  • Attenborough is the best!

    By woodc
    Its crazy how hard it is to find good documentaries on itunes but this is worth purchasing to watch over and over. Excelent value. Also, cant wait for Planet Earth II to come out, hope they dont make us wait too long and especially hope they continue to give us the origional version with David Attenborough, no watered down version made for the US market!
  • Must watch

    By Beeewhiz
    Nature & documentary lovers this is a must watch. Attenborough is simply the best and one of a kind.
  • No Sigourney Weaver! :(

    Such an breathtaking serious, but I wish they had the US Discovery Channel Edition narrated by Sigourney Weaver. I don’t like this guys voice.
  • Amazing!!

    Best documentary ever! It can get a little slow at times, but is still incredible. I didn't want to at first, but, even though it's expensive, the HD version is beautiful, and I would recommend getting it. And for those of you asking, the narrator is David Attenborough, the original narrator. I would much rather have him than Sigourney Weaver.
  • Best documentary ever, but...

    By freeheeler
    The HD version looks absolutely terrible on a 60" LCD TV. Looks terrible on a 27" iMac, for that matter. What gives?
  • Great for Small Kids

    By iBigChill
    I love this series! Just buy it.
  • Where is Sigourney Weaver?????

    By Everbane37
    I spent a very long time searching for the version on blue-ray narratted by Sigourney Weaver, she has by far the better narratting voice for this series, and she was also the original narrattor for the series when it first premiered on TV (in america, dont know about elsewhere), i refuse to buy this without her narrating it, and am dissapointed that i cannot find it on iTunes. A good visual experience ruined by a narrator who sounds like a droning history teacher.
  • Good

    I got pole to pole and its a nice video with lots of information!

    Really Apple? Really? I purchased this in HD because I'd heard what a beautiful series it was and thought maybe I'd learn a few things in the process. Hooked my iPad up to my HDTV only to get this crap message: "This movie cannot be played because a display that is not authorized to play protected movies is connected". Tried it on 2 other TVs... same issue. Apparently my $32 gets me a movie that is supported by HDCP "high-bandwidth digital content protection". Another anti-piracy measure that does nothing but screw over millions of legitimate consumers. Apple doesn't bother to mention this when they're onstage talking about how revolutionary their products know...ANYWHERE ON THE PRODUCT PAGE!
