Movie Reviews

Sir David Attenborough is flawless!
Dijon | Brooklyn Center, MN USA | 05/19/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I will purchase any DVD produced or narrated by David Attenborough. You just can't lose. This man could make mowing a lawn interesting. He involves the viewer so deeply in his documentaries that you crave more. I can't wait til The Private Lives of Plants becomes available on Region 1 [U.S. & Canada] DVD. I contacted the BBC and begged them to consider transferring it to Region 1 DVD. I saw a clip and it looks incredible. This (Wildlife Specials) set is no exception. It is absolutely fascinating as are all of Sir David's work. He is flawless in his work."
Good value for Wildlife enjoyment

"This two disc collection is a great value, each disc contains four shows narrated by David Attenborough, so it is not overbearing, and it offers beautiful wildlife pictures unhindered by presenters in the foreground.

DISC ONE contains four 45 min shows : CROCODILE, EAGLE, LEOPARD and POLAR BEAR. DISC TWO contains two 45 min shows HUMPBACK WHALE, WOLF, as well as two bonus programs, an hour show that collects some of nature's GREATEST WILDLIFE SHOWS and a 40 min show on NATURAL WONDERS OF THE WORLD.

The main eight shows have all been on PBS and are professionally done, which makes this two disc set more then worth the $20 price tag. The two bonus shows present many different segments about the animal world. I found the Greatest Wildlife Show to be the most entertaining, a one hour show presenting 12 short segments about various animals doing their most impressive natural activities. I think this is a great set of animal video stories and a worthwhile purchase for animal lovers to enjoy.

David Attenborough is the best

"David Attenborough is able to capture your attention and entertain you while teaching you about the natural world. He seems to love everything from the smallest plant to the largest mammal - and he is able to convey this love to his audience. With more people like Sir David, I am sure our world would be a better place and we wouldn't be facing the dangers of global warming.
These wildlife specials are very entertaining and informative."
Great documentaries, with good to very good picture quality
A. Amy | USA | 04/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I haven't yet seen all the episodes on this set, but what I have watched is predominately very good picture quality. Not as sharp as PLANET EARTH of course, but definitely nice. (Remember to try any not-so-recent material WITHOUT HD upconversion --for those of us who bought those players--before watching with this feature, as it tends to make older signals worse rather than better.)
If you've seen the horrible picture quality of LIFE OF BIRDS and are worried that this set is of similar reprehensible clarity, don't be! It will at least satisfy almost everyone."
