cat, eaten by a bird the height of a man!
And we humans are not safe either... mighty saber-toothed cats with teeth the size of carving knives have a taste for our own ancestors!
Professor Iain Stewart is a renowned expert in geology and geo-science – the study of the earth and its atmosphere, oceans and biosphere.
In these acclaimed series, Professor Stewart tells the amazing stories of the relationship between earth, natural forces and the development of human civilisation. With his enthusiastic delivery and hands-on approach matched by phenomenal camerawork the series are a must-see for anyone with even the slightest interest in our planet.
