A Perfect Planet (DVD): David Attenborough A Perfect Planet (DVD)
David Attenborough
R272 Discovery Miles 2 720 Ships in 7 - 13 work days

Planet Earth is perfect.

Everything about our world - its size, its distance from the Sun, its spin and tilt, its moon - is perfectly suited to our existence, and our planet's natural forces perfectly nurture life. A global weather system circulates and distributes fresh water to all corners of the globe, marine currents deliver nutrients to even the deepest reaches of the ocean, sunlight warms and energises everything it touches, and powerful volcanoes create and fertilise the land. As a result, there is literally no part of our planet where life can’t be found.


Without volcanoes life on Earth would never have begun. They are responsible for both our breathable atmosphere and our oceans. Mineral rich ash from regular eruptions fertilise the land. They are the architects of the planet; over 80% of the earth’s surface is the result of magma rising from its molten interior - providing a platform for life.

The Sun
Life on our planet is solar powered. Every single part of Earth’s surface gets 4,380 hours of sunlight a year, but in different strengths depending on where you are: a variation that drives much of the natural world.

Water is vital for all life. Our perfect planet has this precious resource in abundance – yet most of it exists as sea water, too salty for terrestrial life to use. In fact of all the water on Earth, just 3% exists as freshwater, and almost all of that is locked up as ice or hidden in underground aquifers. Only a tiny fraction of our planet’s water is held in rivers and lakes where it can be accessed by the dazzling diversity of life on land – and it’s only made accessible through the actions of our planet’s weather; for weather is the force that distributes this freshwater around the world.

Oceans are the largest ecosystem on Earth, covering two thirds of our world’s surface and providing half the oxygen in our atmosphere. They’re home to as much as 80% of all life on Earth, and nearly three billion people rely on them for their primary source of food.

Our home, a blue glowing beacon of life, hangs alone in the cosmos. The only living world we know of. Life on our planet is shaped by the earth’s natural forces, but there is a new force, one so powerful, it is upsetting the balance of life on Earth and threatening our perfect planet – that force is us.

R282 Discovery Miles 2 820 Ships in 7 - 13 work days

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.

Tilda Swinton
R109 Discovery Miles 1 090 Ships in 7 - 15 work days

The Galapagos islands are a fascinating microcosm of our planet and home to some of the most astonishing creatures found anywhere on Earth: iguanas swim the sea like dragons, short-eared owls stalk petrels by day and 500 pound giant tortoises bellow over lava fields..

One thousand kilometres due west of Ecuador, where four major ocean currents unite, vast undersea volcanoes break the surface of the Pacific Ocean. Early explorers described these otherworldly islands as 'Las Encantadas'... 'the Enchanted Isles', but in time they became known as 'Galapagos'., the 'Islands of the Tortoises'.

Using Spectacular HiDefinition cinematography from land, sea and air, and blending dramatic landscapes with intimate animal behaviour, drama reconstruction and stunning satellite imagery, this ambitious series presents the most complete portrait ever of these fascinating islands.

Galapagos reveals how wildlife has found the most enterprising ways to get to grips with this restless volcanic outpost, why these islands are such a fascinating showcase for evolution, and the profound forces that influence the delicate balance of life.

Against a backdrop of smouldering volcanoes, brittle lava fields, fields of giant cactus and wave-pounded shores, witness blue-footed boobies plunge-diving in to treacherous waters, sea lions surfing, the beautiful courtship dance of the waved albatross, Darwin's finches as crafty tool-users and hawks hunting marine iguanas.

Galapagos is unlike any other place on Earth.

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 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!

Walking With Dinosaurs
In 1999 the BBC's Walking With Dinosaurs TV series changed the way we saw dinosaurs forever. This revolutionary show takes viewers right into the dinosaurs' world, showing them as if they were alive and filmed in the wild. Since then, the series has been seen by millions of people around the world and has won three Emmy awards. It brings to life the mystery and excitement of the age when these reptiles roamed our planet.

The makers of Walking With Dinosaurs returned to make two specials, The Ballad Of Big Al and Land Of Giants & The Giant Claw to continue to delight fans of the original series.

The Ballad of Big Al
Years ago, an amazing fossil was unearthed in Wyoming USA. Not only were the bones they found those of a dinosaur 'Big Al', but the skeleton of this creature was very nearly complete. The first programme follows his life – a 15-year story of a lone battle against formidable prey and voracious predators, whilst the second programme traces the scientific evidence of Big Al.

Land of Giants & The Giant Claw
In Land of Giants we join the adventuring zoologist, Nigel Marven as he visits the Argentinean landscape of 100 million years ago to attempt to see the biggest land predator bring down the biggest land prey, but will he succeed? In The Giant Claw Nigel travels back 75 million years to Mongolia, to track down the owner of the largest claws ever discovered. Negotiating the hazards of the Cretaceous is no walk in the park - will he live to discover the true nature of his quarry?

Planet Dinosaur (DVD): John Hurt Planet Dinosaur (DVD)

R132 Discovery Miles 1 320 Ships in 7 - 13 work days

Transporting you to locations across the globe and back in time through tens of millions of years, Planet Dinosaur uses unique hi-tech graphics to bring to life the most awesome and amazing creatures that ever lived. Almost all the dinosaurs featured were discovered in the last 10 years or so and forced a rewriting of the prehistory books.

Palaeontologists now know that dinosaurs spread to every part of the globe, and evolved in ways so monstrous, horrific and bizarre they make T Rex look very tame indeed. Planet Dinosaur is a completely immersive visual experience studded with curious facts and jaw-dropping action as well as charismatic monsters.

Presenting a brand-new global perspective on the prehistoric era, the series re-creates the creatures, their habitats and how they lived, from analysing their bones to watching them fight to the death.

Arctic (DVD): Bruce Parry Arctic (DVD)
Bruce Parry 1
R172 Discovery Miles 1 720 Ships in 7 - 13 work days

Amazon presenter Bruce Parry turns his attention to the Arctic Circle. Indigenous ways of life that have remained virtually unchanged for millennia will cease within our lifetimes. Marine mammal hunters, like the Inuit of Northern Greenland, will have to find new ways to live in this harsh place. They are the last of their kind. But for others, this rapidly changing world promises great opportunity. The Arctic is rich in oil, gas and minerals. The US geological survey estimates that 25% of the world's undiscovered oil and gas could be located under the polar ice cap.

However this series will not be a series about the politics or science of global warming. The focus will be human. Bruce, and his BAFTA-winning production team, have found a method of telling important global stories with humour and warmth, drawing a large, young audience to often difficult issues. Same immersive format as Amazon, with Parry embedding himself in a series of indigenous tribes plus camps of Westerners who make their living out of the region’s natural resources.
