Stunning, breathtaking images. Really beautiful in high def.

Not as varied as Planet Earth in subject matter, but if you liked that series (and I absolutely LOVED it) then you will want to see this.

Polished Documentary
Neil Dewitte | Birmingham, AL USA | 10/26/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This Blu-ray DVD has not had the hype that the Planet Earth series has had, but it rivals the series even within its limited content and definitely surpasses it in sound/editing.

This BBC series is broken into several episodes, all of which are well balanced with scientific information and amazing visuals of the Galapagos. Some episodes focus more above sea, others below, and yet others on the human interface with the islands.

The narration is top notch and the sound effects and music are beautiful - combined they really make this DVD shine. You definitely get a lot of bang for the buck on this DVD because it is a highly polished production."

"Three part documentary series. National Geographic and the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC)commission.

Visually stunning. You will be easily immersed into Galapagos.

The audio mix on Galapagos is a Dolby Digital 2.0 stereo track (448 kbps)

Building a documentary collection? Don't miss this!

Nice Blu-Ray transfer.

Narrated by actress Tilda Swinton."
I love this nature documentary

"Hmmmm....what can I say?...I think Planet Earth is over-rated. I like Galapagos more than Planet Earth. It is shorter (one disc), but the contents are just stunning. The HD quality of this disc is of a higher level than Planet Earth-it is simply marvelous and breathtaking. In terms of video quality, Planet Earth gets an 8, but Galapagos deserves a 10. The sound quality is awesome; the narration is perfect; the contents are mind-blowing. I don't care about the theory of evolution, creationism, or anything else. This disc tells the story as is: the beautiful islands, the wonderful life forms, and all the stunning display of mother-nature. I love this documentary."
