While I’ve had the opportunity to travel a little bit, the truth is there is so much of the world to see, and so many things that are being discovered – daily – that it’s virtually impossibly to explore all of the wonders and beauty our little planet holds. BBC’s Frozen Planet DVD gives the adventure in all of us the opportunity to see, experience, and be thrilled by the majesties and life that resides in our earth’s Polar Regions – the North and South Poles.
Inspiring Ice Imagery
Narrated by the excellent Sir David Attenborough, BBC’s Frozen Planet is a 3 disc set that contains about 5 hours of amazing scenery and beauty of the regions of the planet few people get to see in “real life.” This wonderful series takes you on a journey that will show you scenes that literally made me exclaim “How did they get that shot?” Fortunately, the “Frozen Planet” Blu-ray and DVD series also includes 60 minutes (6 10-minute featurettes) of behind the scenes footage that give you a glimpse into the extremes that BBC went to to capture these stunning videos.
One of the ways BBC always excels is how well David Attenborough narrates the storylines as we follow animals, ice, and nature through the dangerous cycle of winter, spring, summer, and fall in the Arctic and Antarctic regions. When the wolves were hunting for their cubs, I was rooting for them. I felt a surge of joy when the lost seal pup found it’s mother. This isn’t just watching a documentary, it’s discovering new animals, new continents, and new life.
I recommend BBC’s Frozen Planet for any DVD collection, along with some of their other popular series, such as Planet Earth and Human Planet. This is the type of series that the entire family can watch and enjoy, over and over. If you have very little ones, there are a couple of scenes of animals fighting or where animals are hunting where some blood is visible, but it’s very brief and not “gory.” No matter how many times I watch it, I look forward to seeing the wonderful cinematography and getting a peek into the lives of animals in these tough, icy “worlds.”
BBC’s Frozen Planet would make a great gift for friends, family, nature-lovers, and explorers-at-heart of any age. You can buy “Frozen Planet: The Complete Series” on Blu-ray for just $23.99 and on DVD for $19.49.
